UFC on Fuel TV 5 marked the promotion’s first time in Nottingham, England, drawing an attendance of 7,241 fans amounting to a live gate of $970,000, according to UFC officials at the post-fight press conference.

It wasn’t a sellout, but it was a fairly full house in an arena that holds in the neighborhood of 8,000.

Those aren’t staggering numbers, but they are very solid of a UFC on Fuel TV card.

UFC president Dana White held up the comparison of the Jon Jones headlined UFC 152 fight card, which drew $1.92 million with 16,900 fans.  Those are much larger numbers, but the Fuel TV card in Nottingham drew well in a new location and with no title fights, so White was happy.

“We did almost a million-dollar gate (in American dollars),” said the UFC boss. “It’s a good market over here. There’s a lot of crazy fans over here. Everywhere we go, the places are packed.”

The only UFC on Fuel TV fight card that has drawn pay-per-view type numbers was UFC on Fuel TV 2 in Sweden. With Swiss fighter Alexander Gustafsson headlining, that card drew an attendance of 15,428 for a live gate of $2.23 million.
