I'm going to the UFC on Fox 3 show next month just was wondering if anyone knows when the prelim fights start? My ticket says it starts at 4pm and I know it starts on fox at 8 does it really start 4 hours before that? Just want to makesure I get there and get to see all the fights. Also wondering if anyone recomends getting there even earlier then 4?

in my experience, there shouldnt be much of a line getting there that early.

if you intend to souvenir hunt, maybe look for autograph booths & wait in those lines, you might need to get there when the doors open.

Here's what I have learned so far:

ufcfightclub.com membership does work to get you into things before other people like the Weigh in's and octagon nation. BUT you have to be a member and furthermore you have to RSVP from within the site.

Secondly, when at the event they sell those pre-tuned UFC radio's that let you hear Rogan and Goldberg. If you don't get one the silence during the fights sometimes is eeerie ... threw me way off.

I would do as Proz said and go even earlier to meet some fighters.
