The UFC returned to Florida on Friday night for UFC on FX 3, featuring the flyweight rematch between Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall.
The fights delivered in spades, particularly the main card with several knockouts and a submission finish, but don’t call UFC president Dana White a fan of the turnout in the Sunshine State.
“I think it sucked,” said White. “It’s tough down here.”
The attendance for UFC on FX 3 was in line with the majority of the UFC’s past events in Florida, drawing an attendance of 6,635 and a gate of $329,110
“Everybody is great every time we come down here. We had tons of media,” White added, “(But) Florida has always been tough; it’s a tough market.”
It’s been so tough, that the UFC’s head honcho doesn’t sound like he wants to come back any time soon.
“I’m not saying we’ll never come back, but it’s gonna be a while.”
