Other sites are saying that the Ufc has booked a date in Nov, (in anticipation of MMA legalization)

If the first fight was Nov 12, we are looking at Nov 9 or Nov 16..

Obviously being the first card in NY the prices are going to be well out of the range of the casual fan, likely topping the Ufc 100 and Ufc 148 price ranges ($125- $1200)

Ufc 100 had a gate of $5.13 mil for 10,871 ($471 avg ticket price)

Ufc 129 had a gate of $12.075 for 55,724 ($216 avg ticket price)

Ufc 148 had a gate of $6.90 mil for 13,606 ($507 avg ticket price)

The capacity at MSG is listed as 20,789 for boxing...Ufc would be similar unless the screens and rigging take up more sections,

If we are thinking a GSP vs Silva or a Jones vs Silva, (either would get 55,000 in Toronto or close to that in Dallas) the price avg in New York would probably be north of $600 (Ufc 148 the most recent comparison, add a room in New York and wow!!
