    They shouldve made the front tickets more expensive.

    UFC at MSG tickets were $800 to $12,000 and still sold out really fast.

    I understand making the back seating cheap since its 90,000 arena, but the front tickets couldve been $10,000 and wouldve still sold.

    I don't know. The Europeans are tough, but Europe is a tough nut to crack. If Europe can best Europe though, then Europe will be in a good spot.

    Weren't those resale prices for 205?

    Anyway, UFC 205 sold around 20400 tickets, and Joshua vs Klitschko sold 50,000 already, with another 30,000 or so likely to sell out in January. Kind of two different kettles of fish.

    What's with your endorsement of gouging anyway, first GGG VS Jacobs, and now this.....they should charge more. Fucking lame if you ask me.

    Funny thing about that, is that Hearn knows exactly what he is doing with the tickets. There won't be a press row, which opens up more seats to be sold.

    We're talking 90,000 ppl here. The UFC doesnt understand those type of numbers.

    Canelo's last fight had over 50,000 people attending and only drew a $5 million gate because the ticket prices were low. Ticket prices make a huge difference if you know the area is gonna sell out (particularly the VIP seats).

    GGG/Jacobs is likely going to have to like $7 million gate, when they could easily have $12 million simply by raising the prices, because people will pay for them

    Yea well maybe they dont want a bunch of snob nosed pussies filling up the arena, just to be hip and part of whatever is relevant at the moment.
    Lower the prices and let some of the true boxing fans who maybe dont have alot of money, get a shot to go.

    Yeah its not as if the people involved in the fight aren't going to make plenty of money. Fans get rinsed enough and those tickets still aren't that cheap, lets be honest

    GGG/Jacobs is definitely different because that PPV is likely gonna flop while the demand to see it live is high.

    If they raised the price of the tickets, less people would be able to go, but they would make so much money off the gate that HBO can pay a little and it wouldnt have to be a PPV.

    Already sold out 4 months before the fight. I told you they shouldve doubled down on the price of the tickets.

    Thats a lot of money lost that Eddir Hearn couldve made
