UFC 215 draws announced sellout of 16,232 in Edmonton debut despite losing Johnson-Borg


EDMONTON – Saturday’s UFC 215 attendance drew an announced sellout crowd for the promotion’s debut in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

The attendance for the event was 16,232, which created a live gate of $2,028,307.14 (USD).

The UFC announced the tallies for the event, which MMAjunkie attended.

UFC 215 took place at Rogers Place, and the main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass. It marked the 24th UFC event in Canada.

It was also the second event in the province of Alberta, which hosted “UFC 149: Faber vs. Barao” in 2012. That show, which took place at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, drew an announced attendance of 16,089 for a live gate of $4.1 million.
