Get Ready To Spend! White Reveals #MayMac’s Jacked Up Pay-Per-View Price

Fights fans are going to have to pay more than they are used to in order to watch the boxing match between Floyd “Money” Mayweather and UFC Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor.

UFC President Dana White discussed the price of the Mayweather vs. McGregor pay-per-view during Wednesday’s conference call.

“When you talk about superfights, this is a superfight. Two different guys from two different sports going in and putting it on the line. You can’t charge what you normally charge for a pay-per-view, I get it. And saying there was pushback on the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao superfight? There was anything but, it was the biggest fight ever in the history of PPV. And as much of a clusterfuck as I said the ticket situation was, people were rabid for those tickets. I bought 10 tickets for that fight, that’s the worst thing about it.

Showtime is the exclusive distributor of Floyd’s fights, but they were kind enough to open the gates and let us do some stuff too. We’re gonna do UFC Embedded like we do for our fights and a couple other things. But at the end of the day, Showtime is running this show. I’m gonna promote it through all of my inventory and everything I’m doing, but as far as actually producing TV shows, Showtime is the exclusive … but they’ve been kind and opened the window to let us have fun and do some things too.”

Showtime sold the Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao boxing fight for $100 on pay-per-view. Mayweather vs. McGregor is expected to be around the same price.
