UFC 192 Gate & Attendence Record Lows For Houston Venue

UFC 192 Gate & Attendence Record Lows For Houston Venue

UFC 192 was the fourth show held in the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas by the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Unfortunately, reports indicate it was also the least attended by fans, and accounted for the lowest gate.

Dave Scholler, the UFC Vice President of Public Relations, was quoted by MMA Weekly that the venue was “less than capacity” at 14,622 and “the lowest attendance of a UFC event in the promotion’s four trips to Houston.”

The announced gate was $1,859,000, which was also the lowest of the four. In fact, the number represents the first time a UFC event failed to reach the $2 million mark.

The event was the first UFC event at the Toyota Center since October 2013.

The promotion’s last visit to Texas, UFC 166, had a reported attendance of 17,238 and a gate of $2.5 million. The main event that night was the third bout between heavyweights Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos.

In October 2011, UFC 136 drew a reported attendance of 16,164 and a gate of $2.23 million to the Toyota Center. Frankie Edgar defended his lightweight title against Gray Maynard in the main event, with Jose Aldo’s featherweight title defense against Kenny Florian serving as co-main event.

The first UFC event to be held at the Toyota Center was UFC 69 in April 2007. Attendance was reported at 15,269 with a gate of $2.8 million. The event was headlined by welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre’s defense against Matt Serra.
