WSoF 1 Gate + Attendance + TV numbers.

Quote:
The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Friday released the gate and attendance figures for World Series of Fighting’s inaugural event that took place on Nov. 3 at the Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

A total of 1,499 tickets were sold with gate receipts totaling $82,608.22, according to NSAC Executive Director Keith Kizer.

The event, “Arlovski vs. Cole,” aired live on the NBC Sports Network to an audience of 198,000 viewers.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski TKO’d Strikeforce veteran Devin Cole in the opening round of the main event, while Anthony “Rumble” Johnson added a stunning knockout win to his growing light heavyweight resume on the undercard.

The start-up organization handed out 4,076 complimentary tickets to the 10-fight event.


I cant say i have much knowledge in this stuff. Its obviously silly to compare these numbers to the numbers the UFC pulls. But im curious if someone more knowledgeable in this department can shed some info on how they did?? Taking in account how much they paid out the fighters. Which wasnt too much but it was fair (Imo).

So for this being their first show are these numbers average or bad or ????

Or should Arlovski, Anthony, Torres, have brought in more viewers to an unknown organization then it did???

I do know that WSoF was talked about somewhat which is something iv never seen for a new organization. So thats good atleast.

Was he really??

Well he was certainly over reaching.

Andrei Arlovski hasnt been in the UFC for over 4 years. And he hasnt exactly had a great career since leaving the UFC. So did he really expect to get 1-2million view from that?? Sure Torres and Anthony were on the card also BUT unless you are a serious MMA fan then those names mean nothing to you. And i think bellator also had an event the same day.

I dont see where he gets 1million people to watch the event.

It was a great event... but name value is everything.

Yah it was entertaining, but tons of mismatches. With that many comps especially for their launch...it's gonna be tough.

Commend their efforts though.

I wonder if this convinced NBC Sports Network to keep them for future events. Honestly this event pulled kind of average numbers. Do they want average numbers or will they look for another promotion?
