UFC 207 draws largest MMA attendance in Nevada
December 31, 2016
UFC 207 drew 18,533 and a live gate of $4.75 according to UFC officials post-event. The gate set an attendance record in Nevada but lands 14th on the list of biggest gates in Nevada.
The event was a sell-out according to the UFC. As we reported on Friday morning, there were just scattered tickets available through the T-Mobile Arena. It was announced that they were also selling standing room only tickets.
The numbers narrowly beat out UFC 200 (18,202) for attendance but UFC 200 had the bigger gate $10.7 million.

In comparison UFC 141, the last Friday night show in Vegas for the company did 13,793 and a $3.1 million for Lesnar-Overeem.
Dana White indicated that he predicted the gate to be $4.5 million and the numbers did slightly better perhaps due to the standing room only seats. The sell out on a Friday night before New Year’s Eve shows the star power of Ronda Rousey.
