Friday night's UFC on FX 3 event drew an announced attendance of 6,635 and a live gate of $329,110.

UFC president Dana White announced the figures in the night's post-event press conference, which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) attended.

UFC on FX 3 took place at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Fla., and featured the promotion's first-ever flyweight headliner with Demetrious Johnson vs. Ian McCall II.

The figures fell well short of the UFC's typical marks, and White admitted that the company considers southern Florida a "tough market" that the organization "still trying to figure out."

"I think it sucked," White admitted when pressed on his thoughts about the attendance. "It's tough down here."

Dana said attendance sucked.

This wasn't a big card or any real big names, you get what you put together. Some new ufc guys and some guys that have had just a few fights, other than the main card.

Also the small weight guys I think are harder to promote or aren't as big yet.
