Why McGregor vs. Mayweather is Losing Steam

  • Pin It

The misconception about this upcoming mega fight between Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather isn’t the fact their WWE-esque type taunting tactics are raising eyebrows and offending those who have thin skin. People think that it could have possibly turned off some people who would have originally purchased tickets or were thinking of purchasing.

The big problem in which so many continue to overlook is the steep price tag just to step into the building.

Forget about watching it on Pay-Per-View, in which you’re putting up $100. Stepping inside the arena and taking a seat will cost a minimum of $1,000!

Yes, this is a once in a lifetime fight. What so many in Mayweather, McGregor, and everyone’s camp don’t seem to realize is that PEOPLE DON’T HAVE THE MONEY.

A fight that may last a minute or two hypothetically will cost fans $175 per 10 seconds if it even lasts a minute. As much as fans would like to see the fight, it’s not as high of a demand as originally thought.

So many fans have to think about making the trek to their local sports bar or a Buffalo Wild Wings to watch a fight that most know will disappoint.

The only result that would satisfy most is a McGregor win.

Ticketmaster and both Mayweather/McGregor’s camps flaunted the biggest flaw in all of their promoting and advertising:

Pricing out the fans.

Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor are the two biggest stars in their respective sports.

They’ll still get their pay day.

Companies like ticketmaster and scumbag scalpers will take the hit because of their greed.

It’s about time.

Yes there are those who have scooped up their $100,000 cageside seats. Those are people with money to burn.

Many of us value our money and aren’t as blessed to be able to blow all of that money.

THAT is what has turned fans off about this fight.
