Not willing to shell out into the thousands of dollars to see Conor McGregor box Floyd Mayweather next month in Las Vegas? Would you settle for seeing the fight on the silver screen?

“The Money Fight” will be available in select movie theaters through a partnership with Fathom Events and Mayweather Promotions, the organizations announced Monday.

Fathom Events has hosted quite a few UFC pay-per-views in theaters in the past, but most recently with UFC 188, and got back into the fight game with the Bellator: NYC pay-per-view in June.

The Mayweather (49-0 boxing) vs. McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) boxing match takes place Aug. 26 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view, priced at either $89.95 for standard definition or $99.95 for HD. It is expected to challenge for the title of biggest pay-per-view in history.

Tickets for the viewing opportunity in theaters can be purchased through Fathom Events or participating theaters, and prices will vary – though most are around $40 per ticket for adults. A complete list of theater locations is available at Fathom Events’ website.

“The buzz that my fight against Conor McGregor is getting has been great already, so what better way to watch this larger-than-life event than on the big screen?” Mayweather stated. “We brought boxing back to movie theaters eight years ago and it was a huge success, but this event is on a different level and I’m so glad we are giving fans another way to see all the action. Grab your popcorn because this is a fight no one will want to miss.”
