UFC: London tickets on sale Sunday
February 27th 2008

From Sunday March 2nd, British UFC fans will be able to begin buying tickets for UFC 85, which takes place on June 7th at the O2 Arena.

Fight Club members will be able to access a pre-sale from 10:00 GMT, while the newsletter presale begins at 10:00 GMT on Wednesday March 5th.

Open sale of tickets for the event will not commence until Friday March 7th, although the UFC generally keeps batches of tickets in reserve for last-minute release.

A recent pre-sale for the UFC 83, which features a title rematch between Georges St. Pierre and welterweight champion Matt Serra, saw Canadian fight fans snap up 13,000 tickets in less than 24 hours.

UFC 85 will feature a light-heavyweight showdown between former champion Chuck Liddell and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, who ruled his weight category in Pride FC.

And knockout artist Marcus Davis will be facing Mike Swick in a welterweight battle on the undercard, according to MMA Mania.

British MMA fans that are unable to attend the event in person can watch in a number of ways, as the UFC is broadcast live on Setanta and the following day on Bravo, while Fighters Only will as usual have a complete rundown of the whole event.
