Jon Jones continued his dominant streak with a submission win over Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 in Toronto. The young champion finished another former champ and solidified himself as a force to be reckoned with for years to come.
The UFC’s return to the Great White North garnered 18,303 spectators, UFC president Dana White said at the post-fight press conference.
The gates scooped up $3.9 million and cement the Toronto event as a solid performance in regards to ticket sales.
As expected, UFC 140 did very well and Canadian fans continue to go wild for the Las Vegas-based promotion. It’s easy to say they eagerly anticipate the UFC’s return to Canada.
