The UFC's 2012 return to Denver resulted in a fan attendance of 15,008 that earned a live gate of $650,000. UFC President Dana White announced those figures Saturday evening at the post-fight press conference.

Those numbers are down considerably from the UFC's last event in the Mile High City: UFC 135 in September of 2011. Those fights also took place at the Pepsi Center:. According to commission figures, UFC 135 drew 16,344 attendees for a final gate of $2,089,575. Of the 16,344 in attendance, 14,247 paid for tickets and 2,097 were comped.

There were no figures on the number of comped tickets for Saturday's UFC 150 event.

UFC 135 was headlined by a light heavyweight title bout between Jon Jones and Quinton Jackson. Jones defeated Jackson via fourth-round submission.

Saturday's event was headlined by a lightweight title bout between Ben Henderson and Frankie Edgar. Henderson retained his UFC lightweight title via split decision.
