Whilst the temporary outdoor site for UFC 112 is expected to be demolished on Monday, the venue at Concert Arena on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, provided a healthy financial return for the UFC coffers.

UFC 112 marked the UFC Middle East debut following the UAE government-owned Entertainment Flash’s acquisition of a 10 percent stake in Zuffa (parent company of the UFC) earlier this year. Concert Arena was created as a one off, outdoor, temporary location specifically for UFC 112 and will be demolished next week.

The outdoor location hosted Saturday’s event and attracted an attendance of 11,008, for a live gate of estimated $3.5 million.

UFC 112 showcased two title fights, Anderson Silva defended his middleweight title with a unanimous decision win over Demian Maia. This was a fight which delivered very little but raised many questions about the future of Anderson Silva. Anderson Silva‘s constant refusal to engage Maia and his almost continuous berating of the challenger resulted in boos and jeers from the erstwhile receptive and polite crowd.

Frankie Edgar beat BJ Penn in a display of superb footwork and relentless workmanship to capture lightweight belt.
