Strikeforce's debut in the state of New Jersey resulted in a solid attendance figure of 11,287.

A Strikeforce official confirmed the tentative tally with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

If the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board verifies the number, Saturday's "Strikeforce and M-1 Global: Fedor vs. Silva" event will go down as the organization's second-highest attended show in its past 18 events.

It'll also mark just the seventh time in 44 events the organization has drawn at least 11,000 fans.

This is good news! Results like this provide incentives for other venues to host MMA that isn't the UFC.

I was there and that is a fair number but that crowd had to be 90% Russian and 99% Fedor fans. They had 3 russians on the card I can't see this being the norm for them. I can't see Hendo Feijao pulling anywhere near that number. Arnolds or not.
