MANDALAY BAY TO HOST CLOSED CIRCUIT VIEWING PARTY FOR UFC 137: ST-PIERRE vs. CONDIT


When the overwhelming demand for event tickets for UFC 137: ST-PIERRE vs. CONDIT resulted in an immediate sellout, the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Mandalay Bay needed to create the next best thing to being inside the Events Center. Thus, the companies announced today that they will host a closed circuit viewing event with large projection screens in the South Seas Ballroom at Mandalay Bay on Saturday, Oct. 29.

UFC 137: ST-PIERRE vs. CONDIT features the can’t-miss welterweight title fight between champion Georges St-Pierre and knockout artist Carlos Condit, as well as former two-division champion BJ Penn battling the fiery and unpredictable Nick Diaz. With action inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center, as well as in the South Seas Ballroom, the resort now has become the ultimate destination for fight fans to witness this epic card.

Tickets for the closed circuit viewing party are $50 and go on sale TODAY at 10 a.m. PT. Tickets are available for purchase through Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com, www.mandalaybay.com or the Mandalay Bay box office. Doors for the viewing party will open at 4 p.m. PT, with the preliminary fights being aired on SPIKE TV at 5 p.m. PT. At 6 p.m. PT, the live UFC 137 Pay-Per-View card will be televised.
