We're just over a month away from the promotion's annual spring fling. Here's how (and when) to scoop up tickets.

Tickets for the UFC 173 Memorial Day Weekend pay-per-view (PPV) event, which is set to go down inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 24, 2014, will go on sale to the general public on Fri., April 11, 2014, at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT).

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Fight Club members and UFC Newsletter subscribers, naturally, will be able to scoop up tickets prior to them being available for public consumption thanks to two separate special pre-sales.

"Barao vs. Dillashaw" will feature a re-worked main event that pits reigning bantamweight champion Renan Barao opposite 135-pound upstart TJ Dillashaw, after a last-minute surgery forced the original headliner to be postponed until July.

See all the details on those changes here.

In the co main event, Robbie Lawler will bang it out with Jake Ellenberger for the right to stay alive in the 170-pound title chase, while Francisco Rivera and Takeya Mizugaki hook 'em up in bantamweight action.

Here is the current UFC 173 tickets sales schedule (all times ET):

  • UFC Fight Club presale: Weds., April 9 at 1 p.m.
  • UFC Newsletter presale: Thurs., April 10 at 1 p.m.
  • General tickets sale: Fri., April 11 at 1 p.m.

UFC 173 tickets can be purchased right here through SBNation.com (via Tickets Now) with a discount for first-time buyers (details here). It will also be available to watch on pay-per-view (PPV) in the United States, and elsewhere, at 10 p.m. ET on fight night.
