If you want to fly out to Las Vegas this October and see UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov put his title on the line against pay-per-view (PPV) king Conor McGregor, now might be a good time to start saving.
According to a recent report by Bloody Elbow (per an official UFC representative), UFC 229: ‘Khabib vs. McGregor’ tickets will go on sale next week. And by looking at the information provided, it’s going to cost fight fans a pretty penny to catch the action live.
Check out below to find out when you can purchase tickets to 2018’s biggest fight and how deep of a hole it will burn in your pocket:

That’s too rich for my blood, how about you?
If you have this type of money lying around it could be worth it to splurge and see this October 6th showdown firsthand. Not for nothing, but Khabib and McGregor have been on a high-speed collision course ever since McGregor moved up to 155 pounds two years ago. Their feud even led to McGregor trashing a Brooklyn bus this past April to get to Khabib, so you better believe the actual fight will produce worthwhile fireworks.
UFC president Dana White is already pegging this as the biggest PPV in company history, so you might want to clear your schedule next week if you plan to buy these tickets before they’re gone.
