Condit Alves UFC Fight Night 67

Despite boasting an impressive main-event bout between a returning Carlos Condit and Thiago Alves, UFC Fight Night 67 still drew the lowest attendance number in the company’s history in Brazil with approximately 3,500 fans.

UFC General Manager in Brazil, Giovani Decker, addressed the low attendance numbers during the UFC Fight Night 67 post-fight press conference. “We know Brazil is going through an economic crisis,” Decker said. “That reflects in all areas of the economy, so also reflects here in the events. On the other side, in terms of pay-per-view numbers on Combate, we’re reaching historical numbers. If we didn’t do good numbers today, MMA continues to do historical numbers in other sides. We’re doing fine…”
