    The Ticketmaster doesn't come up with anything available, even when I search for ANY ticket at ANY price
    That can't be right :squint:

    it looks like it, i got this email from them today:

    Due to incredible demand, nearly all of the tickets to UFC® 83: SERRA vs. ST-PIERRE 2 have been purchased by members of UFC® Fight Club in its exclusive presale which started on Sunday. Over 21,000 people will rock the Bell Centre on Saturday, April 19th, and the vast majority of them will be UFC® Fight Club members. The UFC® organization is honored to welcome so many of its most devoted fans to the event that night.

    Because of the unprecedented size of this presale, the normal UFC® Newsletter Presale will not take place. The scheduled public onsale date for this event is this Friday, February 8 at 12pm ET. On that date and time, a very limited number of tickets will be released for sale via Ticketmaster and at the Bell Centre Box Office.

    Additional viewing options for fans in the Montreal area, or those wishing to come to Montreal for the event, are currently being researched. Information will be made public as it becomes available via UFC.com and this UFC® Newsletter.

    For more information on the UFC® Fight Club, please visit http://www.ufcfightclub.com.

    Thanks for your support of the Ultimate Fighting Championship®!

    I've worked as a ticket broker for a few years. As a general rule, even though Ticketmaster says it's sold out almost immediately after a big event goes on sale, they release more tickets as it gets closer to the event, so keep checking back and you'll probably be able to pick up something, in most cases. However, because of what Christian posted, I'm not sure that this rule applies in this case. You might still be able to snatch a few at Ticketmaster... who knows.

    This is true. We deal with ticketmaster at my job. But this is a insanely popular event, so maybe not.

    They better you paid probably an extra $25 bucks in fees. Thats the least they can do is deliver them in a timely manner.
