Tickets for UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" will go on sale next week for the pay-per-view (PPV) event that is set to take place LIVE from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, on March 1, 2008.
UFC Fight Club members will have the first crack at seats on Thursday, December 27 at 10 a.m. ET. We'll pass along another update when we know for sure when tickets for UFC email newsletter subscribers and the general public will be available.
As usual, UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" tickets will be available for purchase through Ticketmaster.com or StubHub.com. (Note: StubHub often has seats available even if the event is "sold out.")
The second-ever UFC event to take place in Columbus will feature the 185-pound title bout between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Dan Henderson.
"Dangerous" Dan is/was the Pride FC welterweight (183 pounds) king prior to returning to the Octagon earlier this year.
Therefore, this will serve as the second consecutive "unofficial" unification bout for Henderson (also the most recent Pride FC 205-pound champ) -- he lost to UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, earlier this year at UFC 75: "Champion vs. Champion."
We'll share more on tickets and other match ups on this card soon. In the meantime, check out the rest of the rumored UFC 82 fight card right here.
