Question Why the empty seats for finale

Well with all the lights out and the empty seats doesn't make the TUF/UFC look good. Hell if you can't fill seats in Vegas where will you? Goldie is such an idiot saying this place is electric when you can barely hear the croud cheer. Whats going on ?

Cant explain not filling up the seats, but IMO the overall feel/appearance of the broadcast on tv seems extremely sloppy....

well, near the end the seats were pretty full... It was the undercard fights that the put in the middle of the show that had empty seats, and that is the norm for just about every fight!

I liked the comment "this crowd is electric" camera pans left to an entire section of empty seats. Anyway ppv's have crowds freebies with up and coming fighters don't pack the seats.

also, let's remember, when the main event starts at 11:30 on the east coast, it's only 8:30 in vegas. most people are just waking up. also, vegas is in the bigtime hurtin locker financially these days. people ain't gonna spend a bunch of money on a card with no real "main event".
