    80,000 is a lot, I went to ufc 171 and that was like 19,000. Cant imagine what that would be like

    Edit: ^the fuck?

    They will sell out Croke Park which can hold 80,000 not including the pitch tickets.It would easily sell out in under an hour if UFC was to come back to Ireland.

    The issue is often though that a stadium will only be licenced for a certain attendance so even if pitch tickets can potentially increase capacity they don't always do so.

    One advantage either Croke Park or the Aviva stadium would have is that they both have one end of the ground that's a lot smaller. That means you could stick the cage at the other higher capacity end to keep the fans closer to the action and not lose out on a great deal of seating. Crokes seating would be further from the cage though as the pitch is a gaelic football pitch is a good deal wider than a soccer pitch.

    That wouldn't make a difference.The majority of people would be happy to watch it on the big screen and just be a part of the atmosphere.As far as I know they are saying that Croke Park will have 90,000 restriction including pitch tickets.

    There is now talk that the fight will be in Vegas.I think this would be a huge mistake.Having 90,000 of the loudest and most passionate fans in the world all cheering for the same person inside that stadium has never happened before.Look at the atmosphere they made at the last event there (and that was only 10k) I couldn't even hear the commentator for some bits.They were like that for the whole event including the undercard.

    Whatever loss they make on PPV selling they would more than make up for it in gate receipts,publicity etc.
