There will be an Ultimate Fighting Championship event at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh on June 26, and tickets will go on sale on Saturday, April 23 at 10:00 AM.
The headline event will be Nate "The Great" Marquardt, who is dropping to the welterweight classification, against Anthony "Rumble" Johnson. Also, there will be a heavyweight match between Pat "HD" Barry and Cheick Kongo. There will also be a matchup between Christian Morecraft and Matt Mitrione.
Ticket prices range from $50 to $250 and can be purchased at the Consol Energy Center or through Ticketmaster. It will be televised on Versus at 9:00 PM.
Both fighters are well rounded, capable of grappling and striking with equal skill. But for Marquardt, and for many fighters about to cut to a new weight class, the battle that happens before the fight is just as interesting as anything that happens in the cage.
Marquardt will be battling the weight issue as much as he'll be battling Johnson.
