This month's WEC 47 event at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, drew an official live gate of $401,000.

Ohio Athletic Commission Executive Director Bernie Profato today confirmed the total with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The March 6 event, which drew an initially estimated attendance of 8,345, had extremely affordable ticket prices that started at just $25 and topped off at a surprisingly low $125 for floor seats.

Profato said an official attendance figure isn't really known since the arena's "lodge seats" aren't figured into attendance totals. Approximately 8,700 traditional seats were used, and with lodge seats, the attendance could have reached nearly 9,500, he said.
