If you want to see Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor live, you better be ready to pay some serious money.
Want to see how the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor boxing superfight on August 26th plays out live? It’s gonna cost you. Ticket prices for the event just went live on the T-Mobile Arena Box Office site, and it lists the price for nosebleed tickets at a whopping $2425. Seats for the first bowl are going for $6208, while premium floor seating would run you an astounding $22,068 to $79,000 for ringside seats.
There’s not many for sale either. As of this article going up, there are only a few hundred tickets left in the first bowl and nosebleed sections. It’s unclear if many have already been snapped up or if only a limited number of tickets were released for sale through the T-Mobile Arena box office website.
Late last month, Dana White cautioned fans to watch out for fake vendors who were already putting tickets up for sale on secondary market sites.
A fan told me he bought tix already. I want ALL fans to know that we have not even come up with a price for tix yet and tix ARE NOT for sale yet. Don’t get fucked by These DIRTBALLS trying to sell tix already. When we announce tix on sale that’s when it’s real.

“A fan told me he bought tix already,” White wrote. “I want ALL fans to know that we have not even come up with a price for tix yet and tix ARE NOT for sale yet. Don’t get fucked by These DIRTBALLS trying to sell tix already. When we announce tix on sale that’s when it’s real.”
Strangely enough, tickets went on sale through the T-Mobile box office quietly without any big announcement from White or other promoters attached to the fight. Maybe because there’s still a small detail to be cleared up: the Big 3 basketball tournament being held in the building on the same date hasn’t officially been moved yet. And while Dana White has made assurances with the media that a deal will get done, it’s a bit disconcerting being able to buy tickets to both events when they both obviously can’t happen on the same day at the same venue.
Still, this is less ticket drama than Mayweather vs. Pacquiao, where only a handful of tickets were released a mere two weeks before the fight, leaving thousands of fight fans who had already booked trips to Vegas without a way to watch the fight live.
