Tickets For The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale Go On Sale March 8

February 28, 2013 | Posted by Joseph Lee

MMA Junkie reports that tickets for The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale go on sale March 8. The main event will be a bantamweight fight between Urijah Faber and Scott Jorgensen. The event itself takes place on April 13 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The main card airs on FX after preliminary fights on FUEL TV and Facebook.

Because of a scheduling conflict with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas, the finale was moved to Mandalay Bay. It is the first in the event series to take place at an arena instead of a smaller concert venue.

The original headlining fight was a flyweight title bout between champion Demetrious Johnson (17-2-1 MMA, 5-1-1 UFC) and John Moraga (12-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC). Johnson was forced out with an injury, and Faber (27-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) vs. Jorgensen (14-6 MMA, 3-2 UFC) was named the featured bout instead, along with the tournament final of the show, which currently airs on FX.

Tickets range from $50 to $20. They go on sale to the general public on March 8 at 1 PM ET (10 AM PT). UFC Fight Club members can buy tickets on March 6 at 1 PM ET and UFC.com e-newsletter subscribers can buy them on March 7 at 1 PM ET.

Here’s the latest card:
