The greatest battle of the year has at last gotten its compensation per see valuing breakdown sorted out, and UFC president Dana White was correct when he said the estimating would be like "the Pacquiao cost". The battle between once resigned veteran boxing star Floyd Mayweather and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor is set to go down on August 26th and has been named the second "Battle of the Century" by fans and media alike.
White has assessed that the session could draw more than 5 million pay for every view buys, setting up both Mayweather and McGregor to bring home a flat out truckload of money. The session amongst Mayweather and Pacquiao back in May of 2015 saw over $400 million gotten in income, with Mayweather bringing home about $220 million all up. Considering Mayweather brought home the bigger pay bundle, it appears we will see history rehash itself. The amount McGregor will be left with by the day's end is impossible to say at this stage, without any subtle elements set to be discharged.
The standard definition variant of the battle on August 26th is set to cost $89.95, while the HD adaptation will set you back a cool $99.95 as indicated by Madelyn Flax, the representative for Showtime. That may sting a little in case you're a general blended combative technique fan, where pay per sees tend to cost around $50 to $60 for standard and top quality forms, yet for a battle of this extent you can simply make certain the compensation per see costs will be raised a bit.
"When you discuss super battles, this is a super battle – two diverse folks from two unique games going in and putting it hanging in the balance," said White. "Clearly, you can't charge what you would typically charge for a compensation for every view. What's more, saying there was pushback on the Mayweather-Pacquiao battle, there was definitely not – it's the greatest battle ever per-see."
The session will happen at the T-Mobile Arena, with advancement starting on Tuesday in LA, at that point Toronto, New York and London will take after consistently.
