The lineup is set for next month’s UFC Fight Night 46 event, and if you’re near Ireland and want to check it out live, you’ll have one final chance to purchase tickets.

UFC Fight Night 46 takes place July 19 at The O2 in Dublin. The entire event, including a featherweight headliner between Conor McGregor (14-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) and Diego Brandao (18-9 MMA, 4-2 UFC), streams on UFC Fight Pass.

UFC officials today announced that additional tickets will be released for the event, which originally sold out “in a matter of minutes,” according to today’s announcement.

With a new seating configuration, the organization will make more tickets available for purchase starting Tuesday. Officials now expect to set new UFC attendance and live-gate records for the venue, who hosted UFC 93 in 2009. That event drew an announced attendance of 9,369 and a live gate of $1.3 million.

“We’re ecstatic that this event has captured people’s imagination like it has and sold out in its original plan,” UFC executive Tom Wright stated. “The level of support is unbelievable, and The O2 will have a blistering atmosphere from the very first horn. UFC Fight Night Dublin is already the most successful UFC event ever in Europe, and we are already planning more events throughout this year and into 2015.”

The full UFC Fight Night 46 lineup includes:

MAIN CARD (UFC Fight Night, 3 p.m. ET)

  • Conor McGregor vs. Diego Brandao
