UFC 68 ticket auction ends tomorrow

In concert with, the UFC is selling nine tickets for UFC 68 to the highest bidders.

The auctions have already started and will end on January 23 at 4 p.m.

Seats for the upcoming show in Columbus, Ohio, are going fast. I just did a quick search on and it looks like most of the cheap seats are gone.

With a capacity of up to 20,000, it’s safe to say that the Nationwide Arena will be jammed on March 3 to witness the return of Randy Couture, as well as cheer on hometown (kinda) hero Rich Franklin.

I’m not a high roller, so paying $400 plus to sit in the “lower bowl” (where most of the available seats are located) at the $150 million facility just isn’t possible.

But, your bank account is probably bigger than mine.

These auctions are for “some of the best seats in the house.” Therefore, it’s going to cost you quite a few pretty pennies to be the winner.

I think a few of the auctions were nearing $600 when I wrote this — and will certainly rise as the end nears tomorrow.

Good luck.
