Wednesday’s main event saw former UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit avenge a loss to Martin Kampmann in decisive fashion. The card, which aired live on FOX Sports 1, also saw Rafael dos Anjos nab his biggest victory to date over Donald Cerrone in the co-main event.

While the numbers were relatively low for a UFC card, White indicated that he was not bothered by the numbers because of the event’s mid-week placement making harder for fans to travel to Indy. The UFC’s previous trip to Indianapolis, for UFC 119, drew 15,811 fans for a $1,588,163 on a night that saw Frank Mir defeat Mirko “Cro Cop” Filopovic in the main event.
