UFC Rio: new tickets sell out in minutes

The Ultimate Fighting Championship and announce that all the additional tickets for UFC Rio put on sale sold out in just 12 minutes. The sale began at 11:30pm this Tuesday, the 26th, exclusively for Brazilians on the website.

According to the UFC, more than a thousand additional tickets being put on sale was made possible by adjustments to the event structure carried out by the team responsible for the event’s operations, creating more room to attend to the immense demand from Brazilian fans. Rather than the six big screens previously announced, four high-definition screens were installed, a configuration more in line with the events the UFC holds in the United States.

Prior ticket holders will be able to see just as well but with bigger and better screens. Over three metric tons of sound equipment and two metric tons of light gear will be used.

The doors will open to the public starting at 6pm and the show will kick off with the preliminary card at 8pm.
