Wow. I know it wasn't a card with huge names, but that seems pretty low. Especially with the number of European fighters on the card.

Google told me the capacity is 10,000, so not bad, i wonder if the empty seats were noticeable

They did a good job of production not showing the empty seats, didn't even think it was that low, only 7k people showing up to a 10k max. For how loud they were for Pickett and Hardy you'd think there was 20,000 people

I hope it was intentional- folk in Europe are fed up getting poor cards, especially the way its rubbed in your face 7 days later with a great card in the US.

Personally I thought this card was better on paper than UFC 152, minus the fact of title fights, and this main event > Jones/Belfort. And I paid $140 to go see 152
