Thursday afternoon, tickets for the highly anticipated August 26th boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor went on sale on the T-Mobile Arena website.

While tickets for the event were expected to be extremely expensive, fight fans will be stunned to learn that the cheapest seats in the arena were sold at $2,425, while ringside seats were sold for $79,000 a set. These numbers of course only represent the box office price, which is generally far cheaper than what fans resell the tickets for.

To compare, tickets for the ‘Fight of the Century’ between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao two years ago were initially priced far cheaper than tickets for the Mayweather-McGregor fight. At the time tickets were announced for ‘MayPac’ in 2015, it was revealed that the cheapest seats in the house would go for $1,500, while ringside seats would cost $7,500. After tickets were put up for resale, the cost of floor seats then spiked to $33,000.

This comes just weeks after UFC President Dana White called out a fan on social media who bought fake tickets to the event:

The fight between Mayweather and McGregor of course is of course expected to be the biggest fight in the history of combat sports, and will see both men earn upwards of $100 million for their role in the scrap. That number of course does not factor in the chunk of McGregor’s pay that the UFC will take.
