Some Dude Fooled Everyone And Got Free Ringside Seats To The Mayweather-McGregor Fight
Ringside seats for this weekend’s Mayweather-McGregor fight were selling for anywhere between $20k to $80k but one British bro with balls of steel was able to fake his way into snagging one for himself for free.
Conor McGregor superfan Oliver Regis, who has a tattoo of the UFC star imprinted on his leg, had bought a $2,500 ticket for the highly anticipated fight but found his seat was at the top of the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Regis then took matter into his own hands and posed as Mayweather’s security team until he got ringside and was able to secure a seat for himself.
He pretended to be with Floyd Mayweather Jr’s security team and shadowed them past security – who he claims failed to scan his ticket, which would have exposed him.
Oliver, from Stamford, Lincs., then plonked himself down in the third row – right next to the ring during the bout before McGregor’s.
The pint puller told The Sun: “I did feel a bit cheeky – but this was a once-in-a-lifetime chance. I could not believe it worked.
“There were quite a few empty seats.
“I sat down in the third row and Mike Tyson then sat down behind me. LeBron James was on my row and I could see Leonardo DiCaprio.”
While at ringside Regis took plenty of pics with the celebrities around him.
