Need UFC 59 Info

Hey everyone this is going to be my first UFC and I was just wondering what time should I get to the weigh ins and actual fights. I want to get there to see the prelim fights and was wondering how early should I leave? Also are the weigh ins only for ticket holders or can anyone get in? Thanks.

Weigh-in is free and open to the public. There is a free autograph session from 2 pm to 4 pm and fighters are on the scale at 4 pm.

Doors open at 4 pm the day of the event. The first pre-lim fight is at 5:15 pm. 7 pm is the first televised fight.

Thanks alot Saucy!

To this day I will never understand why the arena is 3/4 empty when the fights start. These people are paying hundreds of dollars and missing 3-4 fights

"To this day I will never understand why the arena is 3/4 empty when the fights start."

At UFC 44 this was true. It is not true anymore. I would guess the arena is over half full at the start of the fights.
