UFC 157 Draws Best Attendace for Promotion at Honda Center, Solid Gate

When they first put the fight together, UFC president Dana White wasn’t quite sure what to expect out of Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche headlining at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The fight has come and gone, Rousey retaining her UFC women’s bantamweight championship, and if the numbers hold up, it will have been the UFC’s highest attendance ever at the Honda Center.

The gate and attendance aren’t official yet, but White said at the UFC 157 post-fight press conference that the event produced a $1.4 million gate and an attendance of 15,525.

Both UFC 121 featuring Brock Lesnar vs. Cain Velasquez and UFC 76 featuring Chuck Liddell vs. Keith Jardine produced higher gate revenues than UFC 157, but neither topped the attendance.

UFC 121 raked in $2.237 million on an attendance of 14,856, while UFC 76 did a gate of $1.985 million and 13,770 in attendance.
