MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The UFC's second-ever trip to Tennessee and first-ever to Memphis delivered on in-cage action, and a reported 13,896 fans came to the FedExForum to witness the events.

UFC president Dana White said at the event's post-fight press conference that "UFC 107: Penn vs. Sanchez" also delivered "over $1.5 million" at the gate.

The official numbers will be certified next week by the Tennessee Athletic Commission.

Featuring a main event between lightweight champion B.J. Penn and top challenger Diego Sanchez, UFC 107 featured the first title fight in the UFC since Lyoto Machida narrowly edged Mauricio "Shogun" Rua at UFC 104 in October.

Is that close to a sell out??

Cant wait to see some numbers after 110, If 10,000 sold in pre-sale, 11,000 sold the first day of public, Thats alot of cash!
