UFC fans are beyond excited for Conor McGregor‘s return to the octagon at UFC 303 against Michael Chandler on June 28.

They have also been beyond belief in seeing what the tickets cost for the much-anticipated event.

Tickets for the event at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas don’t officially go on sale on April 26. But on Monday the UFC released ticket information including the pricing for VIP ticket packages.

Those VIP tickets run as high as $12,000 per seat.

High Stakes. Even Higher Prices

What they’re calling the “challenger” package includes a seat in the 100-level section, arena hospitality, a saved seat at the ceremonial weigh-in, a spot to be held at the post-weigh-in reception, and a VIP entrance into the arena.

Then they raised the stakes.

The “champion” package they’re offering gives you a floor seat, arena hospitality, an experience in the octagon after the fight, and a ticket for the post-weigh-in reception.

But you can even go higher than that.

They also offer an “elite” package. But it doesn’t mention a price. If $12,000 sounds outrageous for some of the other packages, we’d rather not know how much being ‘elite’ costs.

This event will mark the first time McGregor has stepped into the octagon in three years.

In his last fight on July 10, 2021 McGregor lost via TKO to Dustin Poirier. That match ended when McGregor suffered a broken leg.

The last time McGregor won in UFC was in early 2020 when he beat Donald Cerrone.

This time McGregor will be battling a new opponent, Michael Chandler, his former opposing coach on Ultimate Fighter 31.

Both men haven’t fought in over a year.

Chandler Vows to End McGregor’s Career

Chandler is confident, saying recently how he thinks the fight will go, “It’s going to be a big card, it’s going to be fun, and I finish Conor within the first two rounds and after that, probably end his career.”

Will this be the end of Conor McGregor’s career? Buy the PPV.

Or if you’re lucky enough to have an extra $12,000 laying around, go see the show!

McGregor currently holds a record of 22-6-0, with 19 wins and 2 losses by TKO. Two of those losses are his last two fights, and have come at the hands of Dustin Poirier.
