PORTLAND, Ore. – One of the prevailing story lines surrounding Saturday's UFC 102 in Portland, Ore., was the slower-than-expected ticket sales for the UFC's debut in the Pacific Northwest.

In the end, the event attracted more than 16,000 fans for a $1.92 million gate – a figure White was told by officials ranked among the top-five gates ever at the Rose Garden.

But for a company that's used to jaw-dropping, record-setting attendance marks, the figures were a slight disappointment. Following the event, UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that he felt his company dropped the ball by over-pricing tickets in the struggling Portland market.

UFC tickets are always priced way too high, to get a decent seat costs hundreds. You may as well watch on TV.
I would like to go to an event one day but I hope they re evaluate their ticket values after this.

Outside of Vegas, the ticket prices are generally pretty reasonable...400-600 for floor seats is not bad IMO. And some people prefer to be just off the floor, which are usually only 200-300.

Yeah they are way expensive, I bought some at $60...more than the PPV and the seats were so high that I spent the whole night watching the big screen. I won't ever go to one again unless I start rolling in the $$
