UFC 176 has reportedly sold $800,000 in tickets

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

UFC 176 might not happen at this point, but ticket sales for the Staples Center hosted event have been strong.

There's no guarantee that UFC 176 will actually happen at this point, but tickets are being sold at a good clip according to a report at MMA Junkie.

The card is currently without a main event following Jose Aldo having to drop out of his title fight with Chad Mendes. The rest of the card is without any sort of pay-per-view draw, with Gray Maynard representing the most well known fighter in the line-up.

The MMA Junkie report stated that the UFC has sold about $800,000 in tickets for the Staples Center.

That's a solid number considering that Jose Aldo wasn't a particularly big draw on his own as it originally stood.

It's also a big enough number that I'm curious if the promotion could try to make some moves to simply move the card to Fox Sports 1 (or 2 or FX or FXX), rather than refund the tickets that have been sold to date.

Looking through the roster, there are very few options for anyone who could serve as a PPV savior on such short notice.
