After a sell out of almost 8,000 tickets in the lower bowl of the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, Calif., World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) announced today that it is opening the upper sections of the arena for WEC: Faber vs. Pulver. The additional seating will be priced at $35 (not including applicable services or taxes). On Sunday June 1, MMA pioneer Jens Pulver challenges WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber in a bout where only one of these 145-pound fighters will emerge with the victory in the most important featherweight bout of all-time.
â€œWEC fans bought all of the tickets so fast that we decided to open up more seats upstairsâ€ said Peter Dropick, Vice President of Operations and Production for the WEC. â€œWe originally planned to sell seats only in the lower sections for this event, but itâ€™s going to be such an exciting night of fights that we want to accommodate as many fans as possible to see the live actionâ€.
Tickets for WEC: Faber vs. Pulver are on sale now and are priced at $35, $75, $125, and $185 (not including applicable services or taxes).
