UFC Fight Night Dublin sells out immediately

This is the most hype I've seen for a Fight Night card. A fighter who headlines and single handedly sells out an entire card GSP style. Pretty rare.

Lets see if Connor can deliver now. Endless number of fighters await him when he passes this test.

- The Bronx
- BJ
- Edgar
- Poirier
- Cub
- Zombie
- Lamas
- Mendez

And just like that tickets to UFC Fight Night Dublin are sold out.

According to a UFC official, tickets to the July 19 event were officially snatched up Friday morning. An allotment of tickets went on sale to UFC Fight Club members on Wednesday and newsletter subscribers on Thursday. Once the rest of the tickets were made available to the general public on Friday, they officially sold out in a matter of minutes.

UFC Fight Night 46, headlined by Dublin's Conor McGregor vs. Diego Brandao, will take place at The O2 Arena, which holds approximately 8,000 fans for an MMA event.

"The UFC is delighted to have sold out its eagerly anticipated return to Dublin on July 19th," a UFC official said. "All tickets were sold within the first couple of hours. There are a limited amount of VIP packages available here."

This event will mark the first time the UFC holds an event in Dublin since UFC 93 in Jan. 2009. Since then, Irish MMA fans have been anxiously awaiting the promotion's return, and once McGregor was signed last year and proved to be a draw, the wheels were set in motion.

In fact, McGregor promised in his very first interview on The MMA Hour that he would be responsible for the UFC's return to Ireland, and he was right. He's also responsible for Friday's quick sellout.

A number of my mates were trying to get tickets and could not. And they were ready and waiting as soon as they went on sale. Could have probably sold this event twice over pretty easy.

This has happened before. Tell them that the UFC might release more tickets the week of or days before the event.

Be on the look out for ads for people who can't make it to the show for some inexplicable reason. Happens from time to time and might get lucky with a few tix. Otherwise a night out at the local bar would be an alternative spending at the bar and some good eats.

Interestingly and humorously Conor bet Dana a title fight that this would be the fastest selling card in history

I didn't get tickets in the end because I was looking for a better main event that McGregor and Miller.

The more the card came together though, the more I wish I was going.

Conor McGregor - BIG fan since I saw him on Cage Warriors. Tried to interview him for MMAF before he signed to UFC.

Diego Brandao - Used to be a big fan after TUF. Everything surrounding his Poirier fight made me dislike him though.

Gunnar Nelson - Along with McGregor, was in my 2013 sig list. Awesome fighter.

Zak Cummings - Been a fan since his one punch KO in TUF prelims.

Brad Pickett - Who doesn't like Brad Pickett?

Neil Seery - For his awesome fight with the above, I'm a fan.

Norman Parke - Bullshit loss in last fight. One of the best to come from TUF in AGES.

I'd love to see a Norman Parke-Conor McGregor fight.
