Tickets for UFC in Chicago

I've heard a lot of people complaining about tickets being really expensive and that they still have thousands of unsold tickets... I am confused because I got tickets on Row 9 in the 100 level, so basically 9 rows off the floor and they were $140/each which I thought was pretty unreal because tickets for UFC 129 were $300 and we were in Row 1 in the 100 level...

Last UFC in Chicago was Johnson vs Dodson which was a little more stacked but the crowd was fairly full so I don't understand why their having so much trouble selling tickets this time

The card itself isn't really exciting and the more notable name on the card is Bendo. Plus no title is on the line which is definitely a factor.

Also it could be people in the area are just casual MMA fans and would much rather watch it on TV.

eBay Store.

PM for discounts.

It's the fact that there is no title.

My first live fight was the Fox Chael/Shogun in Boston and my second is Barao/Faber. I paid more for this fight in New Jersey than the Boston one, even though the Fox card was top to bottom more stacked, because there's two titles on the Super Bowl card.
