It had been just under eight years since the previous time the greatest Fighting Championship held a conference in Philadelphia, however UFC on ESPN 2 pronounced the yield by making a gate of more the million dollars.
Edson Barboza and Justin Gaethje headlined the Philly fight card which brought an attendance of 11,123 to Wells Fargo Arena, making a gate of 1,102,542.16.
UFC 133 was the latest prior event that the advertising held in Philadelphia, which comprised Rashad Evans stopping Tito Ortiz late in the second circular. UFC 133 produced similar amounts having an attendance of 11,583 amassing lien receipts of $1,500,000.
Gaethje didn’t want anywhere near as much time to finish Barboza since Evans did to complete Ortiz. Gaethje laid Barboza out at the midway point of round one with out a followup punch being thrown. Though he climbed up on the cage and did a back flip and stuck the landing for great step.
Gaethje and Barboza were awarded Fight of the Night honors.
