Tickets for the upcoming UFC 246 pay-per-view (PPV) event — set to go down on Jan. 18, 2020, in Las Vegas, Nevada — reportedly sold out in a few minutes according to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president, Dana White, which was good enough to rake in a record gate of $10 million.
And it’s no surprise, really, because the event features the much-anticipated return of the sport’s biggest box office star, Conor McGregor, taking on long-time fan-favorite, Donald Cerrone, in an exciting Welterweight battle.
But for those who didn’t get the chance to score tickets when they went on sale a few weeks ago, you can now hop back on to www.axs.com to scoop some up, as extra seats were recently made available. The prices for those range from $300 all the way up to a staggering $8,000 per pop.
It’s unclear how these tickets became available, but for those questioning a super quick sellout, this tweet from a disappointed man proves that at the time of initial sale all tickets were indeed gone.
Damnit! Tickets sold out to #UFC246 in 3 mins. Even at those crazy prices I was still going to go. now it looks like we’ll be partying at @ScubaTdiving house! I’ll bring the @budweiserusa #WarCowboy pic.twitter.com/R1jFiTorxz— Chris Bohnenkamp (@cb2one4) December 20, 2019
Also, it’s important to note that these aren’t secondary market tickets and prices were not inflated, as www.axs.com is the official site to buy tickets for this event.
UFC 246’s co-main event will feature Holly Holm taking on Raquel Pennington in a women’s Bantamweight rematch, while Anthony Pettis drops back down to Lightweight to face Diego Ferreira.
