Dave Meltzer via Wrestling Observer (subscription required):

We don’t have a number for 1/19 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but it’s not close to sold out nor very big. That surprises me since it’s the first time UFC has been in that city, and even though it’s a weak card (Michael Bisping vs. Vitor Belfort on top with nothing else star power wise on the show other than Daniel Sarafian who came off TUF Brazil), I’d have thought first time in Sao Paulo would be an immediate sellout. The 11,000-seat arena is less than half sold with less than two weeks to go.

Oversaturated and a super weak card.

Hmm. You would think Vitor could sell. That's not a good sign in a "growing" market.

It sounds like the ticket prices are too high according to the comments on BE.

I think so too. I have family in São Paulo and they wanted to go, but the tickets were way to high for even cheap seats. Phone Post

This is what happens when the UFC tries to fit 4 pounds of shit into a two pound bag. For this event, tickets should be 250-300 for cageside, not nosebleeds. Keep screwing your fans by overpricing events and we'll see how big the "fastest growing sport" in the world goes. I know us here in Canada have dropped off significantly in the last two years.

That's a weak card... You can't just rely on Belfort to be able to sell tickets. Phone Post
