We had earlier reported that the ticket prices for UFC 229: Nurmagomedov vs McGregor at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas ranged from $205 to $2505.
Generally, non-McGregor UFC event ticket prices are much more affordable, sparking off speculation that even the price of the pay-per-view, which is usually $65, will be higher for UFC 229 as it was for May-Mac.
However, writer at UFC.com and veteran MMA journalist Damon Martin put out a tweet confirming that he had verified with the UFC officials that the pay-per-view price will not be altered for the event.
Just verified with UFC officials that the pay-per-view prices for UFC 229: Khabib vs McGregor will remain the same as all the other PPV cards. They aren't changing the price for any reason just because it's a bigger event. #UFC229

Early doors, this event is expected to be the biggest in UFC’s history, with the returning Conor McGregor taking on the undefeated Dagestani phenom who many claim to be the Irishman’s worst stylistic matchup, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
The event will go down on October 6th.
