Few tickets remain for UFC 232 this Saturday

December 28, 2018

Despite the last-minute change by the UFC, ticket sales for UFC 232 at The Forum in Inglewood have done well.

Per Dana White’s tweet yesterday, he stated that the event was a sellout:

According to a review of Ticketmaster seats on Friday afternoon, the get in price for the event is $76.00 in the upper reaches of the arena.  There is a smattering of tickets on the floor near the cage going for $900.  But the sales have gone well with a limited window for tickets.

SeatGeek, a secondary market ticket broker has seats available for $113 to get in with floor seats going for $398.

In November, Golden Boy MMA held its event at The Forum and drew 7,839 for a gate of $732,288.

The last event at The Forum, UFC 199, drew 15,587 for a total gate of $2,168,675.

Payout Perspective:

The drug test debacle has done nothing to hurt ticket sales for this event.  It also shows that MMA fans are not offended by the Jon Jones USADA issue which says a lot about the state of MMA fandom.  This event should do much better than UFC 199 even with what the UFC says are reduced ticket prices.

Got something to say?
