UFC Fight Club? More like "Bending over for Dana White"

I just have to say this UFC 129 in Toronto has been a ****ing fiasco from the get go. Here's why:

1) Putting it in the Skydome aka "Rogers Center". This place is so big you can hardly enjoy a baseball game on a 400 foot baseball field, much less two guys in a 30 foot cage from the cheap seats (which he claimed he wouldn't even be selling initially). The whole "The experience will be just as good as every other stadium" pitch was a complete crock. There is another stadium about half a mile away, it's called the "Air Canada Center". It seats about 25,000 people and there literally isn't a bad seat in the entire place. But no, he wanted to sell 42,000+ tickets.

 

2) This UFC Fight Club membership. I bent over and took the $80 hit last year to go to UFC 113 in Montreal, thankfully mine was still active so I could use it again. I got lucky, got my 8 tickets and now me and 7 friends are pretty satisfied.... but I can't speak for the hundreds of angry fans on the UFC Fight Club page who are livid that they paid this $80 and didn't even get presale tickets. That is complete and total BS. Never have I seen a presale for any sporting event or live show where you would need to pay a fee to access a presale... but the venerable Dana White has gone above and beyond and now just made an ungodly amount of free money. No wait, you get a lanyard and a t-shirt. It's not even a nice t-shirt, I use it to wash my car.

 

3) The amount of seats released for the presale is a joke, the idea of having several presales isn't new but the audacity to with-hold a bunch of seats when they sell out this fast and knowing you will sell more (read: additional to the first 42,000 currently accounted for) and open them up later to the public after a bunch of real fans have shelled out $80 to get priority is just an insult

 

In short, I hope my seats are close enough to throw garbage at Dana White and maybe also Mike Goldberg
