Do you have problems over there with 3rd parties buying up chunks of tickets then selling them for triple their face value online?

Come to think of it the millennium stadium in Cardiff would be perfect - close proximity, unbelievable stadium and has a roof!

Fair point and I really hope it happens. I just see the ufc as being a little more cautious. The only outdoor event was Abu Dhabi right? Maybe it'll take some serious fan complaints bit I'm not holding my breath.

I don't think you can say they would never put on an outdoor event in Europe, and weather would be the reason. Both boxing and WWE have done multiple event sin outdoor stadia. Look at the recent Froch/Grove fight at wembley.

I got 3 tickets and realise how lucky I am given the demand. In Ireland we will perpetually have this issue due to indoor arena size limitations.We have some fantastic Stadiums - Thomand, Croker , Aviva but the UFC will never ever ever put an outdoor event on in Ireland or probably Europe for that matter. Anyone who thinks they they would is delusional. The risk with weather is far too great.So unfortunately an event in Dublin is always going to carry this crazy demand. The tickets were gone in 30 seconds - both on the presale day and the general sale yesterday. Crazy stuff.
