All you need to know about getting those precious Aldo vs McGregor tickets.
UFC 189 takes place in the MGM Grand this coming July with Dubliner Conor McGregor looking to claim UFC gold from Brazilian featherweight champion, Jose Aldo.
With many travelling fans from Ireland having booked flights and accommodation for ‘sin city’ this summer, UFC officials have today confirmed the dates that fight fans can look to purchase their tickets.
UFC Fight Club members get access to pre-sale tickets on Wednesday March 25th at 6pm Irish time.
UFC Newsletter subscribers get access to tickets the following day while general sale goes live on that Thursday.
It is rare enough for events to go on sale 4 months prior to the event and it is yet unclear as to how much tickets for various sections will cost.
An educated guess would ticket prices imitate those of UFC 187 which also takes place in the MGM Grand this May. Ticket prices range from $148-$1,045. Be aware that the Euro is not particularly strong against the dollar (currently trading at €1 – $1.13) and that those purchasing tickets will be going through the US Ticketmaster rather than the Irish version.
Tickets may go quite quickly given that Canadian fans tend to travel well to cheer on their fighters. With Canadian Rory MacDonald added to the card to take on Robbie Lawler for the UFC welterweight belt, tickets may come at a premium.
