Today was the UFC’s big press conference at SaskTel Centre about their upcoming UFC Fight Night 74 in Saskatoon on August 23.
Some more details emerged about the fight card, which also now includes Rick Story versus Erick Silva as a co-main event to the Max Holloway versus Charles Oliviera card. Patrick Cote takes on Josh Burkman in another fight, and the list goes on.
But who cares about those guys. What I really want to know is whether Arianny Celeste and Brittney Palmer will be there, too! These ring girls are worth the price of admission all by themselves.
(Ha ha ha, I’m only sort of kidding.)
Anyway, the other news is tickets are going to go for as low as $50, and that’s good because that’s about all I can possibly afford. No doubt, though, there will be plenty of jokers out there who will say “this card isn’t even worth that kind of money!”
Whether or not I go to UFC Fight Night will entirely depend on how quickly these $50 seats are snapped up. If too few cheap seats are put up for sale, I might just end up sitting at home on Fight Night. Tickets go on sale Friday.
Also, I found another article on the UFC event in Saskatoon, saying UFC owes the city a good card. We’ll see if these fights are any good.
In any event, whatever news value this press conference had today in the world of MMA was drowned out by stories that featherweight champ Jose Aldo might have injured himself, throwing in jeopardy his much-anticipated upcoming UFC 189 fight with Conor McGregor.
Update: apparently the Aldo-McGregor fight is still on.
