Saturday night's UFC 149 pay-per-view event drew an announced attendance of 16,089 and a live gate of $4.1 million – a new live gate record for the venue.

UFC president Dana White announced the figures at the night's post-event news conference, which MMAjunkie.com attended.

UFC 149 took place at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary and was the promotion's first visit to Canada's fourth largest city. The card featured a main event interim bantamweight title fight between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber, which Barao won by five-round unanimous decision.

Although it is always a good thing that UFC is being watched by more and more people - it's a real shame that it was one of the most uneventful UFC's this year that had the most views

With all the changes that were made to the card, should have found a way to get it on Cable
