Ben, a lifelong MMA fan, purchased tickets to his first event! The Big Show was bringing an action-packed card, and Ben couldn’t wait to fill the stands, even if all he could afford was a seat in the rafters.
Walking into the stadium, he gripped his ticket as if it were as precious as gold.

The next time The Big Show rolled into town, Ben was fine watching from home.
