UFC 172 tickets in demand based on resale market

April 24, 2014

According to SeatGeek, the UFC 172 average ticket price on the resale market is $290 which makes it the most expensive event recorded at the Baltimore Arena since 2009 according to the ticket search engine.  The ticket prices are up 12% on average from UFC 171.

The tickets on the secondary market for UFC 171 averaged $258.  UFC 172 is the most “in-demand UFC event since UFC 168 in December” according to SeatGeek.  The resale value for 168 was at an astronomical $536 per ticket average.

Jon Jones’ last fight at UFC 165 in Toronto was less expensive as the resale value for those tickets were $212 per ticket.

Ticketmaster still has seats available including floor seats priced at $387 without tax and other fees.  There are upper-level tickets on the secondary market at $99 per ticket (originally $91 face).

Payout Perspective:

The secondary market is one of the many indicators gaging interest in an event.  Does the demand show that Jones is a draw or that Baltimore fans want to see the UFC?  At this point, the only tickets still available via Ticketmaster appear to those over $370. So, you will still be paying a hefty sum if you want some premium seats at UFC 172.

    The secondary ticket market is completly controlled by the promoter and ticket agents. Its a false guide to actual revenue of an event. Also asking prices and actual selling prices are not reported, also the number of tickets that the agents don’t sell is not reported. In other words its total BS
