After postponing ticket sales until a new main event was announced, UFC officials are now prepared to make UFC 173 tickets available to the masses.
Beginning April 9, UFC Fight Club members will have the chance to purchase tickets to the May 24 event from Las Vegas and the MGM Grand Garden Arena. UFC newsletter subscribers can buy tickets on April 10 and general public ticket sales are set for April 11.
Times for the start of ticket sales on all three days is 10 a.m. PT.
The card will feature Renan Barao defending his UFC bantamweight title against T.J. Dillashaw, while Junior dos Santos meets Stipe Miocic in the co-main event.
