The Money Fight begins shortly at 9pm EST on Saturday, August 26, 2017, and you're not sitting down with a ticket in T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, there are options for you to watch the Floyd Mayweather Jr. try to bring his incredible winning streak to 50-0 versus the unexpected challenger Conor McGregor who hails from an MMA background in the UFC.
Since tickets to the event ran upwards of thousands of dollars, Showtime's (who has exclusive rights to the fight) pay per view pricing seems reasonable by comparison if you're not paying an entry fee at a sports bar. And trust us - it'll be packed everywhere tonight! Here are a few options to watch the big fight at home and/or with family and friends!

Are there other ways to watch the Mayweather vs McGregor fight?
You know it. Just search social media for unauthorized livestreams, most notably from Periscopes being shared on Twitter like this one or this one - each getting thousands of live viewers and some even streaming in HD.
The other way is setting up a digital livestream through something like Kodi but that's for the advanced, risk-seeking user and will take some time to setup if you're not familiar. Here are some tips to setting that up for online viewing. If you're not paying for it, what you're doing is probably illegal!
