An estimated 7,642 fans attended Saturday’s UFC on FX 8. It was the promotion’s sixth show to come out of Brazil and first from Jaragua do Sul.
It’s not known if the number of free tickets is part of that figure released by the UFC.
The headliner witnessed Brazil’s Vitor Belfort finish Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in the first round in a fast paced match. It was Belfort’s second straight fight out of Brazil, with the other being in January when he defeated Michael Bisping.
UFC on FX 8 came from the Arena Jaragua in Brazil. The prelims aired on Facebook and FUEL TV while the main card fights were seen on FX.
