As the Ultimate Fighting Championship heads back to the East Coast, the fans have responded once again, and welcomed the UFC back with open arms.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship on Wednesday announced that tickets are officially sold out for UFC 111: St-Pierre vs. Hardy, which takes place Saturday, March 27 at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.
“I love every time we go to the East Coast,” UFC president Dana White said. “The fans always come out and show their support. We’re coming there with a stacked card and two championship fights. This time New Jersey – New York is next.”
In featured bouts, one of the best fighters in the game today, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, looks to extend his reign and his six-fight winning streak against British bomber Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy, and former heavyweight champion Frank Mir looks to become only the second man in UFC history to win the championship three times when he takes on number one contender Shane Carwin for the interim UFC heavyweight title.
