The UFC has announced that UFC 93 “Franklin vs. Henderson”, which is headlined by Rich Franklin vs. Dan Henderson and also features Mark Coleman vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, has sold out just two weeks after tickets went on sale for the January 17th event at the O2 Arena in Dublin, Ireland.
The sales were the best ever for the UFC in Europe, with more than 6000 tickets selling in the first week and the entire 10,000 selling out in less than two weeks.
“The UFC brand of mixed martial arts is the already biggest indoor sport in the UK – and we are ecstatic that the popularity and passion for the UFC is matched across the Irish Sea,” UFC UK Division President Marshall Zelaznik said. “This is our seventh successive sell-out in the British Isles since April of 2007, and we now hold records in six of the biggest arenas in all of Europe. We have the most dedicated and passionate fans in sport and we are thrilled to be bringing some of the biggest names in the sport to the Emerald Isle early in the New Year.”
