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.
