For those of us who would love to see the upcoming McGregor fight in Vegas, you better go and buy some lottery tickets, because the match night ticket prices have skyrocketed.
In case some of our readership slipped and fell into a cave, there is a huge comeback fight coming up against the Russian powerhouse Khabib Nurmagomedov. This will be happening in Vegas at the T-Mobile Arena. Prices for tickets start at a tick over $200 and then then skyrocket up to nearly $3000. All depending on where you sit of course, but if you want some of that delicious McGregor sweat all over your new Gucci jacket, then you'll be paying the price.
Tickets will hit the market in the next few days and punters are digesting the new ticket price information very harshly. Twitter is ablaze with outrage and disappointment, which mind you, is not unusual for a place such as Twitter.
Despite the outrage, the tickets will most likely be sold out very quickly at these astonishingly high prices. Many will travel from both Ireland and Russia for the big fight, meaning the total cost of attending the evening events will mean a second mortgage for many.

How does it Rank in History?
Many online outlets are quick to compare this fight to some of Muhammad Ali's famous fights, including that of the 1971 fight against Joe Frazier. That fight was dubbed at 'The Fight of the Century' as both boxers have zero loses to their names. Frazier was next in line to the throne while Ali had been out of boxing for nearly three years after refusing military draft.
