The eagerly anticipated fight – which will be McGregor’s professional boxing debut – will take place on August 26 at the T-Mobile Arena and fans are already desperate to secure their spot at the marquee event.
But after being informed that fans had already started snapping up tickets, White published a short statement on his Instagram page clarifying the ticket situation.
He insisted that tickets were not yet on sale – and that pricing has not even been discussed yet.
“A fan told me he bought six tickets already,” White wrote along with a picture of a booking confirmation for two tickets priced at £1,800 each.
“I want all fans to know that we have not even come up with a price for tickets yet and that tickets are not for sale yet.
“Don't get f*cked by these dirtballs trying to sell tickets already.
“When we announce tickets on sale – that’s when it's real.”
19,000 tickets for that fight were handed out to sponsors, promoters, TV executives and celebrities, meaning that just 1,000 ended up going on general sale.
