WEC 47:Bowles vs. Cruz draws $401,000 live gate

Ohio Athletic Commission Executive Director Bernie Profato today confirmed that the WEC 47 event at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, drew an official live gate of $401,000.

WEC 47 drew an estimated attendance of 8,345, ticket prices started at $25 – $125 for floor seats.

Profato said an official attendance figure isn’t really known since the arena’s “lodge seats” aren’t figured into attendance totals. Approximately 8,700 traditional seats were used, and with lodge seats, the attendance could have reached nearly 9,500, he said.
