UFC Ultimate Fighting Championship News - 2013 UFC Updates
The most expensive Ultimate Fighting Championship tickets this year were UFC 160 tickets averaging $1006 to watch Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2. UFC 162 tickets
brought in more than $4.8 million of revenue with an average ticket price of $735 to see Chris Weidman take the middleweight title away from Anderson Silva. Both fights took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
UFC 168 tickets
are expected to reach an all-time high in price due to the fact that the event is the most anticipated rematch in MMA history. Anderson Silva vs. Chris Weidman II is set for December 28 at the coveted MGM Grand Hotel Garden Arena in Vegas. Silva is the odds-on favorite despite “The Spiders” loss to Weidman at UFC 162. Weidman will look to prove that his second round TKO to upset perhaps the greatest MMA fighter in the sport’s history was no fluke. Silva would like to reclaim his UFC middleweight title, one he had held for almost seven years.
To give you a good idea of just how high in demand UFC 160 & 162 tickets
were, consider this: UFC on Fox Sports 1 tickets at TD Garden average $190, UFC on Fox Sports 2 tickets at Bankers Life Fieldhouse average $235, UFC 164 tickets at Bradley Center average $293, and UFC 165 tickets at Air Canada Centre average $323 on the resale market.
