UFC on Fox 6 Gate and Attendance: Numbers Remain Strong for Second Chicago Show

John Dodson and Demetrious Johnson at UFC on Fox 6The UFC returned to the United Center in Chicago on Saturday night, marking the second consecutive pre-Super Bowl weekend event in the Windy City.

By the numbers, UFC on Fox 6 was just as successful as UFC on Fox 2 was in 2012.

UFC on Fox 6, headlined by Demetrious Johnson and John Dodson, put 16,091 rear ends in the seats, and drew a gate of $1.27 million.

UFC on Fox 2, by comparison, drew 16,963 fans, a few hundred more than this year, but its live gate, $1.27 million, was exactly the same.

“We came back at the same time and did the same exact gate,” UFC president Dana White remarked at the post-fight press conference. “It was crazy, but I like it.

“I’m sure we’ll come back next year, probably (around the same time). I’d like to come in the summer, but what are you gonna do?”
