UFC 70: Get more tickets

It appears that English fight fans are jonesing for their first UFC fix in five years, gobbling up so many tickets for UFC 70: "Nations Collide" that the UFC decided to release more, according to the promotion's official Web site.

Here's a snip:

"... due to stunning public demand a limited number of additional tickets have been released for UFC 70 at the MEN Arena, Manchester, England on April 21. With over 5,000 tickets sold during pre-sale, the original remaining seats to the UFC's first UK supershow since 2002 were snapped up almost as soon as they were released."

Mix in the fact that the UFC 70 fight card is loaded with international superstars, and it's rather obvious the reasons that seats are not only in demand, but selling fast.

According to the announcement, the UFC and MEN representatives "went to great lengths" to accommodate the arena for the new — and apparently affordable — seats.

On the heels of news that UFC 70 will "most likely" be aired on SpikeTV for free — and not on HBO or pay-per-view (PPV) — one has to wonder if this is also designed to squeeze a little more out of this event at the gate.

Regardless, it's a good show and now more fans — in England and at home — get to enjoy it.

Sounds like a pretty swell deal.
