UFC 115 Rumored Flop at the Movie Theaters

According to Dave Meltzer on Observer Radio: (audio)
"Oh, by the way, from everything that I can gather, the UFC closed circuit bombed [Saturday] night."

"I mean just a lot of reports of 20 people, 16 people, 35 people in theaters."

"It wasn’t the show for it."

"You know, I mean the bar stuff I’ve heard you know people say that there was 1/5th as many people as [UFC 114] and… again, I mean, you know you can’t come, it’s two weeks, it’s real quick to come back and I mean for any show and this was I mean you know they ended up having a good show but it was just too quick and you know in between two monster main events, ... they booked a match that people really didn’t want to see. ...Most people really don’t want to see Rich Franklin get knocked out and everyone loves Chuck."
