ticket prices for Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler at UFC 303

Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler will go down next month on the 29th of June at UFC 303 in Las Vegas, Nevada. But if you want to go see what is sure to be an epic clash between the coaches on the latest season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’, then you may just have to have a few pounds on you!

The cheapest available seats for the clash are set at an eye-watering $1,325! Which, in current conversion rates, is over £1,000! And these are the cheap seats. Naturally, the closer you want to get to the action, the more it goes up.

Cageside, you will probably expect to fork out northwards of $6,000 (or almost £5,000!) This, of course, does beg the question; are normal fight fans being priced out of seeing the best fighters in the world? Is seeing elite sporting events getting more and more for the wealthy and rich?

UFC 303: Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler

McGregor vs Chandler is the main event on the UFC 303 card. The pair, as mentioned, were the rival coaches on the latest season of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’, which this year marks the 32nd season of the reality series. As normal for this show, part of the attraction is seeing the two head coaches knuckle up.

UFC icon explains why Michael Chandler could turn 'heel' ahead of Conor McGregor clash at UFC 303

Conor McGregor hasn’t fought since 2021, when he lost to Dustin Poirier. Since then, he has been struggling to recover from the leg injury he suffered in that clash. Could rust be an issue come fight night? As for Chandler, he also lost to Poirier in his last fight, in November 2022, so it’s safe to say he hasn’t been active either in recent years.

UFC president Dana White has confirmed that the gate for the upcoming event has already surpassed the $20m mark, meaning it is already the highest gate in UFC history. He said: “It’s way over $20 million.”

And with the gate receipts being “way over” $20m, according to White, it is likely the fresh total will smash previous UFC records, showing McGregor’s enduring appeal to MMA.
