The card is expected to be priced closer to a typical Mayweather boxing pay-per-view, with Mayweather Promotions and Showtime handling the majority of that end.

Mayweather will be coming out of retirement for the bout, as the 40-year-old retired with an unblemished mark of 49-0. McGregor is 21-3 in MMA, but has yet to compete as a pro in boxing. He is the reigning UFC lightweight champion and was the first fighter to hold titles in multiple weight classes when he defeated Eddie Alvarez.
