UFC 296 is one of the biggest PPVs for the promotion but are the tickets on sale and which fighters is the card set to feature?

UFC 296 will be another blockbuster event for the UFC as it takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

This event will be held on December 16, 2023, and like the last few UFC events in the month, it will be held in the same location.

The prices of UFC tickets range depending on what event it is and where a person wants to sit. For example, this weekend’s UFC 292 card is headlined by a Bantamweight title fight between Aljamain Sterling and challenger Sean O’Malley.

Tickets for this fight start at around $300 which is far away from the Octagon and can go up to a couple of thousand dollars for being really close to the action.

There are other VVIP packages also which go for $4,000 and more, so expect prices to be similar to this when the UFC 296 ticket details are available.

Are UFC 296 tickets on sale?

UFC 296 tickets are not on sale presently. There is no information about the pricing or availability of tickets either on the UFC website or other ticketing outlets.

In fact, tickets for the previous PPV, UFC 295 which has Jon Jones defending his Heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic on 12 November, are still not on sale. 

What is the UFC 296 card like?

Unfortunately for fight fans, there is no confirmation of the fights which will take place at UFC 296.

While the December PPV is the final one of the year as the UFC takes a bit of a break from the weekly shows, nothing has been finalised yet.

There should be some huge fights nonetheless as the UFC would want to finish off their PPV calendar with a bang.

Rumours have circulated that TUF 31 coaches Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler could fight. The pair have been taking shots at each other outside of the Octagon as they coach their team in TUF.

McGregor being on any card would be excellent, and this fight would be a banger given Chandler’s always looking to produce a highlight finish. 

However, this is just a rumour and there will be more clarity on the UFC 296 card as the event inches closer.
