UFC 94 officially a sellout; “UFC Primetime” debuts tonight

The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced Wednesday that the promotion’s UFC 94 fight card scheduled for the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas is officially a sellout.

With all 14,000-plus tickets to the event no longer on sale, fight fans that wish to see Georges St. Pierre defend his UFC welterweight title against reigning UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn will have to order the event on pay-per-view.

The UFC’s promotion of the PPV will heat up tonight when it debuts the first episode of UFC Primetime on Spike TV tonight at 10 p.m. ET.

Modeled after HBO’s hit documentary series 24/7, UFC Primetime will air behind-the-scenes footage shot around Penn and St. Pierre as they prepare for their epic clash. A total of three episodes will air the next three Wednesday nights as a prelude to UFC 94.

While the UFC has yet to publicly confirm, published reports indicate that the company spent $1.7 million in total production costs in order to film the three episodes of UFC Primetime that will center around Penn and St. Pierre.

    All access = UFC Primetime x 3 episodes. Although this is probably true I’m always happy to watch anything like this no matter what they call it. Who needs network television. The UFC is doing just fine without it.

  • BigDave says:

    Does anyone actually think penn is making it out of the first round? Penn is gonna get destroyed by Rush. He is so far supirior to penn in every part of the fight game that im not making bets on who will win the fight but How St.Pierre will end it and at what time in round 1. BJ doesnt even deserve to be in a figh of this stature but Dana White loves the “BJ’s” Penn gives him so he gave him the fight.

  • Matty Halleran says:

    who ever wrote that about B J Penn should get a beat down…Penn has heavier hands and a better ground game Danna White should through you a beating

  • JOe K. says:

    They should have cut that down to one episode and gave the rest of the money to the guys on the undercard.

    Or they could spend that money buying a bit more ppv time to show more undercard fights.
