UFC on Fox 7 Gate and Attendance

The Ultimate Fighting Championship released the live gate and attendance figures for UFC on FOX 7 during the post-fight press conference on Saturday.

UFC on FOX 7 took place at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, Calif., and was headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and former Strikeforce titleholder Gilbert Melendez.

13,506 spectators were in attendance to witness Henderson defend his belt for the third time.  After five rounds, Henderson won a razor-close split decision over Melendez.

The event garnered gate receipts that totaled $1.333 million in revenue, which is on par to what the numbers were for UFC on FOX 6 on Jan. 26.

In the co-main event, heavyweight Daniel Cormier remained undefeated with a unanimous decision win over former UFC titleholder Frank Mir.

The next UFC event to air on the FOX network will be July 27 from the KeyArena in Seattle, Wash.
