Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

‘Very Limited Number’ of UFC 83 Tickets Available to General Public

(“The first rule of Fight Club is to screw over as many fans as possible.”)

The UFC had originally planned to offer tickets to UFC 83: “Serra vs. St. Pierre 2″ in three installments — UFC Fight Club members would get the first crack at ‘em on 2/3, newsletter subscribers would get their opportunity today, and the rest would be released to Ticketmaster and the Bell Centre box office this Friday. Well, change of plans. Due to Fight Club members pouncing on the tix like a pack of sex-crazed wolverines, there are only a small amount tickets to the Montreal event remaining, and newsletter subscribers were informed this morning — via newsletter, ironically — that their newsletter-subscriber status don’t mean shit:

Due to incredible demand, nearly all of the tickets to UFC® 83: SERRA vs. ST-PIERRE 2 have been purchased by members of UFC® Fight Club in its exclusive presale which started on Sunday. Over 21,000 people will rock the Bell Centre on Saturday, April 19th, and the vast majority of them will be UFC® Fight Club members. The UFC® organization is honored to welcome so many of its most devoted fans to the event that night.

Because of the unprecedented size of this presale, the normal UFC® Newsletter Presale will not take place. The scheduled public onsale date for this event is this Friday, February 8 at 12pm ET. On that date and time, a very limited number of tickets will be released for sale via Ticketmaster and at the Bell Centre Box Office.

If you’re an average Joe Fanboy with no connections, good luck — eBay scalpers are currently listing the tickets for as much as $2,000 each. May they all get cancer of the A.I.D.S. of the leukemia of the eyes.

You know how bands on tour will sometimes add a concert date if demand in a particular city is especially high? I’m thinking that’s what the UFC should do — a three-night run at the Bell Centre. The entire card would be fought each night, with the fighters who win two out of three in their matchups getting the official “W” on their record. Fans would be treated to standards like “Mac Danzig‘s rear-naked-choke” and “Rich Clementi‘s nuts on opponent’s neck,” but occasionally the fighters would pull out an old, unexpected gem like “Matt Serra beats GSP by TKO.” I’m just spitballing, here — if you have a better idea, do share it.

I dont care much for Bisbing, but i admit i cant wait to see Lutter/Franklin, Danzig, Clementi, Goulet and Coté fight..I dont think it's a bad card, i agree, the card isnt the reason the tickets are sold out, but it didnt hurt. Btw I didnt get tickets and Dana can suck my balls with his fascist ticket selling process.

Can anyone honnestly tell me that a business that pays a one time fee of $75. then purchases approx.320 tickets at regular price and resells them at consumer robbing prices like 2K are all UFC Fight Club members. Reality check!! Bottom line is Vegas has come to Canada and unless you have monies for even the nose bleed sections, you are s--- out of luck.

Whoever thinks this card sucks can suck my big salty balls. If the card sucked so much the Bell Center wouldnt almost be sold out already...
I'm from montreal and I, for one, am pissed that i may not be able to buy tickets cuz all these retards from UFC Fightclub bought them already to sell them on Ebay.

If the only fight on the card was GSP against Serra it would be worth it to me....I want to GSP rip that little troll's head off.....and they should have gave Bisping a better fighter to start with at Middlewieght....Why don't they ever challenge that guy, They are putting guys like him on main card after main card and letting guys like Arloski Walk....I don't get this at all....
Old, Bald and Irish- February 5, 2008 at 7:43 pm
I don't know P.....

I like Lutter. And I really like Danzig a lot. So, IMO, there are at least 3 "decent" matchups.

The rest of the card, I agree, is uninspiring.
p- February 5, 2008 at 7:32 pm
what a SHIT CARD!!!....Just GSP & SERRA are worth seeing the rest are for ultimate fight night on tv. UFC 81 destroyed this...bigger names...nog, sylvia,tyson,mir,etc.

It's all you buddy. use it wisely.
Old, Bald and Irish- February 5, 2008 at 6:42 pm
Turdburglar sez:

"you stink like the inside of a prosthetic leg that was used by a bum"

TB, that's a good one!

The visual and olfactory thoughts are just repulsive.

Mind if I use it? I'll give ya credit......
BIG CHRIS- February 5, 2008 at 6:41 pm
I happen to like CP's point of veiw on this.....I am on the UFC Newsletter mailing list and I saw this and I thought wow how could you do this to your fans, So thank you CP for posting for Mr. Tpyo or whatever I think Old bald and Irish said it all so follow his instructions and you should be ok.....

So let's get this straight, UFC has a program for it's fans called "Fight Club" where you pay $75 and this then allows you to get tickets to fights in advance.. And then those that don't pay up the $75 are SOL and can even get an email enticing them to sign up for Fight Club as, well, those tickets sold out fast for our Fight Club members! Don't you wish you were in Fight Club!? Pay up the $75 already, or no tickets for you, you non-devoted cheapskate of a fan. How convenient for the UFC that they can only sell tickets to those that pay the $75 surcharge.

And MrTypo, we don't appreciate your negativity nor do I appreciate BloodyElbow's ugly site and non-entertaining writing style. puts BloodyElbow in an armbar and a triangle choke at the same time and I'm going to now bookmark it twice just for good measure.

Your astounding insight into MMA will be missed.
you pussy.
you stink like the inside of a prosthetic leg that was used by a bum. You fucking Emerson fan.

At the risk of being accused of being an "internet bully"....

1.) Kindly take off your belt.
2.) Make a loop and hang it over a doorknob.
3.) Stick your head into the loop.
4.) Self asphyxiate yourself.
5.) Blow your load into your own eye and drop dead.

Cage Potato is something you simply don't understand. That something is called "entertaining".

I'm not tryin' to start a fight. I'm just sick of people complaining about stupid stuff like this.

You have a choice. Exercise it.

There are hundreds of other MMA websites. Don't bitch about this one. You don't like the site, pick up your ball and bat and go someplace else.

And for the record: Brock's tattoo is very phalic. I don't know what Brock was thinking when he got that tat, but it probably had something to do with whats between a guys legs......

Typo, thanks you. Thanks *you* for make me dumber after reading your comments on this blog, assbag. Oh and BloodyElbow just called and said you were smart and good looking and successful...
duder- February 5, 2008 at 6:03 pm
I live in Montreal and its tough as shit to get tickets
Dana white- February 5, 2008 at 5:57 pm
UFC fans can suck my dick!
MrTypo- February 5, 2008 at 4:36 pm
WoW fuck Cage potato.

All I can read here is you whinning over and over again the UFC and Dana.

I forget you disrespect fighters with super cool insult over and over again like PENIS TATOO. LMAO that is hilarous,.. lololololol

GG deleted bookmark and I suggest everybody to do the same.

BloodyElbow is much more positive and accurate news.

Thanks you
