Count Seattle as a success for the UFC’s debut effort in the city with a sold-out crowd and tremendous live gate.

UFC Fight Night 24 took place at Key Arena in Seattle and pulled in a sellout crowd of 14,212 for Saturday night’s fights, which aired on Spike TV and Facebook.

The attendance pulled in a live gate of $1,182,850, according to UFC officials.

The attendance will rank as one of the highest for a UFC Fight Night show, and Seattle will more than likely see an event back in their city after a warm welcome for the promotion.
