Strikeforce: Fedor Vs Werdum Ticket Sales Lower Than Anticipated

At the conclusion of Strikeforce: Fedor Vs Werdum, Scott Coker announced that they estimated the audience to be 12,698, a somewhat mediocre number based on previous attendances at the HP Pavilion in San Jose.

Unfortunately when the official numbers were released today it turned out the crowd was in actual fact less than expected at just 11,757. The gate receipts remained roughly as expected however, raking in $1,066,739.

The final results will surely be somewhat of a disappointment to the promotion, particularly as it came on a night when they had a far larger than usual payout of $789,000 due to Fedor Emelianenko’s bumper $400,000 salary.
