No matter what Zuffa bosses bought them on the competitiveness of Strikeforce, some of the figures rather suggest the opposite. For example, the number of tickets sold and the proceeds to them the sum of the last tournament
At the tournament Strikeforce: Rockhold vs. Jardine, who was in a relatively small Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, 927 tickets were sold, yet 1065 was obtained free of charge and 727 spectators and did not find its owner. The total profit from the tickets were $ 68 805, which is not particularly large, given the fact that only the official salaries of men spent more than $ 400 000.
This is not the first time after purchasing organizations when it proceeds from the tournament did not match the costs. In the autumn tournament in Cincinnati, which hosted the Grand Prix semi-finals of the heavyweights in the arena was less than 1500 spectators, and is not known how many of them paid for the ticket. At the same time wage costs were not weak men then $ 942 000.
