The upcoming UFC 286 event features a welterweight title rematch between Kamaru Usman and Leon Edwards, which has generated a lot of excitement within the MMA community. The event, which will take place on March 18 at The O2 Arena in London, marks the UFC’s return to UK soil and is expected to draw a large crowd.
However, the ticket prices for UFC 286 have raised eyebrows due to their exorbitant cost. According to a survey by Slots Online Canada, the average ticket price for the event is the second-highest for a sporting event in 2023, with only the Super Bowl LVII surpassing it.
The ticket prices for UFC 286 range from $485 to $4,460, which is significantly higher than the prices for the American Football Conference championship that concluded on February 13. It’s unclear why the cost of a UFC ticket is so steep, as there are no obvious factors that can be linked to the high prices. Despite the high prices, fans are eagerly anticipating the event and looking forward to the Usman-Edwards rematch.
