UFC on Fuel TV 6 Draws Strong Gate and Attendance for Fuel TV-Based Event


The Ultimate Fighting Championship made its China debut on Saturday with UFC on Fuel TV 6: Franklin vs. Le, drawing a strong gate and attendance.

UFC on Fuel TV 6 took place at the Cotai Arena in Macao, drawing 8,415 fans for a live gate of approximately $1.3 million. Those numbers are strong enough for second best out of the promotion’s six Fuel TV events thus far.

The only Fuel TV event to do better was UFC on Fuel TV 2 in Sweden, which featured Alexander Gustafsson vs. Thiago Silva. That event drew pay-per-view like numbers of 15,428 in attendance and $2.23 million at the gate.

UFC on Fuel TV 6 featured many Asian fighters for the promotion’s first foray into China, with Vietnamese born Cung Le providing a stunning capper to the night. He floored former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin with one powerful right hand to the jaw, that left the crowd stunned.
