UFC’s 129 PPV In Toronto Sells Over 40,000 Instantly



In an article just posted on The Heyman Hustle, it is revealed that UFC sold its entire original ticket block, over 42,000 tickets for its long-awaited debut in Toronto when tickets went on sale through the UFC Fight Club membership today. The event, UFC 129, will be headlined by Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre defending his title against Jake Shields, will take place on April 30th at the Rogers Centre.

“I LOVE CANADA!” UFC President Dana White texted some members of the Canadian media, and well he should.

Some people paid a premium of almost $90 to join the UFC’s fan club so they could have first dibs on the tickets for the UFC’s first-ever show in Ontario, and the event officially sold out during the pre-sale offering!

The previous UFC attendance record was UFC 124 in Montreal, which drew 23,152 to the Bell Centre in December. Dana often refers to Canada as the mecca of mixed martial arts. “To say the response was overwhelming would be an understatement,” said Tom Wright, the UFC’s director of Canadian operations.
