UFC 139 Draws Solid Gate and Attendance

UFC 139 posterMauricio “Shogun” Rua and Dan Henderson put on what was easily a Fight of the Year candidate, and what was designated for UFC 139 co-Fight of the Night honors by UFC president Dana White.

That fight, and a laundry list of other exciting fights and finishes, ushered in a reported attendance of 13,173, according to White at the UFC 139 post-fight press conference.

He added that gate receipts totaled $1.268 million, although the California State Athletic Commission will have the official numbers of record sometime next week.

UFC 139: Shogun vs. Henderson took place on Saturday, Nov. 19, at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., the longtime home base of Strikeforce.
