Dana White Says UFC 154 Tickets Are Selling Well
White reveals that UFC 154 has already registered a $3.1 million live gate
White also is positive that event will reach or surpass the previous UFC shows, that were held in Canada.
“We’re still a week and a half out,” White said during a UFC 154 media call
“I heard rumblings about this gate not doing well and Georges St-Pierre not selling out (the event). We’re at $3.1 million right now.”
“I wouldn’t say the gate sucks. The biggest gate you can do there is $4 million, which is what we did last time with Georges St-Pierre.”
White also admits that the tickets are overpriced. The ticket prices for UFC 154 range from $90 to $625.
“Yeah, maybe we did overprice this one a bit much, but times are tough out there. We’ll see what happens. As we get closer to the event, we’ll see how it goes. But the gate, it’s one of the top gates of the year with $3.1 million.” White adds.
“UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit” is set to take place this November 17 at Montreal’s Bell Centre.View Article Source »
