    They just announced the Conor McGregor UFC fight will be held on October 6th, which just so happens to be the weekend of our guys trip to Vegas. We aren't big UFC fans, but we likely want to watch this fight. Do any casinos set up closed-circuit viewing parties for big UFC fights? If not, any suggestions for bars that may show the fight? I am fairly certain the sportsbooks won't be showing it, but I could be wrong. We are staying at Aria if that matters. Thanks!

    MGM usually has invitation partys in the ballrooms they set up screens, sportsbooks wont have it....stripclubs and off strip places usually sell package deals but if its a huge fight, you gotta book early

    I think the sportsbook bar at The palazzo usually does fights closed circuit. Around $60 a person if I remember correct. Last time I was going to one, at Madalay bay at the pool. Same thing, around $60 to get in

    Not bad if food and drink are involved. How much could tickets be for decent seats? And it’s mcgregor. Is this going to involve a bus and a chair and a grand entrance and all that?

    I've been to the IFW card 4x in the last 6 years, and everytime since they moved to T-Mobile, and tickets for McGregor cards are usually around double what they are for normal events.

    I've had exactly the same seating* for the last 3 years, so can base it off that. My tickets were ~$700 in 2016 when Conor was supposed to be fighting Diaz, and ~$350 in 2017/18.

    *This was for sections 5/7/17

    The cost of f&b is extortionate inside the arena, but I half expected that anyway.

    Given what transpired in NY, I'd imagine security will be doubled, and he'll be on his best behaviour. However, both sets of fans will cause absolute mayhem, I would think.

    I did have to resist booking up a quick 7 day trip, but thought better of it, and will save myself for IFW next year.
