Extra seats made available for UFC 120 at the O2
THE UFC have managed to get extra seating at the O2 Arena for UFC 120 featuring top Brits Michael Bisping and Nottingham's Dan Hardy.
The event, on Saturday, quickly sold out but the clamour for tickets was so great that extra seats have now been made available.

UFC UK Division President Marshall Zelaznik said: "We're ecstatic that this event has captured the imagination like it has and sold out in its original plan.
"The level of support the British fighters get from their public is unbelievable and the O2 will have a blistering atmosphere from the very first horn. UFC 120 is already the most successful UFC event in Europe."
Eight British-born mixed martial artists are on the bill, which features Brighton's John Hathaway (14-0) against Las Vegas scrapper Mike Pyle (19-7-1).
Hard-hitting heavyweights Cheick Kongo (25-6-1) and Travis Browne (10-0) go head-to-head, while Melton-born, California-based James Wilks (8-3) takes on Canadian prodigy Claude Patrick (12-1).
The six preliminary matches feature Curt Warburton (6-1) and Liverpool's Paul Sass, who are making their UFC debuts.
UFC 120 will be screened LIVE on ESPN in the UK and Ireland.
