The Ultimate Fighting Championship ® (UFC ®) organization today announced a new relationship with two ticket industry heavyweights StubHub and PrimeSport (a RazorGator Company) to become the official ticketing and hospitality partners of the UFC.
The new multi-year agreement designates StubHub as the “Official Fan to Fan Ticket Marketplace” of the UFC, while PrimeSport will become the “Official Ticket Package Partner” of the UFC. The deal promises to offer UFC fans the most user-friendly experience to buy and sell secondary tickets as well as exclusive package and hospitality opportunities that have never been available before for UFC events.
Of course “Fan to Fan” is just a nice way to say “Scalper” – the UFC is now actively encouraging people to buy tickets to resell them at retardo prices. This just blows my fucking mind that they’d do that. Most companies work their asses off to kill this kind of behavior, but apparently since the UFC can make a few bucks off a partnership they seem happy to let this shit fly.
The UFC was lucky that there wasn’t a huge backlash after the bullshit that went down at the last UFC in Montreal – I think everyone was just so giddy from the fact that the company was coming to Canada that we let this shit slide. But if what happened then becomes a regular occurrence I think you’re going to see people (other than me) losing their goddamn minds. Again, it just blows my mind that the UFC would encourage this. The fact that Dana White can call MMA bloggers and news sites ‘parasites’ and then set up a deal like this makes me want to put a cinder block through his cocksucking two-faced windshield.
What complete disrespect to the fans. If I was a cartoon character I’d have steam coming out of my ears right now. I’d also have a wolf’s head but a man’s body and a three foot neon green penis. And a dragon tail. Eugh, even Yiffy humor can’t calm me down. Motherfuckers.
