UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber pulled in an announced attendance of 12,947 for gate receipts totaling $2.3 million, according to UFC president Dana White. The event took place Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz maintained a firm grasp on his belt and threw a little water on the fire that had been brewing between himself and Urijah Faber.

The numbers for UFC 132 weren’t blockbuster, but they were in line with what the UFC has been pulling at the MGM Grand lately. UFC 125: Resolution, featuring Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard, drew an attendance of 13,947 and a gate of $2.2 million. More recently, UFC 130, featuring Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Matt Hamill, brought in 12,753 in attendance and $2.6 million in gate receipts.
