UFC 86 Nearing Sellout

June 30, 2008

Dave Meltzer reports on F4wOnline.com:

Saturday night’s UFC in Las Vegas is almost completely sold out. They just opened up closed-circuit for the overflow at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in the Pacific Ballroom and tickets went on sale yesterday

That is a very strong showing for the UFC. The general lack of heat between Rampage and Forrest Griffin had worried some about how UFC 86 would perform at the gate and on PPV. The numbers also are impressive because the card lacks a solid sub-main as a draw or any overly attractive undercard fights. If the numbers hold up compared to similar Vegas events they are likely looking at a gate in the $3.5 to $4.5 million range.

Got something to say?
