Fans across social media have hit out, after news surfaced revealing one fan paid in excess of $112,000 to attend UFC 295 in November at Madison Square Garden – to take in Jon Jones’ Octagon return and heavyweight title defense against Stipe Miocic.
UFC 295, which takes place in two months’ time, has yet to receive its official co-main event slot, with an expected welterweight title fight between the incumbent, Leon Edwards, and former champion, Colby Covington yet to be finalized at the time of publication.
However, despite the lack of an entire card fielded by the organization, fans have been forced to fork out in excess of $1,000 for a single ticket to attend Jones return fight against Miocic – a former two-time heavyweight champion, who makes his comeback for the first time in over three years.
In contrast, for Alex Pereira’s middleweight title defense at UFC 287 back in April in Miami, Florida in his eventual title loss to former champion, Israel Adesanya, the highest-priced ticket sold for a whopping $31,730.
