Just a public service reminder that tickets for UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson, are now on sale to the general public. The event takes place at Toronto's Air Canada Centre on September 21, and will feature Jon Jones' attempt to defend his UFC Light Heavyweight Championship for the sixth consecutive time as he faces Alexander Gustafsson in the main event.
The co-feature is also a title bout of sorts, as interim bantamweight champion Renan Barão put his belt on the line against Eddie Wineland. Other main card bouts have yet to be finalized, but other fights scheduled to take place include Mike Ricci versus Myles Jury (lightweight), Ivan Menjivar versus Norifumi Yamamoto (bantamweight), and Chris Clements versus Stephen Thompson (welterweight).
Tickets range from $75 to $450 and are available at Ticketmaster. UFC 165 is expected to be the promotion's first pay-per-view to utilize the new Fox Sports 1 cable channel to broadcast undercard fights instead of FX or Fuel TV.
Though Jones hails from Rochester, New York, he's made Toronto a home away from home of sorts. The 25-year-old was the headliner the last two times the UFC visited the Air Canada Centre, defeating Vitor Belfort at UFC 152 and Lyoto Machida at UFC 140. Georges St-Pierre is the other current UFC champion to have appeared in a main event in Toronto, defending his welterweight strap against Jake Shields at UFC 129.
