    I was able to get tickets for UFC 200. I got in on the second wave of presale, as I wasn't going to spend an extra $90 per ticket for their premium club. It was already almost sold out for the cheap seats when it opened up at 9am. I am not a big enough gambler to get them as comps but last year for Fight Week I was able to purchase through the casino block. I was concerned that I was going to have to start begging to let me buy someone's extra comp tickets, but I am sure the hosts would have questioned if Shifter asked for comp tickets in the upper bowl!

    The card isn't shaping us as good as I hoped it would, though UFC 196's results had a lot to do with that. I was REALLY hoping for a GSP return for 200 but from what I've heard that's pretty unlikely now. As long as Jones / Cormier stay healthy, that should be a great fight

    The $505 price level and below were sold out within an hour of the presale this morning, not that there were many left anyway with the fight club presales. This will be an experience, as there are many good fights on the card. I cant remember the last time that a ppv card stayed intact from announcement to fight night.

    Got tickets for myself and a friend, after a bit of refreshing, and messing about with my iPad.

    Looking forward to it, and probably going to see the other 2 events at the MGM on the Thursday & Friday, too.

    Not been to a UFC in Vegas since 148, and hopefully there won't be any injuries between now and July.

    Got exactly the same two seats for Thursday & Friday, lol.

    Only 2 months to wait, and 6 1/2 weeks until Vegas!!

    My son wants to go to the other two events as well. If I can get any cheap seats tomorrow I might surprise him. I am not sure that I want to hang for three nights in a row though. Looks like I waited too long to get reasonable airfare though, gonna be $300+ per ticket from Seattle. I guess this will be a low gambling trip, unless I get lucky early.

    They're reasonably priced ($46-$204) for both events, so hope that you manage to get something suitable.

    Flights are definitely the killer when you're coming from the UK, and paying a $1k minimum, lol.

    Well, if I get real about it, based on the last trip to Vegas, it would be cheaper to get the best seats for those two events than to stay out on the casino floor! I will look for the day two codes that we have for our fight pass membership. I refuse to pay the extra $90 or so for the fight club on principle alone.

    I don't know if you're serious, but top to bottom UFC 200 is one of the best cards I have seen in a long time. The Tate championship fight shouldn't even be on the main card. There are some serious slug-fest match-ups on the schedule. I do not see many fights on this card going to a decision, and swapping another McGregor loss for a Jones/Cormier war only made the card better. I cannot wait to see how Edgar does against Aldo.

    After searching for reasonable airfare and not finding anything, we have revised this to a road trip. The days/times that we wanted are costing nearly as much for one ticket as we have spent on four tickets on previous trips. We both have vacation time to use, and wanted to do something more than just Vegas anyway. We can drive, add hotels, meals and day stops on the way for less than airfare. Only part that will suck is when we are done it is ~20 hours home instead of 3. Got tickets for both of the early cards so my son is happy, and got show tickets one night (Le Reve) and helicopter tour of the grand canyon for the wife and daughter so they are excited. Well at least my daughter is, my wife is scared shitless. She is excited about the grand canyon part, not so much on the helicopter part. And on the way down we have planned on driving the PCH and spending a day at Magic Mountain for the roller coasters.
