Assuming Dana White's message on Twitter is correct, UFC 115 in Vancouver has already sold out. Fight Club members not only bought all the available tickets on the first day they could, they got them all in only 30 minutes. If this proves true, it will be the fastest UFC sellout ever-the previous record holder was UFC 83, which sold out less than a minute into the general public on-sale date.

Not to mention you've almost got to have a Fight Club membership to even have a chance at tickets outside of StubHub.

Yeah but I was like 90% of the way to booking tickets to Montreal once I heard it wasn't coming to Vancouver

Its strange because a month ago u could get front row lowers to the Montreal card for 4 bills each, and that card is wayyyy more stacked than the vancouver one

Oh wells... guess I'm stayin in Van lol

edit: just bought my tickets... paid the same amount that it would've cost me to fly to montreal lol

and i have two of them!

I'd like to go to the Vancouver one and see Cro Cop but I'd rather watch Shogun beat Machida around the Octagon.

it's too bad that a ton of those tickets will be sold at 2x or 3x the price on a partner site, there really needs to be a better way to make it fair for everyone. sure you can only get 8 tickets with fight club memberships, but how do we cut down on who gets memberships? i duno what's gotta happen but it's really too bad that it comes to this, i'll never buy a ticket from stubhub ever again, i feel for the guys and girls who didn't get their tickets from ufc directly and instead have to support these jerkoffs...

in any event, people are actually surprised that this sold out so fast? mma in canada is a monster hit, regardless of how many people bought tickets just to make money off honest, loyal fans. it's damn impressive that canadians stepped up immedietly, despite that last disappointing main event. once ontario gets notice of this, there'll be at least 2 events in canada per year, lovin it!

Whenever I go to BCS games I use stubhub and I have never been disappointed. Can't say I've ever tried to purchase tickets to a UFC event, though. I'm sure it's probably absurd.

i highly doubt it
there is a way on the fight membership for ufc to find out how many are going
the most i ever saw was for ufc 100
but to sell out this fast unless every fight member who bought tickets bout like 30 each with the cap 6 i find it hard to believe
sucks though,
that is one reason why no matter where my ass is work, out and about
at 10 am my butt is on the computer buying my ticket
alot of people are ready booked flights and hotels and now are with out a ticket
sucks for them
i hate stub hub and scalpers trying to make a buck when fans are gonna see it live

i wish the ufc would make it a less cap of tickets to buy and only a one time buy not going in and buying then jumping back on ticket master over and over again buying 100 tickets

I feel for those people but by now they should have learned not to reserve any kind of accommodations until they actually have a ticket... to me it's common sense
