Tickets for the UFC’s return to Philadelphia, “UFC 133: Evans vs. Davis,” go on sale next week.
UFC 133, which is headlined by former champ Rashad Evans vs. fellow light-heavyweight contender Phil Davis takes place Aug. 6 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning June 11, but a pre-sale period begins June 8.
Tickets range from $50 to $500.
The public on-sale date begins at 10 a.m. ET on June 11. However, UFC Fight Club members can purchase on June 8 at 10 a.m. ET, and UFC.com e-newsletter subscribers can buy tickets June 9 at 10 a.m. ET.
Other top bouts from the card include light heavyweights Rich Franklin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and middleweights Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama.
The UFC’s first Philly event, UFC 101, took place in 2009. With a B.J. Penn vs. Kenny Florian championship headliner, the event drew 17,411 attendees for a $3.55 million gate.
“The last time we were in Philly, the fans were incredible, so we are excited to head back there with a card that features three former world champions,” UFC President Dana White stated. “Phil is undefeated at 9-0 and has never been more motivated for a fight, and he wants to prove that he belongs atop the light-heavyweight division. Rashad is on fire. He wants his title back so badly he can taste it, but he knows before he can get his title shot he has to get through Phil. He wants to win and he wants to win impressively. This is a great fight.”
