UFC 175 Gate and Attendance Figures

MMA Weekly

The UFC earned a $4.2 million gate with their efforts at UFC 175 in Las Vegas on Saturday, company president Dana White announced.

A total of 10,088 fans attended the fights, which took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

In the main event, Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida engaged in a memorable affair that lasted a full 25 minutes. In the end, Weidman successfully defended his title with a unanimous decision over the former light heavyweight champ.

In the co-main event, Ronda Rousey imposed her will on Alexis Davis, and it only took 16 seconds to do so. Rousey secured a judo throw after landing a right hand that shook Davis, then scored consecutive punches on the ground on the way to the knockout victory.

Other main card winners included Uriah Hall and Russell Doane. A fight between Stefan Struve and Matt Mitrione was canceled due to Struve having fainted in the moments before their fight.
