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 are now up on Stubhub, and it lists the price for nosebleed tickets at a whopping $2166. Seats for the first bowl are going for $5450, while premium floor seating would run you an astounding $20,000 to $79,000 for ringside seats.

Keep in mind though that Stubhub is a secondary market site, and tickets for the event are still not officially on sale. Late last month, Dana White cautioned fans to watch out for fake vendors who were already putting tickets up for sale on scalper sites.

"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."

Tickets probably aren’t on sale yet because there's still a small detail to be cleared up: the Big3 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 that Big3 tickets continue to be sold at the official T-Mobile Arena box office site.

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.
