UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz Gate and Attendance

UFC CanadaThe Ultimate fighting Championship returned to the Bell Centre in Montreal for UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz, and the show lived up to expectations in the Octagon and at the gate.

Georges St-Pierre defended his UFC welterweight championship by dominating Nick Diaz en route to a five-round unanimous decision in the night’s main event.

UFC president Dana White, following the fight, said that UFC 158 drew an attendance of 20,145 for a live gate totaling $3.71 million.

Those are much higher numbers in both categories than the promotion’s last trip to Montreal.

UFC 154, which took place last November featuring St-Pierre defending against Carlos Condit, sold 17,249 tickets producing gate receipts of $3.143 million.
