UFC 135 recorded a gate of $2,089,575 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, on Sept. 24, 2011, according to official figures from the Colorado Athletic Commission released earlier today.

The final attendance of 16,344 was a result of 14,247 tickets sold and 2,097 complimentary tickets.

UFC 135 featured the first light heavyweight title defense of 24-year-old phenom Jon Jones, who successfully defended his belt with a fourth round submission victory over Quinton Jackson.

And with a fairly mediocre undercard, it bodes well that "Bones" brought the boys to the yard to watch him ply his craft. The sky is truly the limit.

Jones impressive victory set up his second title defense, which will be against Rashad Evans just as soon as both men are healthy enough to compete.

It can't get here soon enough.

Also on the docket at UFC 135 was a welterweight showdown that may or may not have resulted in the retirement of Matt Hughes, who was viciously knocked out by a returning Josh Koscheck.

Nothing lasts forever.
