The TUF: Nations Finale had 5,029 fans in attendance, UFC President Dana White said during Wednesday’s post-fight press conference.

The Colisée Pepsi housed fans in the Quebec City, Quebec, Canada arena for a gate of $340,000.

“This is actually an above-average Ultimate Fighter Finale,” White said, referring to the size of the Canadian crowd.

Previous finales had fewer numbers than Wednesdays event, with TUF 18 doing a $322,00 gate, TUF 16 doing $318,000, and TUF 15 doing a gate of $195,000, White said.

In the main event, Tim Kennedy and Michael Bisping went the distance, fighting five rounds with Kennedy coming out on top with a unanimous decision.

In the co-main event, TUF Nations coaches Patrick Cote and Kyle Noke also fought to a decision, with Cote ending up the victor.

Earlier in the evening, Elias Theodorou and Chad Laprise left Quebec City with new UFC contracts, winning their respected weight divisions on the reality series.
