Live from General Motors Place, Saturday June 12, 2010

Las Vegas, NV (USA) – UFC® fans in Vancouver today set a new record for the fastest sellout in history, with UFC 115 selling out just 30 minutes after the ticket pre-sale started this morning at 10am PT.

At 10:44am PT, UFC President Dana White issued the official news via Twitter @danawhite, stating, “Vancouver sold out in 30 mins!!!! Thank you Vancouver we worked hard on getting it there. Thank you Mayor Robertson”

UFC 115 will be available live on Pay-Per-View on iN DEMAND, DIRECTV, DISH Network, TVN, BellTV, Shaw Communications, Sasktel, and Viewer’s Choice Canada for a suggested retail price of $44.99 US/$49.99 CAN for standard definition or high-definition broadcasts (where available).

A fighter with dynamite in both fists and a champion that’s known around the world, Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell (fighting out of San Luis Obispo, Calif. / 21-7 professional record) has faced the best and beaten the best. With an amazing 10 knockouts in the UFC, and seven consecutive at one point, Liddell is considered one of the greatest strikers in UFC history. With wins over Randy Couture, Tito Ortiz, Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort, this UFC Hall of Famer has cemented a legacy for himself in the sport of mixed martial arts.

“I’m ready for this fight, I’m in the best shape of my life, and I can’t wait to get back in the Octagon,” said Liddell. “I can’t tell the fans what happens in the Ultimate Fighter 11, you have to watch the show, but I’ll tell you how this is gonna end, I’m knocking Rich out.”

A former high school math teacher turned world-class mixed martial artist, Rich “Ace” Franklin (fighting out of Cincinnati, Ohio / 27-5-0 1 NC) holds memorable wins over Wanderlei Silva, Matt Hamill, Jason MacDonald and Nate Quarry. The former UFC middleweight champion that holds 12 wins in the UFC has moved up a weight class and looks to make even more noise in the light heavyweight division when he takes on one of the greatest fighters the UFC has ever seen.

“Chuck is a gamer,” Franklin said. “He is a professional - take Randy for example. He and Randy are friends, but he didn't have a problem fighting Randy and punching him in the head, so he sure won't have a problem punching me in the head. I’m excited about fighting Chuck, I’m going to give everything I have, and I look forward to giving fans a great fight in Vancouver.”
