By comparison, the UFC has held three previous events in the Honda Center -- UFC 59, 63 and 76 -- which drew California State Athletic Commission-certified crowds of 12,604 to 13,814 spectators


I got this from mmajunkie

I think he meant the PPV buys, which should come out monday (at least thats what Atencio said) so we should know by than, or a few days later

While that is impressive, it's gonna be the PPV buys that makes or breaks Affliction


I just hope we can get at least one more because I enjoyed the hell out of their show on Saturday (even with Megadeth and all)

Afflictions CEO said they got over 100,000. Thats great numbers for your first show IMO.

It was discussed a little in the news section here .

And people are saying that the 100,000 figure might be inflated. CagePotato talks about it here .
