Business wise the event is doing very well. Scott Coker says they’ve sold 9,815 tickets to the event with only 871 left to sell. Meanwhile, Kelly Kahl says they’ve completely sold out their commercial ad inventory for the event and they did it faster than they did with EliteXC and Kimbo Slice. Both are strong indicators of a successful event, but ratings will certainly play a major factor when CBS sits down to decide their future in the sport after the dust settles. Hopefully, those follow suit.
One last thing, Scott Coker mentions in his interview above that the WAMMA heavyweight title will be on the line tomorrow night, but he was apparently mistaken. WAMMA weaseled their way into the event somehow, but the fight is a three-rounder and not for the title.
Kelly Kahl after the jump.
