just ran n the ufc site looking to pay 400 to 500 for lower level seats saw that it was 800 dollars for the seats as well as the same price for floor seats. upper level will cost 300 dollars and 500 dollars for the corners to watch the fight. that is a huge increase in money considering how much the cincy, anaheim and nj fights are. or is it just vegas?? let me know, i want good seats but i am not gonna pay 800 dollars for lower level seats the same seats i had in anaheim for 400 dollars.


are the tickets getting to high in cost??
or is it worth the money given the fact that they come out this sunday and all we know is the hughes vs serra fight the lidell and bj penn fight are not etched in stone and might change to jan or feb cards

Vegas shows are always more. This might be an increase due to the fact that it is the new years show and it is a great card. Is it worth it? thats up to you.

If Wandy and Chuck is confirmed then you have two of the biggest fights in MMA so it would be worth it for the price even though 800 is a lot of money. I only spent 300 on my ticket to 78 and i got decent seat but the card is pretty bad.

UFC is in high demand right now so it's not a shock to see the price for tickets increase.

High demand & low supply = high prices. Economics class is over, now get back to work

supply and demand

It will be the best ever card (yes even better than stacked! lol) and they will have zero problems selling all the tickets at those prices

on another site advertising the event, it says tickets go upto $1000 for ringside seats. this card better have bj/sherk, hughes/serra and chuck/wandy to warrant that asking price!!

Ha, if they had that card they would have to change if from:

UFC 79 - Nemesis

To:

UFC 79 - You'll never see another fight card this stacked, and if you miss this event you are an absolute dipsh*t

I wouldn't even fork out 300$ for any event (low level seats)


And I thought Leaf tickets were overpriced.

Supply and demand, man! How long have we all waited for Chuck/Wandy? How many people have anticipated that for years? If it's Chuck/Wandy, Serra/Hughes, and at least one other big fight.... I think it will sell out faster than any other event no matter how much the tickets cost. You gotta figure, you'd be getting to watch 3 UFC events all in one night. They could easily add another event just for the Chuck/Wandy fight.
