It may have been just over 9,000, but the volume presented by the Brazilian crowd following Vitor Belfort’s victory Saturday night sounded like at least double that.
Belfort defeated Michael Bisping in the main event of UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping from Sao Paulo, Brazil. The former UFC champion knocked Bisping out a future title shot, thrilling the 9,116 fans in attendance.
The announced crowd figure was confirmed by MMAjunkie.com during the post-fight press conference. The event took place from the Ibirapuera Gymnasium.
