UFC 133 Gate Totals $1.5 Million With 11,583 In Attendance

UFC President Dana White announced at the UFC 133 post-fight press conference that "Evans vs. Ortiz 2" drew 11,583 fans for a live gate of $1.5 million. The event was held at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In the UFC 133 main event, Rashad Evans returned from a year-long layoff to rematch Tito Ortiz, who accepted the bout on just four weeks notice when "Suga's" original opponent, Phil Davis, went down with an injury. Evans defeated "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" with a knee to the midsection toward the tail end of round two.

In the co main event, former number one middleweight contender Vitor Belfort destroyed Yoshihiro Akiyama in less than two minutes, attacking him with furious fists that left him unconscious.
