The upcoming fight between Floyd 'Money' Mayweather and Conor McGregor is set to go down on August 26th.
You can purchase the fight on pay-per-view for ..... $89.95 for standard def and $99 for HD.
UFC President Dana White discussed the increase in price-point for the fight for MMA fans used to paying roughly $59.
“When you talk about superfights, this is a superfight – two different guys from two different sports going in and putting it on the line.” He continues, “Obviously, you can’t charge what you would normally charge for a pay-per-view. And saying there was pushback on the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight, there was anything but – it’s the biggest fight ever in the history of pay-per-view."
According to ESPN's Daren Rovell, the fight is projected to generate $475 million in pay-per-view sales.
Hot damn that's a lot of money.
