UFC releases more tickets for UFC 120 for sold-out O2 Arena event
After reconfiguring the in-house production at the sold-out O2 Arena, London, England, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has been able to increase the seating capacity for next week's UFC 120: BISPING v AKIYAMA event.
THE UFC is to make extra seats available for next weekend's fight card in London - after selling out the original allocation.
According to UFC UK President Marshall Zelaznik on a conference call on Thursday to promote the event, the card will set both the gate and attendance records for a UFC event in the UK.
Despite complaints from some sections of the sport's following in the UK, the fight league has sold out the original seating plan for the O2 arena.
“We’re ecstatic that this event has captured the imagination like it has and sold out in its original plan," said UFC's UK chief Marshall Zelaznik.
"The level of support the British fighters get from their public is unbelievable and the O2 will have a blistering atmosphere from the very first horn.
"UFC 120 is already the most successful UFC event ever in Europe, and we are very happy to have been able to work with the O2 to reconfigure the seating plan to allow us to put more seats in.”
