The records will fall at Saturday's UFC 124 event.
During today's pre-event press conference, UFC president Dana White said both the North American MMA attendance and worldwide MMA gate records will be broken with the show.
The UFC boss said Montreal's Bell Centre will draw more than 23,000 fans and produce a gate of more than $5 million for the heavily anticipated show.
Both marks also will break the UFC's current records. They're currently held by UFC 97 in Montreal (21,451 attendees) and UFC 66 in Las Vegas ($5,397,300 live gate).
