The last event to take place at the T-Mobile Arena was UFC 216. On that night, Tony Ferguson captured the interim lightweight title over Kevin Lee in the main event. The co-main event featured Demetrious Johnson breaking the UFC record for title defenses when he retained his featherweight strap over Ray Borg. That card drew 10,638 fans for a gate of $677,999. 

Of the four UFC pay-per-view events to take place at T-Mobile Arena this year, UFC 219 had the highest attendance, but the third highest gate. UFC 209: Woodley vs. Thompson 2 drew 13,150 fans for a gate of $2.38 million while UFC 213: Romero vs. Whittaker drew 12,834 and a $2.4 million fate. 

UFC 219's numbers are way down from last year's year-end event at T-Mobile. That card was headlined by Ronda Rousey's return to the octagon, drawing 18,533 fans and a $4.75 million gate. 

As far as the fights go, the event saw just two finishes in 10 fights. 

Tim Elliott took home a Performance of the Night bonus for his second round submission over Mark De La Rosa. Despite getting Marc Diakiese to tap in the third round to a guillotine choke, Dan Hooker did not walk away with a Performance of the Night bonus. Instead, Khabib Nurmagomedov earned those honors for his one-sided beatdown of Edson Barboza.

The women's featherweight title fight was awarded Fight of the Night. 

Elliott, Nurmagomedov, Holm, and Cyborg pocketed an extra $50,000 for their efforts.
