UFC 129 Sells Out in One Day Before Tickets Go On General Sale

(Even the cornermen are considering scalping their passes for this one.)

CP 24 is reporting that just over three hour after tickets went on sale Thursday for UFC 129 – Zuffa’s landmark first show in Ontario, fans snapped up each of the 42,000 tickets, prompting the promotion to open up more seats for the Rogers Centre show to ensure that there are tickets available to the plethora of fans waiting for Friday’s UFC newsletter pre-sale and Saturday’s general sale. Although the UFC’s director of Canadian Operations, Tom Wright selling 50,000 seats for the April 30 event, which will feature a pair of championship bouts, may be “pushing it,” judging by the response, the event could very well exceed the WWE’s record attendance mark for the venue of just south of 68,000.

Each of the fans who bought ticket today forked out $90 to join the UFC Fight Club, making them eligible to jump the line to reserve their seats for the show. Tickets for the event ranged from $50 to $800 CDN.

Scalpers wasted no time in advertising their golden tickets. Ads began popping up on StubHub, Craigslist and it’s Canadian equivalent buy and sell website, Kijiji, within an hour of tickets going on sale at 10:00 am today.The highest price advertised for a single ticket was $2500, and they are sure to increase exponentially as the event draws nearer.

We will be hosting a booth at the UFC’s Fan Expo that weekend and have applied for media credentials for this event, but we’ll probably be on the outside looking in come April 30.

This will not be a snoozer. Gsp started as a kick boxer and shields has nothing for him on the feet. I'm thinking a 3rd round ko
NutKick- February 11, 2011 at 9:19 am
If this goes down anything like UFC 115 in Vancouver. There is a huge ticket price bubble building and will pop about a week before the show, Fucking over all those greedy scalpers.

So cage potato is pretty much banned for life from any major ufc event? That sucks big time is there anyway you guys can send the bald one a fruit basket or pink berry gift card? I think you all need a little Italy style sit-down. Old dad can mediate.

@LaWeapon Says

But if they limit the amount of tickets to the fight club members they wont be able to cash in on the extra $90 that most of these people had to pay to bag an early ticket!

It's all about the money regardless of what Dana says!
LaWeapon- February 11, 2011 at 4:39 am
I say they should limit the amount of tickets for UFC fan club members. All the tickets are sold, and the general public didn't even have a chance to buy any yet. Out of the 42,000 tickets sold how many will end up on ebay, 25,000 probably.
AussieJosh- February 11, 2011 at 3:43 am
This and the Australian market just goes to show the UFC needs to do less shows in Vages and more out side of the states, the Candian market and the aussie sell out the shows in record time, even London does not sell out quickly or at all.... More cards in Australia and Canada i say!

For all the haters.

I for one enjoy Jake Shield's and am very much looking forward to the fight, be it a KO of shield's or a technical grappling match on the ground. I watch MMA to see one person beating another person. Pure-unchecked physical combat. It doesn't have to look likeaction movies because we all know action movies are full of crap. I want to see two guys trying their best to win at all costs. If Sheild's were in against anyone with inferior ground defence he would end them extremely quickly. To see two technicians match wits and styles for physical dominance is pure. You can take your ignorance and ADHD attention spans and go back to watching action movies where the fights are all on the feet and end by flying roundhouse kick knockout. I'll be watching the art of REAL fights by REAL fighters engaged in a desperate struggle for, what is just short of, their lives: as best and most effectively as they can.

fight of the night will be bocek vs henderson. hope gsp fight ends in a finish but im not gonna hold my breath. not being a hater just sayin

GSP 3rd round tko, hominick ko'd in the 1st round from leg kicks, carried out on a stretcher where he dies in the waiting room from internal bleeding at the local hospital.
Ballkick- February 10, 2011 at 10:17 pm
I see a facial fracture in Jake Sheilds future,.....I'll bet he goes for a takedown in the first 60 seconds of the first round,.... Gets stuffed,..... and then gets his ass handed to him standing up,...GSP first round TKO.
Homie Homminick got his work cut out for himself tho. That scrap could be very exciting,.....or a bad night for the Canadian.
Crusader982- February 10, 2011 at 8:50 pm
Even if the GSP v Shields fight is a snoozefest. Having Aldo on the card makes this very worth watching.
SouthpawGrammar- February 10, 2011 at 7:55 pm

Best run-on sentence. EVA!
