    If someone was able to get their hands on a publicly sold ticket by MGM, are they not giving them out until fight night?

    Meaning: Is there no resale market for the ones MGM releases directly through it website?

    I'd expect the people in the ticket game to be miffed about this. Maybe MGM set aside enough that they don't care about the less than 1,000 that'll get out to the paupers. haha

    I guess I mean outside of scalping them on the property (which sounds like a physically risky idea). How would someone resell them?

    I doubt there will be much if any scalping on property due to the prices.

    but you can put the tix on a resale website and meet to deliver them in person fight day.

    or you can call a local broker and agree to sell at a price and then deliver them on fight day.

    there will be tons of tickets changing hands the afternoon of the fight.

    there always is.
