UFC on FOX 12: Lawler vs. Brown Attendance and Live Gate

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to San Jose on Saturday night, marking its fourth consecutive year in the California city.

UFC on FOX 12: Lawler vs. Brown was the second FOX card in San Jose, drawing an attendance of 11,482 people that produced a live gate of $735,317.

The last such card in San Jose was UFC on FOX 7 in April of 2013. That card was headlined by a title fight between then-lightweight-champion Benson Henderson and local fan-favorite Gilbert Melendez.

UFC on FOX 7 drew 13,506 people for a gate of $1.333 million in the same venue, although it then operated under the HP Pavilion moniker.

Robbie Lawler got the better of Matt Brown in the UFC on FOX 12 main event, winning the fight by unanimous decision. The victory also earned Lawler a rematch with UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks.
