MMA

Despite Demetrious Johnson vs. Ray Borg being called off days before UFC 215, the event still managed to sell out the Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

During the UFC 215 presser, UFC executive David Shaw said the official attendance of the fight was 16,232 and attracted a live gate of $2.03 million. Shaw did admit that the Johnson vs. Borg fight created a large demand for refunds, but the preceding ticket sales far exceeded the refunds issued in the days leading up to the fight.
