Biggest crowd in UFC history

UFC 129, featuring the return of Georges St. Pierre, takes place in Toronto later tonight. The event has already set the record for the largest crowd in UFC history, with some 55,000 tickets sold.

St. Pierre battles former Elite XC and Strikeforce champJake sields for the UFC welterweight title. St.Pierre is considered by many as the best fighter in the Ultimate Fighting Championship while Shields hasn’t lost since 2004.

Also on the UFC 129 card is the final match of legendary fighter Randy Couture’s career. Couture is entering The Octagon one final time, at the age of 47, to take on Lyota Machida. Jose Aldo defends his UFC featherweight title for the first time as well.
