The NSAC today announced the attendance and live gate for last week's WEC 44 event. The event drew 1845 total fans to The Pearl At The Palms, of which 1132 paid and 713 comps were issued. 297 tickets were unsold/unused. The live gate was $131,200, but while that sounds low WEC likely received free use of the venue so that number likely is not a failure by any means.

I'd say everything about that is failure. I could feel that no one was there when I watched it, ugly. And a third of the people there didn't pay? Lucky there wasn't a title fight, that would've been a disaster.

You'd think with 106 four days after WEC, the could have had some sort of promotion to bring people in.

Aldo vs. Brown was a title fight.
