Last May the UFC held a televised MMA event at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena with no fans, but it was the first real sporting event in Florida after the shutdown.
This April 24, UFC 261 will be fully open to fans and UFC President and CEO Dana White, with the backing of Jacksonville City Hall, is promoting a full-house of 15,000. Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 26 for UFC 261.
The event will draw many critics and many fans as it will be the first indoor event, certainly in Florida, to offer full capacity to watch a 12-bout card.
