UFC 155: dos Santos vs. Velasquez II drew an attendance of 12,423, which accounted for a live gate of $3.286 million, according to UFC president Dana White.
The numbers were announced at the post-fight press conference following the event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
Despite being a 2-to-1 underdog according to most of the oddsmakers, Cain Velasquez stormed into the UFC 155 main event, reclaiming his belt from Junior dos Santos in dominating fashion.
As hard as he tried, Velasquez couldn’t quite put dos Santos away, but he battered the now-former champion for the duration of their five-round bout.
The show stopper, however, was the co-main event battle between Jim Miller and Joe Lauzon, who put on a stunning battle, also for the duration, with Miller coming out on top in the UFC 155 Fight of the Night.
The promotion returns to Las Vegas for UFC 156 on Super Bowl weekend.
