Now that “The Money Fight” is in the rearview mirror, the UFC can return to somewhat normal operations when it comes to Las Vegas fight cards.
Tickets go on sale this week for the promotion’s next “Sin City” pay-per-view: UFC 216.
UFC 216 takes place Oct. 7 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
The lineup has not yet been finalized, but at the top of the bill, the interim lightweight title will be on the line when Tony Ferguson (22-3 MMA, 12-1 UFC) takes on Kevin Lee (16-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC). The two fight for an interim belt, and the winner will be in line to fight champ Conor McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC), who currently is on a 60-day medical suspension after his boxing match against Floyd Mayweather this past Saturday.
Tickets go on sale to the general public through Ticketmaster on Thursday beginning at 1 p.m. ET (10 a.m. PT local time). But ahead of that, two pre-sale periods are available. UFC Fight Club members can buy seats today at 10 a.m. PT, and UFC.com e-newsletter subscribers can purchase tickets Wednesday at 10 a.m. PT.
