On Tuesday, the UFC announced that UFC 126 taking place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center has sold out ahead of the Feb 5 fight date.
The card features a main event middleweight title bout between Anderson Silva and top contender Vitor Belfort, as well as popular fighter Forrest Griffin and Rich Franklin squaring off in a light heavyweight match-up.
“Fans have been telling me how excited they are for this card ever since we announced the event,” UFC President Dana White said. “This is a stacked card from top to bottom and fans responded by making UFC 126 a sellout.”
While tickets to the actual show are sold out, fans in Las Vegas still have availability to purchase seats to a viewing of UFC 126 via closed circuit TV inside the Mandalay Bay at the Islander Ballroom for $50.
