Bid on UFC83 tickets, you desperate bastards

Am I the only one who thinks it’s a slap in the face that the UFC has decided to release more tickets to UFC83, but is selling them off auction-style? While I understand that capitalism is capitalism and money must be made, I’m still pretty sore over the fact that the event was sold out before tickets officially went on sale to the public (most of them ending up in the hand of cocksuckers who are trying to sell them on stubhub for 3x face value).

Now it looks like rather than figure out some sort of way to keep the remaining tickets out of scalpers’ hands, the UFC has simply decided to become the scalpers themselves: tickets go to the highest bidder, and the bidding starts at 500 bucks. No, this isn’t some kind of charity auction … all the money goes into the UFC’s pockets. As I said, this would be a lot less annoying if the average fan had actually gotten a fucking chance to actually buy normal tickets.

    a buddy of mine who’s been to a lot of live MMA (he crack-addict-like dropped $1300 the day before the first PRIDE in Vegas to get there, despite claiming over and over again that he wouldn’t) told me it’s not even worth going unless you can get pretty close to the cage. any opinion on that?
    any you’re surprised the UFC is a bunch of cocksuckers? They’re businesspeople! For jeebus’ sake, that’s what they do!

    Do you have tix for UFC 83 already?

  • Accomando says:

    Man, all white people do look alike….well, except for franklin, he just looks wierd.

  • I’ll know if I’m going in a week

  • FightStinker is RIGHT! says:

    I will bid a million on the tickets. but make a fake account stating I live in Nigeria.

  • Atom says:

    Franklin does look wierd. I think his neck got longer.

    StubHub has tickets as low as $239, but most are closer to $250-$300, and thats for the 400-level seats.

    Try to get down below the 200 level, and you’re looking at $500+. Pretty crazy for non-floor seats

  • dulljake says:

    forget floor seats. you end up not seeing most of the fight because assholes won’t sit down. You’re better off far with a good angle than close with no angle.

  • Atom says:

    You’re not a tall man, are your Jake?

  • Dukes says:


    I have tix in section 114, row W. I can offer them to you at cost if you want them. Similar tix are going for $800 a piece.

    Let me know…

  • It’s all good … we have a source for tickets but if that doesn’t work out we plan on throwing a big party at a bar down the road instead

  • Gavin says:

    Hey fightlinker are you guys planning on having any events in the days leading up to the 19th? There was some talk about that a while ago on here and I was wondering what came of that.

  • Yep as soon as we know what’s up with our own schedule we’re going to set up a bunch of little events for the average person to get down. There’s a bunch of other bloggers that will be in town and we’re all gonna go get shitfaced!

  • Gavin says:

    Awesome. It’s too bad Chuck Liddell won’t be around to tell us where the afterparty is.

    Gah, I freaking hate Serra. Just look at his pic. GSP better not lay another egg or there will be hell in Canada.
