UFC on Versus 6: Cruz vs. Johnson Pulls in Strong Attendance and Gate Receipts

The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday made its first trek to the United States capital city of Washington, D.C. It proved to be a good choice for the promotion, pulling in solid gate and attendance numbers for UFC on Versus 6 at the Verizon Center.

The event marked an announced attendance of 9,380 for gate receipts of $706,775. The gate is actually quite high for a Versus event, which typically pulls in numbers hovering around the $500,000 range.

UFC on Versus 6 was the promotion’s final event of its current television deal with the Versus network. The UFC recently struck a new seven-year deal with Fox Sports. The promotion will move all of its non-pay-per-view offerings to Fox in 2012.
