How big is Saturday’s “UFC 205: Alvarez vs. McGregor” event inside NYC’s Madison Square Garden? Apparently, $29,510.50 big for two people.
According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, that was the price that two second-row seats went for on the secondary market ticket selling leader StubHub. It is unknown what the face value of the tickets are.

The 13-bout card is stacked from top to bottom, featuring some of the UFC’s biggest names. UFC golden boy and featherweight champion Conor McGregor (pictured) challenges lightweight champ Eddie Alvarez for his title in the show’s featured attraction. McGregor will become the first fighter in UFC history to simultaneously hold two belts if victorious.
Welterweight champ Tyron Woodley puts his strap on the line against Stephen Thompson in the co-main event, while starwweight title holder Joanna Jedrzejczyk dances with Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the night’s third-featured bout.
For those of you who don’t have the extra $29K to watch ringside inside MSG, you can order the six-fight pay-per-view portion of the event for a cool $59.95.
