MMA Weekly is reporting that the UFC gathered a total of $3.7 million at the live gate last night for UFC 84: “Ill Will”. UFC President Dana White reported the figure at the post-event press conference at The MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event was headlined by a UFC Lightweight Title fight featuring former champ Sean Sherk against the current strap holder B.J. Penn.
Though Zuffa’s most recent efforts for UFC 83: “Serra vs. St. Pierre 2” pulled together a live gate total of $5 million, the $3.7 for last night’s event makes it the fourth highest grossing MMA event in Nevada’s history. Live attendance for the event totaled out at 14,773 for the night.
