The Ultimate fighting Championship returned to the Bell Centre in Montreal for UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz, and the show lived up to expectations in the Octagon and at the gate.
UFC president Dana White, following the fight, said that UFC 158 drew an attendance of 20,145 for a live gate totaling $3.71 million.
Those are much higher numbers in both categories than the promotion’s last trip to Montreal.
UFC 154, which took place last November featuring St-Pierre defending against Carlos Condit, sold 17,249 tickets producing gate receipts of $3.143 million.
