The upcoming UFC event headlined by a mega-fight between UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn has sold out.
“UFC 94: St. Pierre vs. Penn” takes place Jan. 31 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. More than 14,000 attendees are expected for the pay-per-view event.
The event puts St. Pierre’s welterweight title on the line, and Penn could become the first-ever fighter to hold two UFC title simultaneously with a victory.
(Although the UFC today announced the event is sold out, as of Wednesday morning, some single tickets are available in a variety of seating sections. However, you’ll be hard pressed to find a pair of tickets for adjacent seats in any sections.)
In addition to St. Pierre vs. Penn, the SuperBowl-weekend card also features televised bouts of Lyoto Machida vs. Thiago Silva, Stephan Bonnar vs. Jon Jones, Karo Parisyan vs. Dong Hyun Kim and Nate Diaz vs. Clay Guida.
To hype a main event UFC President Dana White has called “epic,” Spike TV will roll out “UFC Primetime: St. Pierre vs. Penn,” a three-part preview series that cost nearly $2 million to produce. Beginning tonight, the series airs each Wednesday night at 10 p.m. EST/PST on Spike TV.
