If so was it difficult to get tickets, and how much were they?
Yes. I have been to 2 UFNs and 1 TUF finale and tickets are tough to get. You need to get them as soon as they go on sale or you are going to have a tough time getting them. I would recomend the $250 seats on the stage (I think they are called VIP tickets). You are above the ring so it is easier to see.
any input on when they go on sale? Where to buy (ufc website, Hard Rock website, etc)?
call the Hard Rock's ticket office to find out when they go on sale. You can buy them on Ticketmaster.com
Ok.. thanks everyone.. Hard Rocks Box Office don't seem to be too helpful, so I'll keep checking Ticketmaster
I'm not having much luck either, wtf? The event is in a month, the woman answering the phone at the Hard Rock couldn't even confirm that the event was taking place.
