UFC 84-MGM Grand Garden Arena-Best Seats for the $$$???

UFC Fight Club pre-sale kicks off in 2 days for UFC 84 and I have no clue what would be a good section to sit in...

Can anyone who has ever been to a UFC event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena tell me where the best sections to sit (for the $) would be?

I'm planning buying mid-range ($200-$300) tickets and I would prefer to sit along the rail by where the fighters come out so I have a good chance of getting on camera but I have no clue as to what section that would be....

Can someone help a brother out?

The only problem is that when you buy tickets from ticketmaster you cannot speicify the exact seat you want just the price level. For along the rail seats, your looking at the lower level area, but again it's completley random when you purchase them. I have been to a few events there, and my advice is just buy the "best available" in your price range, try to get them as early as possible. Or if you really want that section your going to have to buy from a reseller, but expect to pay around twice the face value.

Call them and they will be able to sit you where you want, if you have the money. When I was looking for tix for UFC 79 at Mandalay bay $300 would get you front row... of the f-ing nose bleeds..... I watched Casamayor vs Corrales Mandalay Bay in '06 my nosebleeds were $30! I only went to watch my friend Glenn Donaire fight. We had 4 rooms at MB and they were all very nice, nice casino.

good luck finding any good seats for $300.

"Best available" always scares me because you have no idea what you're actually getting.....

Does anyone else have any other experiences buying tickets for a UFC event at the MGM Grand? I'm curious as to what people have done to find rail seats....

They're probably not worth paying double $ for -- so, if someone has any tricks up their sleeve, any input would be appreciated.

Thanks again!

You preview the tickets before you buy them, they tell you the exact seats on Ticketmaster.

If you can get front row balcony, those are great seats. Anything lower level is great, I prefer the corners. Be very careful, you don't want to sit straight on in the lower level..the fucking camermen will be in your way the whole fucking time.

I've heard Stub-Hub might be a good way to go.

Sucks that all the Vegas UFCs cost a grip to get tickets
