Purchasing tickets for the UFC 142 show in Rio de Janeiro was once again a distressing endeavor. To some, though, the sacrifice late Wednesday night was worth the sacrifice. Now there are still tickets available for the show, however, the cheaper, stands tickets have all sold out.
Set to begin at 11:30 pm last night, the Ingressos.com.br website exclusively selling the tickets became overloaded and buyers were stuck on a blank page and were forced to fill in their information over and over again. The system only started up again at 2 am, according to some fans—while most had already given up.
“It would have been a lot better to just wait in line somewhere or at the ticket booth at the HSBC Arena,” hissed a GRACIEMAG.com reader on Twitter.
