Still no beating Liddell vs Ortiz 2

MMA Junkie has the estimated numbers on the UFC 100 gate, and they’re as good as you’d imagine: 11,000 people payed 5.1 million bucks to see the event. Here’s how it fits into the larger scheme of things:

The top five now includes:

1. UFC 66 (Liddell vs. Ortiz II): $5,397,300 gate (12,191 attendance)
2. UFC 83 (St. Pierre vs. Serra II): $5,100,000 gate (21,390 attendance)

5. UFC 91 (Couture vs. Lesnar): $4,815,675 gate (13,224 attendance)
