It appears as if the UFC is taking a page out of the boxing world, rising the price of UFC 168 by a few dollars.
Normally, UFC pay-per-views run $44.99 for standard definition and $54.00 for high-definition. According to a release through several PPV providers, the cost will be $49.95 and $59.99 for the respective broadcasts.
Boxing has done this on a number of occasions, typically when Floyd Mayweather has been in the main event.
The UFC card features two championship matches, as does UFC 169 in early 2014. No report yet if the price change will remain intact for the future.
