Where to Watch Mayweather v. McGregor in DC


Two years after the Fight of the Century (Mayweather v. Pacquiao), the next Fight of the Century is coming to Vegas and bars across America on Saturday August 26th.  That night, Floyd Mayweather fights MMA/UFC star Conor McGregor in a clash of two fighting styles (literally). Once again, many folks in DC will be deciding not to pay the $100 for Pay-Per-View and instead go to one of the bars listed below. This post will be continually updated as bars announce plans, add details (including covers), etc. FYI-bars aren’t making a lot of money on the cover; typically bars must pay around $30/person based on max occupancy.
