The Ultimate Fighting Championship released the live gate and attendance figures for UFC on FOX 7 during the post-fight press conference on Saturday.
13,506 spectators were in attendance to witness Henderson defend his belt for the third time. After five rounds, Henderson won a razor-close split decision over Melendez.
The event garnered gate receipts that totaled $1.333 million in revenue, which is on par to what the numbers were for UFC on FOX 6 on Jan. 26.
The next UFC event to air on the FOX network will be July 27 from the KeyArena in Seattle, Wash.
