UFC 124 was a success when it came to the fights, and it was a winner when it came to the attendance and gate money as well.
UFC president Dana White announced following the action in Montreal that the Bell Centre packed in 23,152 for the largest audience in North American history.
The other goal that White predicted unfortunately came up just short. The live gate of $4.586 million while very impressive, did not break the record for the largest gate in history.
Still the live audience and gate numbers showed once again why the UFC will likely consider Montreal a home for their promotion for many more shows in the future.
