Good Seats or Bad Seats

Hello Everyone,

I'm new here and I just bought some tickets for ufc on fox 2 and I just not noticed that my tickets kindof fall in the direction of one of the pillars of the Octagon. So I'm wondering am I going to be able to see or did I make a mistake in buying these tickets they are 2nd row on the lower level. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

If you just bought tickets for UFC on FOX 2 I think some inconsiderate person has taken advantage of your good natured personality

IF your tickets are for UFC on FOX 3, I wouldn't worry about the pillar at all... First of all they're going to be there no matter which seats you get, and it's very rare that both fighters will be in a position that hides them both from view

I've had a harder time seeing around portly cameramen than pillars myself before.

<<~~ Is a semi portly cameraman, and wonders why anybody wants to see the shows live when you can see so much more on the broadcast!

Heh heh heh- exactly the same experience here.

While I'm glad I went and experienced an event in person, watching MMA in HD on a big screen and being able to pause to go to the can and/or get food/bevvies is, in the words of Bono, even better than the real thing.

And airpower: if you're the kind of fan who appreciates the in-fight commentary, you can usually buy a little radio and ear-piece (I think they were $15) at the venue that broadcasts the event audio.

Agree with others here, going to a live event is a dissapointing outing. No seats are good, really. The octogon is not very condusive to watching live: chainlink fence is not as see-through as a boxing ring, then there are the 8 pillars and then there are the cameramen. I've been and would not pay more than $50 for a UFC event. TV is the best way to view.

A blocked pillar view isn't fun. The camera guys are even worse! On ticketmaster you can see which seats are available. I always recommend elevated seats and in between the pillars.. But thats just me..

Every live fight Ive ever been too at least half the fights ended up behind a pillar some time during the match. It's just the way it is

Do what I did, when the fight goes somewhere where it is impossible to see the action just look up at the big screens that they will have up.
