Came down from Brisbane to see the UFC. The venue is very clean and easy to navigate. Prices are high for food and drinks, but that's expected in these venues. Seats were comfortable enough. Staff were friendly.

Sorry Nikita, I haven't sat in that section on any occasion I've been there, but i don't think any seat would have an obstruction as there are no internal columns in the seating area.
