The Ultimate Fighting Championship returned to Toronto at the Air Canada Centre on Saturday night for UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort.
UFC 152 drew an attendance of 16,900 for a live gate of $1.92 million, according to UFC president Dana White at the post-fight press conference.
Jon Jones put on another masterful performance, despite an opening round near-miss, submitting Vitor Belfort with an Americana in the fourth round of their bout.
The promotion also headlined UFC 140 with Jon Jones last December, but drew a live gate of $3.9 million with an attendance of 18,303 fans.
The UFC’s first foray into Toronto was a record-setter, pulling in 55,724 fans and earned $12.075 million with UFC 129 at the Rogers Center. UFC 129 featured Canada’s favorite son Georges St-Pierre defending his belt against Jake Shields.
