According to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, 13,561 fans packed the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on December 29th to witness “UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez II.”

The New Year’s Eve weekend event garnered a live gate of $3,286,025.

Of the 13,561 folks in attendance, the NSAC reports 10,590 fans paid to enter the venue, while 2,971 people received complimentary tickets.

There were 347 unsold seats.

The official numbers are nearly identical to what UFC president Dana White reported during the UFC 155 post-fight press conference. White initially said 12,423 fans had packed the arena, generating $3.286 million at the door.

The pay-per-view’s featured attraction showcased a heavyweight title tilt between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez (Pictured). Velasquez easily avenged the only blemish on his résumé to reclaim his crown.
