Following the grueling conclusion of The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale on Saturday night, UFC officials announced the show's live gate and attendance from Las Vegas, Nevada. According to reports from MMA Diehards, 1,649 fans filled the Palms Casino Resort.
By comparison, June's The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale drew 2,053 to the same venue for a live gate of $440,150.
Spectators in attendance witnessed Michael Bisping's brutal entrance into the UFC middleweight title picture. The divisive British veteran worked a stand-up clinic en route to a bloody third-round TKO win over Jason "Mayhem" Miller in the night's main event. The defeat marked the first time Miller had been stopped since 2006.
"He's a tough son-of-a-gun," an exhausted Bisping said afterward. "I'm here to entertain. I feel like me and Jason put together a great season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter'. Thank you for watching."
