    347 unused comps? maybe Dana should stop giving them to douchebags that dont even give a shit about MMA.

    Unless you are referring to unused tickets in general

    the unused comps were probably given to people at a casino.

    the comps are mostly given out by casinos right? Do they usually have that many comp seats when the event doesn't take place in vegas.

    Sry dunt rly understand the comps.

    dana always gives a few away on fight night via twitter. not sure about FB as i don't really use it anymore.

    radio stations probably give away some.

    even if its labeled as a sell out can still usually pick up cheap tickets on fight night.

    I thought the casinos buy their tickets from UFC, then comps them to their guests, and comps from UFC perspective are freebies from UFC to recipients. I thought one appeal of holding a UFC event in LV was the hotels would be buying tickets to comp their guests.

    Does this mean Cain & JDS didn't transform into big star draws after being on FOX 1? Who is their top HW draw?
