Where to watch McGregor versus Mayweather in Rhode Island


Boxing icon and undefeated world champion Floyd Mayweather will square up against UFC star Conor McGregor for a super-fight on August 26th, one of the most-hyped and anticipated matches of our lifetime that no one believed was possible.

The mega fight, which is taking place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and is being produced and distributed by SHOWTIME PPV, will carry a price tag of $99.95. Cox Communications customers can order it here.

If both prices pack too heavy of a punch, here are several establishments across Rhode Island that will be offering the fight at more favorable prices.

For those looking for a venue in Newport, you’re out of luck. There are no venues that have confirmed with us they’ll be showing the fight, many restaurant owners or managers have told us that because of the higher-than-normal licensing fee (we were told $30 x fire capacity) that the event is too pricey for them to host on an already busy Saturday night.

This list may be updated as more venues are confirmed.
