UFC 134 Sells Out in 74 Minutes

via www.mmasucka.com

It looks like Brazil is happy to have the UFC coming back. UFC 134, set for August 27th in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, managed to sell out the HSBC Arena in less time than it takes to watch a movie. 74 minutes, to be exact. Via UFC.com:

In just one hour and 14 minutes, tickets to the UFC’s return to Brazil on August 27th have sold out, setting the stage for what will be an incredible night inside Rio’s HSBC Arena when Anderson Silva defends his UFC middleweight crown against Yushin Okami in the UFC 134 main event.

Also in action will be Brazilian heroes Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Antonio "Minotauro" Nogueira, who will face Forrest Griffin and Brendan Schaub, respectively on this historic night, which marks the first UFC event in Brazil since 1998. The card will air on Pay-Per-View.

Dana stated earlier in the week at the UFC 134 press conference that 16,752 tickets would be available for the event, with prices ranging from R275 (170 USD) to R1600 (1000 USD). So it looks like Zuffa will make a pretty penny on the Rio gate.
