Sunday’s WEC 41 event at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California, headlined by a featherweight rematch between Mike Brown and Urijah Faber, broke the promotion’s records for attendance and live gate.
The Versus-televised event drew 13,027 fans for a $818,415 live gate, according to WEC general manager Reed Harris, who announced the figures at the post-event press conference.
Both the attendance and live gate records were previously held by WEC 34, which took place at the same venue last year and attracted 12,682 for a live gate of $738,855.
Though official figures are still pending, WEC 41 is also predicted to be the most-watched WEC event in history.
