Tickets for UFC Fight Night 14, which was announced and put together in record time, will be available to purchase during an exclusive presale that begins at 1 p.m. ET today (Friday, June 20) for the July 19 event at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva will take on James Irvin in a light heavyweight showdown slated for the main event. No title will be at stake -- "The Spider" is merely testing the 205-pound waters since he has all but cleared out the 185-pound division.
Here are the UFC Fight Night 14 tickets sale details:
UFC Fight Club presale: Friday, June 20 at 1 p.m. ET
General ticket sale: Saturday, June 21 at 4 p.m. ET
(UFC Fight Night 14 tickets can be purchased through StubHub.com. Note: StubHub often has seats available even if the event is "sold out").
There is likely no newsletter presale because of the abbreviated time to market the Spike TV special. The promotion worked its magic to put together a card on super short notice to counter the debut of Affliction: "Banned" on pay-per-view (PPV) the same night.
It's perhaps a blow to the upstart organization but a boon to MMA fans -- get those DVRs programmed sooner rather than later.
In addition to the bout between Silva and Irvin, lightweights Frank Edgar and Hermes Franca will go to war on the televised main card, as well as light heavyweights Brandon Vera and Reese Andy. It should be a good show made even better by the fact that it's free.
