Since GSP vs Silva - the fight I've been waiting for years - seems to finally happen, I'm getting pumped up already about being there. I've never been to a UFC event, and getting tickets to hot bouts seems to be a bit of a mess.
I'd like to get good seats; I'll be traveling halfway across the world regardless of which of the three potential places the fight takes place, so might as well go all the way. But I'd of course prefer not to rely on scalpers due to cost and in case something goes wrong. I live in Europe, and I'm not even sure if Ticketmaster or whatever service they use sells to people outside the country.
I understand that UFC Fight Club (or whatever it is called) members get a few days of head start on buying tickets - but that costs quite a bit of money per year. Is that the most reliable way to get good seats?
Yah the UFC members get priority then it goes public on Ticket Masters which means you'll have to compete with thousands of fans, brokerage firms, and scalpers even though the maximum is eight tickets. But there's ways around that. Before you know it tickets will be inflated on Craiglist or E-bay.
btw: I just noticed you're flying all the way out from Europe! True fan!
