A UFC champion and an undefeated boxer walk into a bar... Oh wait, you walk into a bar to watch legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. come out of his semi-retirement to take on brash MMA fighter Conor McGregor in what many are calling the fight of the century (and many are calling a joke). The Irishman has never boxed, but has kicked many an ass in the UFC, so it’s anyone’s guess what’s going to happen -- 40-year-old Floyd keeping his record impeccable, or 29-year-old Conor punching his way to a win.
The odds aren’t in the latter’s favor, but this circus is really a once-in-a-lifetime event, with hundreds of millions of dollars on the line. So, unless you want to stay home and shell out $99 for the pay-per-view broadcast when you can head out to a bar and scream along with a bunch of other serious and casual fight fans at 9pm on Saturday? In order to help you decide where to go, we’ve compiled a list of all the best deals, events, and locations in Dallas to watch McGregor-Mayweather.
