Earlier today we reported that UFC.tv had UFC 169 and UFC 170 priced at $59.95. If these prices were correct, that meant that the UFC would be raising the price $5 for all of it’s pay per views, and not just UFC 168 as Dana White had said. When the UFC announced they would be hiking up the price of the UFC 168 the reactions were mixed. Some were upset that the UFC upped the prices while other believed the event worthy of the $5 increase. Fans would certainly not welcome a price hike to every subsequent pay per view, however.
Thankfully, the price tags for the UFC 169 and 170 events are incorrect, and simply a mistake by the UFC web team. Jeremy Botter tweeted the news earlier:
I've just been told by the UFC that PPV prices after 168 have NOT been raised, and that the listings on UFC.tv are a web team mistake.

So, as Dana White had previously stated, the UFC 168 price hike is a one time thing for the special event.
