Tickets prices will range from $300-$800 on the floor and from $50-$225 in the stands. They can be purchased at the Rogers Centre box office or through Ticketmaster and Stubhub. Dana White stressed to not buy tickets from ticket brokers (such as Stubhub) before the on-sale date.
“Please let all the fans know not to buy any tickets to UFC 129 until the official on-sale date,” White said. “The same thing goes for the UFC Fight Night event in Seattle. We haven’t started selling tickets to either on of these events, but there are already brokers trying to pre-sell seats. Please don’t buy these because there is simply no way to guarantee you’ll actually receive authentic tickets.”
