I have been a hardcore fan of MMA since I first seen it in my army days in the late 2000's. Due to being away and the general army work ethic it was hard to keep track until l left at the start of 2011.
Since the beginning of that year I have been following the UFC daily and the growth of the sport. I have looked far and wide for a sport that I could get into and the UFC is by far my passion and the only sport I watch, it surpass's boxing in my eyes by far.
I was taking a questionnaire a few months ago and it asked what was my dream job and for a second I had no idea. I thought what was my passion, it was the UFC I would love to be working for them at some stage or another in my lifetime.
As far far fetched as my request may be. I learned if you don't ask/ or try your best, you don't get. So that is why I am requesting some help from you beautiful people to help an Irish guys dream of going to UFC 205 (The greatest card ever created) as far as I can remember I have never wanted something so much in my life to just be at this event and see my boy Connor McGregor and the rest of the amazing high profile athletes.
Due to being unable to get tickets on their realease date prices have soared. With me moving from Northern Ireland to outside Edinburgh for work with my family my savings have depleted some what.
My request is basic in the sense I don't want floor seats. I don't want restricted view seats. I'll take a nose bleeder seat in the far corner of the arena just to be there and enjoy the experience.
Looking at resale tickets they have shot up considerably at the time of writing this the cheapest tickets I could find were on Viagogo for
Then there is flights and digs (accommodation) the best I could find was £650 deal for 3 days which is all I am asking for 3 days.
Friday for the weigh in's.
Saturday event day.
Sunday fly home.
Closing date for this crowdfund would close on the 7th November. Which more than likely prices will have gone up.
As cheeky as this sounds I would love to bring my beatiiful wife to share this amazing experience with me. That is the reason I am requesting this amount I would put forth a £1000 on top of my requested amount to help facilitate this once in a life time trip.
