The UFC’s 11th visit to London proved to be the promotion’s most lucrative, as UFC on ESPN+ 5 drew an announced attendance of 16,602 for a live gate of $2.4 million.

UFC officials announced the figures following the event, which MMA Junkie attended. A UFC official revealed to MMA Junkie’s John Morgan that the gate was the highest ever for a show in London.

UFC on ESPN+ 5 took place Saturday at The O2 and streamed entirely on ESPN+.

In the main event, Jorge Masvidal returned from a 16-month layoff and scored a devastating second-round knockout of Darren Till. In the co-headliner, Leon Edwards won a split decision against Gunnar Nelson.

After the show, Masvidal and Edwards got into a physical altercation backstage.
