In March 2011, the Ultimate Fighting Championship went to Seattle. Officials released 8,000 tickets for "UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis," the city's first such event. They hoped to sell enough to fill out the lower bowl at KeyArena. It did not matter that the card was not pay-per-view-worthy. Ticket sales surpassed 14,000 the day before the fight. The total attendance figure (13,741) was almost 33 percent more than the previous Fight Night record (10,267). The $1.182 million gate was the first million-plus night for the series.

Saturday night's UFC 172 set a record for the largest attendance for an event at Baltimore Arena at 13,485, Ultimate Fighting Championship president Dana White said after the card's conclusion. White said the $2.3 million gate ranked second in the building's 53-year history behind only a Rolling Stones concert. The numbers only supported what was obvious from the start of Saturday's fights -- Baltimore fully embraced the UFC's first visit here. White highlighted the fact that the seats were filled from the time the preliminary card began at 7:30 p.m. , which isn't the case in most cities.

At Wednesday's media availability for UFC 172 in Baltimore, one fighter stood out among the others -- middleweight Luke Rockhold, a guy with a movie star name and looks to match. At times, Rockhold seems to be more of a politician than a fighter, often pointing into the video camera to give his answers, as if he was strumming up votes to run for office as he was discussing his Saturday bout with Tim Boetsch. (It's among the five pay-per-view fights headlined by the lightheavyweight title fight between Jon Jones and Glover Teixeira.)

Mixed martial arts star Jon "Bones" Jones said Friday that he has been told he will headline UFC 172 in Baltimore, raising the possibility of the city's first hosting of a pay-per-view Ultimate Fighting Championship event. In an interview with Fox Sports' Ariel Helwani, Jones, the brother of Ravens defensive end Arthur Jones and UFC's defending light-heavyweight champion, said he would fight next in Baltimore. "My brother's a Raven, so this is going to work out great for me," he said.

Ultimate Fighting Championship will make its Baltimore debut in April with a card headlined by light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. The show, scheduled for April 26 at the Baltimore Arena, is expected to be one of the mixed-martial-arts promotion's biggest pay-per-view events in the first half of the year. It will also rank among the highest-profile sporting events the arena has hosted in recent decades. Jones is arguably UFC's most established star and has ties to the area through his brother Arthur, who just completed his fourth season as a defensive end for the Ravens.

For someone who's considered the best mixed martial arts fighter in the world, Jon Jones sure gets treated like a punching bag outside the Octagon. He's been called out by some of the sport's biggest names. His merits are questioned constantly by fight fans on social media. Even Thursday, before he was set to speak at an Ultimate Fighting Championship news conference in the Warehouse at Camden Yards, fellow fighter Phil Davis flipped over the placard with Jones' name and posed with it in an obvious sign of disrespect.

Spending just a little time around the guys from UFC, you quickly understand that mixed martial arts - and combat sports in general - are not quite set up the same way as your "traditional" sports. If the Orioles want to play in the World Series, they need to make it to the postseason and then win at least two playoff series. They can't just make a bunch of jokes about the Cardinals and expect to see them in the Fall Classic. UFC is set up in a way to showcase the best fighters, of course.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship could have chosen a more traditional location for Saturday's pay-per-view fight, UFC 172. The event features a title defense for Jon Jones, its top pound-for-pound fighter and light-heavyweight champion. But just six years after mixed martial arts were legalized in Maryland, the ever-growing contingent of MMA fans in the region have rewarded UFC president Dana White's faith with a week of frenzied attention for Baltimore's first UFC event and a sold-out fight Saturday at the Baltimore Arena.

Saturday's fight between Joseph Benavidez and Tim Elliott has all the makings of a duel worth watching before the Jon Jones-Glover Teixeira showdown . In one corner you have Benavidez, who's ranked the No. 2 contender in his weight class and eager to rebound after a disappointing first round knockout against current titleholder Demetrious Johnson. In the other corner will be the No. 8 contender, Elliott, whose self described “awkward” style and strong chin make him an intriguing challenger.
