This past month's "Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Kennedy" event officially drew 4,186 attendees for a $132,905 live gate.

Of the 4,186 attendees, 61 percent (2,561) received complimentary admission.

MMAjunkie.com recently requested and received the figures from the Oregon State Athletic Commission, which oversaw the event.

I don't wanna hear a word from these guys about how low the Gate total and attendance were because they did less than the bare minimum to promote this fight and gave more than half of the tickets away for free. This card IMO was better on paper and in person than some of these recent cards that Dana has been proclaiming as "Great" fights. Either start putting some effort into this Promotion or absorb it into the UFC, just don't half ass it, it makes you look bad

the gate barely made a dent to cover fighter pay.
