UFC 166 is still an hour away, but Dana White is already ready to call it a huge success.

White revealed that the event is a “sellout,” with an expected $2.5 million live gate. To meet the demand for tickets, the UFC had to remove several large video screens to accommodate more seating.

“No end screens, just the center hung [screens],” White said at a press conference. “This place is going to be jam-packed wall to wall. We like Houston.”
