UFC Fight Night Events

as just announced UFC will be returning to Cincinnati for Fight Night 40 on May 10th... and I've never seen an event live. tickets don't go on sale until March 21st, but I was wondering what type of dough I need to be saving up.

anyone have a ballpark figure on mid-range tickets to a type of event like this?

thanks

For tickets your looking at about 100-150$ a piece to have decent to good seats. Beer will probably be 8.50$ and up.

Mid range tends to be $150. Might be lower for a Fight Night though, I only know the PPV ones, but it could also be higher. Seems to depend on how big the card actually is.

Honestly though, I'm a big fan of the nosebleeds. You get to sit higher up and look down into the cage, instead of looking through the cage/cameramen. And you're going to watch the monitor for parts of the fights no matter where you sit so you might as well save some money. Plus the atmosphere is best there and that's where the buzz of the events comes from. Really depends on personal opinion though and what you're looking for when you go.

If you can afford it I would go for floor seats. I've done both that and also have been up in the cheap seats. Don't get me wrong the atmosphere will still be awesome wherever you are but actually being able to watch the fights without checking a big screen to know what was going on made it a lot better for me.
