In advance of the match many people questioned whether Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort would draw but as confirmed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission it did very well at the box office. UFC 126 secured an official attendance of 10,893 with only eighteen empty seats in the entire Mandalay Bay Events Center. Those fans paid a total of $3,605,725 to watch what was billed as the deepest UFC card of all time. That is the third highest live gate of all time with only UFC 100 (Lesnar vs. Mir II) and UFC 79 (St. Pierre vs. Hughes III) having done better.
