As a New York based MMA fan, I have been eagerly tracking the upcoming UFC event in Newark and wondering whether or not UFC 128 will be sold out . I decided to take a quick look at the state of the ticket market for this Saturday's event including ticket availability, primary market pricing and secondary market pricing.

Will UFC 128 Sell Out?
UFC events have continued to be a hot ticket item as MMA becomes an increasingly mainstream sport and Zuffa ("the man behind the curtain") makes key strategic plays to reassert its dominance in the US market and further position itself for continued global expansion. With this growth has come a slew of sold out events, including the most recent sell out of the +55k capacity Rogers Centre in Canada.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend the event due to a last minute conflict, but as always here at SeatGeek we are keen on keeping up to date on the latest ticket trends and hot events. Below, I look into face value ticket prices & ticket availability for this Saturday at the Prudential Center with a particular focus on which sections are sold out and where seats are still available. I have labeled something as "sold out" if a current basket of two tickets is unavailable on the primary ticket market, but will update this post accordingly if/when the venue becomes completely sold out.
UFC 128 Face Value Ticket Prices & Availability
Earlier I asked if UFC 128 is sold out? Well the answer is no, and it looks like it might not sell out unless Zuffa makes a big marketing pitch leading up to the event. That's not to say that the primary market should be your go to source because as we will see at lower price points the resale market is often your best bet.
Lower Level & Floor Seating/Pricing
Ticket Price Range: US $206.65 - US $531.40
- US $188.00 Ticket + US $18.65 Fees = US $206.65 [available in section 12, row 24]
- US $503.00 Ticket + US $28.40 Fees = US $531.40 [available in section 12, row 1]
Upper Level Seating/Pricing
US $74.90 - US $170.70
- US $63.00 Ticket + US $11.90 Fees = US $74.90 [quantity 2 sold out as of 3:30 on 3/16]
- US $116.45 [quantity 2 sold out as of 3:30 on 3/16]
- US $153.00 Ticket + US $17.70 Fees = US $170.70 [available in section 112]
Much like we saw with ticket prices at UFC 119, the cheapest tickets for UFC 128 are available on the secondary market through SeatGeek for $105 all-in in Section 233 due to the fact that the lowest price points are sold out on the primary market.
