The Ultimate Fighter 25 Finale gate and attendance will likely be dwarfed by Saturday night’s UFC 213: Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2, but the exciting finish will be hard to overcome.
The TUF 25 Finale drew 6,308 fans to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, which produced a gate of $432,495.
Former World Series of Fighting lightweight champion Justin Gaethje made a splash in his Octagon debut in the TUF 25 Finale headliner.
He opened strong before Michael Johnson fought back to put him in trouble. But just when it looked like Gaethje would be finished, he battled back from the brink to take out Johnson with a fiery assortment of punches, kicks, and devastating knees.
