Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor will be competing in a boxing match against undefeated (49-0) former boxing champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., on August 26 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The fight is on track to break every combat sports record and go down as the biggest sporting event in history.

Not Gonna Be In Vegas?

Unless you plan on being at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and have thousands of dollars to spend on a ticket for the event, your options are limited to purchasing the $100 pay-per-view yourself or with friends or going to a local sports bar.

The Tropicana Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey recently announced another option.

For $49 in advance, you can get tickets to a broadcast of the Mayweather-McGregor bout in the hotel's Grand Exhibition Center. Tickets the day of the event will increase to $75. You must be 21-years of age to attend the event. Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster. The Grand Exhibition Center is located on the fourth floor of the Casino's south tower, located on the city's boardwalk.

The Hype Behind The Hype

The two combatants recently completed a four-day world tour promoting the event that included stops in Los Angeles, Toronto, New York, and London. McGregor, a brash 28-year old from Ireland has won two titles in the UFC inside of a year.

He defeated longtime featherweight champion Jose Aldo in only 13 seconds in December 2015 and then captured the UFC lightweight title by defeating Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in Madison Square Garden in November 2016. McGregor has since been stripped of the featherweight title and has yet to defend his lightweight strap.

McGregor's two non-title fights with Nate Diaz at 170-pounds (in between his title fights) are two of the highest earners for the UFC organization overall.

Mayweather, aptly nicknamed 'Money' is the highest paid boxer the sport has ever seen. He is a five-division champion and highly regarded as the best defensive boxer to ever compete. It is estimated that he has generated more than 19.5 million pay-per-view buys and over $1.3 billion in revenue throughout his career.

Between sponsorships, merchandise sales, pay-per-view points, ticket sales, and contracted salary each competitor has the potential to make hundreds of millions of dollars for their participation in this 12-round affair next month.
