Are you tired of worrying if the UFC tickets you bought off eBay are bogus and are going to get declined when you get to the arena? How about overpaying the scalpers sitting in front of the venue for sold out Octagon events (as well as dealing with the same concern mentioned in the previous sentence)?

Well, fret no further, fight fans.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is partnering with Ticketmaster to create the official ticket resale marketplace for UFC action. Fans now have the ability to buy and sell tickets to live UFC shows via a secure resale platform powered by Ticketmaster technology.

“UFC is the best live event experience in the world and by partnering with Ticketmaster, our fans have a reliable, quick and convenient way to buy and sell UFC tickets,” UFC president Dana White (Pictured) said. “We are really excited to continue working with Ticketmaster to make buying and selling UFC tickets easier than ever.”

The Official Resale Marketplace of the UFC by Ticketmaster provides fans a trusted online destination where tickets for select events can be bought and sold safely. For tickets at select venues, the marketplace offers Ticketmaster’s barcode transfer technology where tickets fans purchase from resellers are verified by Ticketmaster for authenticity and then reissued with new barcodes for the buyer, guaranteeing the validity of the tickets.

The NFL, NBA and USTA offer their enthusiasts the same platform with Ticketmaster.

Fans searching for tickets to UFC events, including their sold out “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz” card on December 8th at KeyArena in Seattle, can access the UFC Official Resale Marketplace now.
