177 577,000

Payout Perspective:

It was another overseas event with not a lot of known fighters for the casual fan.  Yet, it did well on Good Friday as it was third in live sports programming for the night to the NHL Playoffs on NBC Sports Network and USA.  Of course, this was without the NBA to compete with as the playoffs did not start until Saturday.
