UFC 100 tickets for "Lesnar vs. Mir 2" -- slated for the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 11 -- are set to go on sale TODAY (Saturday, April 11) to the general public at 10 a.m. PT.
There's just one very big problem: The promotion announced that tickets for the historic pay-per-view (PPV) event, which marks a major milestone in its more than 15 years of existence, SOLD OUT in just two days. That's right, UFC Fight Club members and newsletter subscribers apparently gobbled up the stubs in two exclusive presales that led up to today.
It's a new ticket-selling record, according to the promotion.
Here's a snip from company president Dana White:
"I started hearing about UFC 100 around UFC 90. I am blown away by how excited fans were for this event. So I made sure to stack this card with the greatest fights and greatest fighters in the world, and keep ticket prices consistent with our other big events. Once again, our fans responded with a record sellout. This is another great milestone for the UFC, and July 11 is going to be an amazing event."
The good news?
UFC 100 tickets can be purchased through StubHub.com (Note: StubHub often has seats available even if the event is "sold out"). It will also be available to watch on pay-per-view (PPV) at 10 p.m. ET on fight night.
UFC 100 features two major title fights: Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir will tangle to declare an undisputed division champion and Georges St. Pierre will once again defend his 170-pound strap against number one contender, Thiago Alves.
In addition, The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) TUF 9 coaches, Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping, are slated to meet and determine who earns the right to challenge the reigning middleweight champion later in 2009.
