UFC 72: Not a hot ticket in Belfast

Tickets for UFC 72: "Victory" are still available for the first ever show in Belfast northern Ireland that will be televised today on pay-per-view at 3 p.m. ET/noon PT, according to the Canadian Press.

It will be the first non-sellout, according to UFC President Dana White, in a long time.

Here's a snip from White:

"It's part of our expansion movement into other countries. We're going to take some on the chin. You have to be willing to do that to grow the business. I mean look how long it took us in the United States."

FightNetwork.com radio is also reporting that the UFC is actually giving out comp tickets to fill seats and draw interest among Irish fans.

The Odyssey Arena is the biggest indoor stadium in Ireland, holding about 10,000 at full capacity. That means there are probably quite a few free tickets to be had.

Goddamn luck of the Irish.
