The UFC’s first trip to Sweden can be deemed a success, as UFC on FUEL TV 2: Gustafsson vs. Silva broke the live gate record at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.
UFC president Dana White announced the figures for gate and attendance after last night’s event. UFC on FUEL TV 2 pulled in an audience of 15,428 for a live gate of $2.23 million.
The numbers were compiled only by the UFC, as no athletic commission exists in Sweden to tally the official numbers. The event places in the top five for both gate and attendance records out of all the UFC’s European shows, including pay-per-views.
UFC on FUEL TV 2 saw Swedish native Alexander Gustafsson continue his rise up the light heavyweight rankings by taking a clear-cut unanimous decision over returning Brazilian bruiser Thiago Silva.
