When Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its way into a new market or city or province or country, even, it typically results in a sold out arena with a highly successful gate.
UFC 149: "Aldo vs. Koch," which will go down on Sat., July 21, 2012, at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is no different.
Indeed, tickets for the event have already sold out, just days after becoming available for consumption. In fact, hardly any tickets remained once they went on sale to the general public just yesterday.
It's good news for the UFC, of course, especially considering the main event features a featherweight championship fight pitting an unproven draw in Jose Aldo taking on a fighter, Erik Koch, who has just two Octagon bouts, only one of which occurred on a main televised card.
Hungry Canadians are hungry.
The rest of the card is packed with solid match-ups, too, and you can see the entire fight card, as it stands now, after the jump.
Other scheduled bouts:
185 lbs.: Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch
205 lbs.: Mauricio Rua vs. Thiago Silva
265 lbs.: Cheick Kongo vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
170 lbs.: Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Thiago Alves
