UFC 205 at Madison Square Garden is on pace to be the most expensive UFC ticket ever recorded on the resale market.

The average asking price for Saturday night’s card as of Tuesday afternoon was $2,053.59, with a low of $768, according to TicketIQ, which monitors a number of secondary market sites.

The average of actual sales as of Tuesday afternoon was $1,067.

TicketIQ said its costliest previous UFC event in records dating to 2010 was UFC 137, which averaged an asking price of $1,148. That event in Las Vegas featured B.J. Penn against Nick Diaz in 2011.
