Conor McGregor once said:
“I’ve an unhealthy obsession with spending money, but I have a healthy obsession with making it.”
If you were planning on heading to Vegas for his fight against Floyd Mayweather, you must share that sentiment.
It’s being called the biggest money fight of all-time and if the prices of tickets are anything to go by, it certainly lives up to that moniker. The money involved here is nothing short of frightening.
When Floyd Mayweather steps into the ring to take on Conor McGregor on August 26 all the sporting world will be watching, but some people will have much better vantage points than others.
However, those better views will not come cheap. Prepare to be absolutely astonished by the price of tickets for the event. We’ve attached a map, for a better view of the craziness involved.
If you decide that you want to make your way to Vegas for the big night, you better prepare for your bank balance to be hit as hard as one of Conor McGregor’s victims.
Mayweather vs McGregor Ticket Prices
The cheapest (HA, “CHEAP” should not exist anywhere in this sentence or article) are up for grabs for $2,425. These seats are located in the upper echelons of the stadium. The seats in this area go right up to $5,268. That’s the most expensive nose bleed you’ll ever get.
Suddenly the pay-per-view prices are looking very reasonable.
If you’d prefer to be in the lower area, you can grab tickets from $4,996. You can get seats in a slightly better area (dark orange) from $12,808 to $17,586. The seats mentioned above were the “reasonable prices.” Prepare to be utterly amazed…
The burgundy area on the map – those seats start at $22,504 and go as high as $80k. You read that correctly – in McGregor’s own words “EIGHTY-Gs-BABY” (although McGregor did say 60, you know what we mean!).
If you have even more money hanging around, you can get into the premium ringside area, where tickets rise to almost $100k a pop.
So there you have it – if you have $100k spare you can get a seat at McGregor v Mayweather… or, you could feed a family of six for around three years… but it’s your money!
To put these prices in perspective, only a select few fighters in the UFC would earn the amount of money it takes to get a ringside ticket in one of their fights. If actual UFC fighters can’t afford to go to it, there’s little chance the rest of us mere mortals can, unless we’re rolling in the dough.
Crazy money for a crazy fight.
