Last week we passed along a bit of news regarding the UFC Fight Club ticket presale for UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" set for Saturday, March 1, 2008, at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
Yesterday the UFC released complete details about how to purchase seats for the monster pay-per-view event.
Here's the skinny:
UFC Fight Club Presale: Thursday, December 27 at 10 a.m. ET
Newsletter Presale: Saturday, December 29 at 10 a.m. ET
General Ticket Sale: Sunday, December 30 at 10 a.m.
Now the usual disclaimer: 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.")
Keep in mind that UFC tix in the past for Ohio events have gone fast -- UFC 68 and UFC 77 were both sold out shows. Therefore, it's more than likely in your best interests to purchase tickets sooner rather than later if you plan to attend this one.
And it's going to be a ridiculous night of fights.
In fact, the main event between UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and Pride FC 183-pound champion, Dan Henderson, is insane. It's certainly going to be among the top match ups of 2008 and could wind up being an instant classic.
Talk about a fantastic showdown. I giggled when I saw the UFC 82 poster in my inbox this morning. Maybe I'm just super gay, but this is one fight that I can't wait to witness with my own eyes.
The rest of the card is shaping up nice with stars such as Jon Fitch, Josh Koscheck and others penciled in to compete in the Buckeye State. Check out the rest of the rumored UFC 82 bouts right here.
