UFC 83 Card Announced; Tickets Moving Like Les Pâtisseries Chaude

(Poutine: French for “Devil’s Diarrhea.”)

In a press conference held yesterday at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Dana White confirmed that Patrick “The Predator” Cote will be joining the card of UFC 83 — currently titled “Serra vs. St. Pierre 2″ — against an opponent to be named later. With Cote’s addition, the official UFC 83 lineup looks like this:

Matt Serra vs. Georges St. Pierre (welterweight championship match)
Travis Lutter vs. Rich Franklin (middleweights)
Charles McCarthy vs. Michael Bisping (middleweights)
Nate Quarry vs. Kalib Starnes (middleweights)
Mark Bocek vs. Mac Danzig (lightweights)

Ed Herman vs. Demian Maia (middleweights)
Joe Doerksen vs. Jason MacDonald (middleweights)
Rich Clementi vs. Sam Stout (lightweights)
Kuniyoshi Hironaka vs. Jonathan Goulet (welterweights)
Patrick Cote vs. TBA (middleweights)

Out of the 19 (so far) scheduled fighters, eight are Canadian — St. Pierre, Starnes, Bocek, Doerksen, MacDonald, Stout, Goulet, and Cote. And man that’s a lot of 185-pounders. Unfortunately, many Canuck fight fans might be left out in the cold. As of yesterday, UFC Fight Club members had already purchased more than 13,000 tickets in the 21,273-seat Bell Centre; tickets don’t go on sale to the general public until Thursday. Maybe there will be some seats left in the nosebleeds by then, but if you’re planning on attending, there may be a scalper in your future.

I was shocked when I say the prices. I know a lot of people who were planning to go to the event decide to not after they saw the prices as well. Kinda sucks for ppl who are from Montreal, even in out own city and we get screwd for tickets. Oh well, PPV it is.

fucking nosebleed tickets are still gonna be 50$... if I get to buy it before they make their way to some scalper...

For that price, I'll watch it at home, with real beer that won't cost me 9$.
