Ticket demand high as UFC reports $3M gate ahead of UFC 241

August 16, 2019

UFC 241 this Saturday in Anaheim looks to be a big one as ticket demand for the event is on the rise.  ESPN reporter Brett Okamoto reported that this event will be the first to surpass a $3M gate in the state of California.

The secondary market is hot as well.  According to SeatGeek, as of Wednesday the get-in price for the event is $181 with the average price per ticket on the secondary market at $300.  And don’t look for the ticket prices falling that far either.

Payout Perspective:

This is not surprising for the SoCal market as it’s a very popular place for MMA.  The card is very good considering you get a heavyweight title fight featuring Cormier-Miocic, the return of Nate Diaz to fight Anthony Pettis and then Yoel Romero and undefeated Paulo Costa.  The ticket demand is high compared to last month’s Edmonton event.
