UFC 175 Horizontal Poster-BlueThe UFC earned a $4.2 million gate with their efforts at UFC 175 in Las Vegas on Saturday, company president Dana White announced.

A total of 10,088 fans attended the fights, which took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

In the main event, Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida engaged in a memorable affair that lasted a full 25 minutes. In the end, Weidman successfully defended his title with a unanimous decision over the former light heavyweight champ.

In the co-main event, Ronda Rousey imposed her will on Alexis Davis, and it only took 16 seconds to do so. Rousey secured a judo throw after landing a right hand that shook Davis, then scored consecutive punches on the ground on the way to the knockout victory.

Other main card winners included Uriah Hall and Russell Doane. A fight between Stefan Struve and Matt Mitrione was canceled due to Struve having fainted in the moments before their fight.

    I didn’t build the UFC into the brand it is today so maybe I don’t know but this seems ridiculous to me. I want to see this sport grow and this isn’t how to do it. Only 10,088 fans for a superfight like Weidman vs Machida and another title fight for co-main event? But a 4.2 million gate means they definitely made bank for an average ticket price of over $400! (dont know how many comps there were)

    Lower the ticket prices and get bigger venues so more fans can experience the live event! They shouldn’t just be content with a shallow but high-dollar pool imo.

      I agree but I think this was just a case of they wanted this fight to be in Vegas and thats the just the size of that venue. I mean, they have other types of venues frequently. But yeah, I think it should have been in a much larger arena as it was a superfight pretty much….imo.

      ps Dana why can’t the Jones/Gus fight be in Stockholm?

        Maybe because Champions deserve and earn “Homecourt”.

    Rousey is vastly underpaid.
