“I’ve been saying it for a long time, we’re gonna be the biggest sport in the world, and now maybe people don’t think I’m nuts anymore.” ---Dana White, UFC President

Even before it hits the stadium, is already a mind-blowing success. Even before starting history, it already found success.

The tickets of the event were sold out the moment it went on-sale to the general public, setting up a record of 55,000 seats, and breaking all the record of North America’s ticket sales record. Surely, the 129: St-Pierre vs Shields will be a huge wonder to the history of the biggest promotion organization.

The event features as he defends his welterweight belt in his home country against former Strikeforce middleweight champion .

UFC’s big boss himself, revealed this Tuesday that UFC 129 gate receipts as $11 million dollars, crushing the promotion’s previous best.

“I’ve been saying it for a long time, we’re gonna be the biggest sport in the world,” said White, “and now maybe people don’t think I’m nuts anymore.”
