Floyd Mayweather (49-0, 26 KOs) and Conor McGregor (21-3, 18 KOs) will fight on Saturday, August 26, at 9 p.m. ET in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Viewers who want to share the experience with other viewers can go to several sports bars/restaurants and pay a cover charge (usually around $20 for each person – e.g. Buffalo Wild Wings) or head over to a movie theater (e.g. Fathom Events, Cinemark) to join the crowd. Look for specials on food and services at restaurants for an even better experience.
Hope your wallet is not too light after the fight…looks like British fight fans get the best deal using Sky Sports (http://www.skysports.com/mayweather-vs-mcgregor) at £19.95 (about $25.71 USD).
