UFC on Fox 10 Fight Poster-red-478x270The UFC returned to the Windy City on Saturday night.

Single digit temperatures and a steady breeze flowing through downtown Chicago kept the UFC on Fox 10 audience from growing to the size that it had for the promotion’s prior two trips to United Center.

UFC on Fox 10: Henderson vs. Thomson drew 10,895 people to the United Center, amassing a live gate of $863,655.

The night was topped off by a five-round, lightweight fight between Benson Henderson and Josh Thomson. The two battled to the always-controversial split decision with Henderson getting the no from two of the three judges.

The promotion’s prior two events in Chicago, UFC on Fox 6: Johnson vs. Dodson and UFC on Fox 2: Evans vs. Davis, each drew more than 16,000 people and gates of at least $1.27 million.
