Following her 14-second win over Cat Zingano at UFC 184 last weekend, the bantamweight champion was understood to be planning on using her earnings from the fight to buy a seat at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the big fight.
However, Arum is reportedly a huge fan of hers and after hearing that she desperately wanted to attend, he has decided to give her the only free ticket available for the fight card which will see her take a spot at ringside, according to the Daily Mail.
Tickets for the fight are expected to be significantly high, while there have been reports that they won’t even get to a public sale given the demand and the process which will see both fighters and promotional companies hand out the majority of them first.
Nevertheless, there are contrasting reports that around 1,000 tickets will be made available to the public, but Rousey no longer needs to worry about getting that all important pass if reports are to be believed.
There has been no confirmation from either the 28-year-old or Arum regarding the ticket situation, but if true, she is certainly enjoying life right now after her explosive performance on Saturday gained her further exposure outside of the UFC world.
Mayweather vs Pacquiao is expected to shatter several records given the demand that there is to see two of the best boxers of all time clash, and Rousey certainyl won’t be the only famous face sat ringside to see it happen on a huge night for Vegas.
