The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s return to Seattle produced stellar performances from a majority of the fighters, but it also posted strong attendance and gate numbers as well.

The KeyArena drew 14,412 fans for UFC on Fox 5: Henderson vs. Diaz on Saturday night, accounting for a live gate of $1.5 million.

That’s a solid number, outdoing UFC Fight Night 24, which was the promotion’s last trip to Seattle in 2011. That card, headlined by Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Phil Davis, drew 13,741 fans for a live gate of $1.18 million.

UFC on Fox 5 featured lightweight champion Benson Henderson putting on a masterful performance in the night’s main event. Expected to have a difficult fight against Nate Diaz, Henderson dominated from bell to bell, scoring a five-round unanimous decision, winning each and every round on all three scorecards.
