Dana White was recently on Fox Sports 1 and mentioned that UFC 205 is already breaking gate records for Madison Square Garden. White claims that this will be the biggest event so far in the history of the UFC.
White also mentioned that UFC 205 also breaks the record in Toronto for UFC 129 at 12 million dollars. It is exciting that such a big event is happening for the UFC. The big factor now is the hope that the fights end up to be more exciting than UFC 200.
White elaborated on the UFC going to New York for the first time and here are his words:
“Obviously, our first time going into MSG and it’s been such a big deal getting in there, I wanted to make sure when we went to New York, we delivered. There are three incredible title fights plus the rest of the card is packed with ridiculous fights including the main and co-main event on FOX Sports 1 that night for the prelims.”
