Friday, November 15, 2013

Georges St-Pierre is without the doubt the PPV king and also the gate revenue king as his PPV bouts have garned some of the UFC’s largest PPV buys and ticket revenue. UFC 167 is the first time in four years that St-Pierre has headlined a PPV card in Vegas and according Seat Geek, a ticket to the show is hot commodity right now:

At an average ticket price of $580 per ticket, UFC 167 is the most in-demand UFC event in history. Prices on the secondary market are nearly double what they were for UFC 166 in Houston last month, which drew an average resale price of $302 per ticket.

The cheapest tickets available for UFC 167 right now are listed at $299 per ticket for seats in the corner of the 200-level at the MGM Grand, but we’ve seen people pay as much as $2,800 per ticket for floor seats next to the cage.

Before UFC 167, UFC 137 (Penn vs. Diaz) at Mandalay Bay had been the most expensive ticket in UFC history, having drawn an average resale price of $578 per ticket.
