UFC On Fuel TV Live Gate And Attendance Figures

The UFC was in Omaha, Nebraska for Wednesday's debut UFC Fight Night on Fuel TV. MMA Weekly reported the gate and attendance figures as 6,283 attendees for a total of $405,895 in receipts.

MMA Mania points out that the numbers were down a bit from the UFC's last visit to Warren Buffett's hometown:

Those numbers are down from the promotion's previous trip to Omaha for UFC Fight Night 15: "Diaz vs. Neer," back on Sept. 17, 2008, which garnered 9,103 fans for a $700,000 live gate.

UFC on Fuel TV featured a headliner between welterweight contenders Jake Ellenberger and Diego Sanchez. Ellenberger survived a third round scare to garner a unanimous decision win. The co-main event saw heavyweight Stefan Struve get a second round TKO over Dave "Pee Wee" Herman.

The promotion handed out $50,000 Fight Night bonuses to Ivan Menjivar for Submission of the Night, Stipe Miocic for Knock Out of the Night and Sanchez and Ellenberger for Fight of the Night.
