Great news for MMA fanatics in Southwestern Ontario! It was announced yesterday that the Rogers Center, home of UFC 129, will be set up to hold 42,000 screaming fight fans for the promotion’s inaugural show in Ontario. Tickets are set to go on sale through Ticketmaster for the general public February 12th at 10AM ET unless you are a UFC Fight Club member, in which case you get a two-day head start beginning Thursday Feb 10th at 10AM ET. A seat in the stands will range from $50-$225 and floor level tickets will begin at $300 and top out at $800. |
There has been a lot of humming and hawing in the local media about what you get for your money, after all the octagon is only thirty or so feet from end to end. The UFC made sure to add that they are “working on specialized fan zones and other unique features” which we can assume is to entertain all those people in between fights and during stretches at this nearly 5 hour long event. If the price is still an issue, another selling point is the sheer immensity of this event in the history of the sport and the great talent you will be entertained by for your hard earned money.
A live MMA event is truly something everyone must experience at least once in a lifetime. The electricity of the crowd alone will keep you on the edge of your seat and get your adrenaline pumping. As with most live sporting events, the further you are away from the action, the rowdier the crowd usually gets so expect a great time regardless of where you are sitting. Also don’t forget, there is always the Jumbotron for the bone crunching replays.
When George St-Pierre defeated Josh Koscheck at UFC 124 in Montreal, it was so loud I couldn’t concentrate enough to finish typing my sentence. Now double that and hopefully each ticket will come with a set of UFC branded earplugs. The Rogers Center will not have been this noisy since the Blue Jays won the 1993 World Series Championship, and if St-Pierre pulls off the win at UFC 129 it might even be louder.
Is the experience and environment enough to convince you to get a ticket? If so, look no further than the stacked card the UFC is going to be putting on April 30th. A rumored 12 fights stacked with Canadian talent are slated to take place, that’s 7 more than you would get if you simply paid $60 to watch it on Pay-Per-View. The event its-self is headlined by four huge fights that include two title defenses:
here ya go bosss
