UFC 85 TicketsTickets for UFC 85 at the O2 Arena on Saturday, June 7, will be available to purchase during an exclusive presale that begins this upcoming Sunday (March 2).

The 205-pound showdown between superstars, Chuck Liddell and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, is slated to headline the second event for the promotion in the United Kingdom in 2008.

Here are all the particulars:

UFC Fight Club presale: Sunday, March 2 at 5 a.m. ET (10 a.m. GMT)
UFC Newsletter presale: Wednesday, March 5 at 5 a.m. ET (10 a.m. GMT)
General ticket sale: Friday, March 7 at 5 a.m. ET (10 a.m. GMT)

UFC 85 tickets can be purchased through or
(Note: StubHub often has seats available even if the event is "sold out.")

Heavyweights Brandon Vera and Fabricio Werdum are expected to clash on the card and there's speculation that Brock Lesnar will also be competing that same evening to capitalize on his WWE fame overseas.

However, this is scheduled as an "international event" that will air at 3 p.m. ET. Other events are categorized as "PPV Live" or "UFC Fight Night." Therefore, it's unknown at this time if the show will be FREE on television (SpikeTV or some other possible new partner that is yet to be revealed) or if it will be a PPV event.

With Liddell already on the card and possibly Lesnar -- two huge PPV draws -- it's hard to imagine this being a FREE fight night. Time will tell.

Remember also that a fight between welterweights Mike Swick and Marcus Davis is in the works, meaning that this is already shaping up to be a great night (or afternoon) of solid mixed martial arts (MMA) action.

Feel free to check out the rest of the rumored line up right here.
