For those making the pilgrimage to the Mecca of Boxing for the upcoming mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor, it may be wise to plan more Las Vegas entertainment than simply the proposed 12- rounds of fighting between a 40-year-old boxer and a veteran MMA practitioner — as the general consensus from most is that the entire fight is going to be one big snoozefest.

Luckily, Las Vegas is specially equipped to provide adult entertainment that fills similar urges for those who enjoy getting dressed to the nines to watch two men beat each other bloody.

On the same August 26 day of Mayweather vs. McGregor, several high-profile acts have already been booked to resurrect any hurt feelings for those who may have shelled out $3,500 for the cheapest seat in the house or a whopping $10,000 USD for a more primo place to park one's keister.

As OutKast's Big Boi put it so eloquently, "Las Vegas is gonna win."

If you find yourself in Las Vegas and in need of entertainment, here are the best parties happening for Mayweather vs. McGregor.

Hakkasan

Who: Travis Scott

The Hakkasan nightclub inside the MGM Grand is certainly no stranger to high-profile performers thanks to a stacked roster of regulars like Tiesto, Calvis Harris, Steve Aoki and Zedd.

However, the normally EDM-fueled crowd will get a hip-hop makeover with a headlining performance by Travis Scott.

The "Goosbumps" emcee is well aware of fight occurring that night. When Mayweather and McGregor embarked on their four-city promotional tour, he tweeted a video of the Irishman gifting Floyd with a copy of JAY-Z's 4:44 album.

He also notably appeared on the Young Thug song, "Floyd Mayweather" alongside Gucci Mane and Gunna.

Marquee

Who: DJ Mustard

When Roc Nation had their inaugural boxing event in New York City in 2015, they tasked DJ Mustard with being one of the highest-profile signees to perform.

"It's the first Roc Nation Sports boxing event, it's going down at Madison Square Garden, and I'm DJing," he said at the time. "It should be a big event. There hasn't been nothing like this. Just to be a part of something that's just starting, it's perfect for me."

He has been vocal in the past about his admiration for Mayweather's fighting prowess, mentioning that he watches all of his fights.

It seems only right that he will be in Vegas to perform at the Consmopolitan's Marquee Dayclub as he gives fight fans the perfect way to kick off fight weekend.

The LIGHT

Who: Rick Ross

Rick Ross and Floyd Mayweather were once sworn enemies after a feud escalated between the Miami rapper and 50 Cent — with whom Mayeather used to have a strong relationship with.

Ross went so far as to diss Mayweather on wax in the song "Go," stating, "Fuck Floyd Mayweather" while also discussing his troubles with the IRS in "Mafia Music."

In response, Mayweather hit back, saying, "“[His] stats and credentials don’'t rhyme. One minute he said he wasn’t a CO or cop, next minute he is. “He can learn how to get money from me. If he’'s a cop and rapping about selling drugs, I guess he was a dirty cop! You know me, I’m not ducking and dodging no one, it’s not hard to find me. I’m in Miami all the time, Atlanta, everywhere.”"

Despite the tension, they inevitably solved their differences and Rick Ross went so far as to accompany Mayweather out during his weigh-in for his fight against Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

While there is no indication that Ross will once again be involved in Mayweather's movements before and after the right, he will be in town performing at The LIGHT at Mandalay Bay.

Drai's

Who: Chris Brown

There was a time not too long ago when Chris Brown found his name in the news for a proposed boxing match against Soulja Boy which ultimately resulted in more verbal barbs than punches thrown even though Brown went so far as to enlist Mike Tyson as his trainer and Soulja Boy opted for Floyd Mayweather.

Despite the cancellation of the rap world's version of a "super fight," Brown will be in town to perform at Drai's Nightclub inside The Cromwell Las Vegas which boasts a 70,000+ square-foot rooftop with 150 VIP tables, eight pools, two VIP balconies, four bars and over 7,000 square feet of state-of-the-art digital LED screens.

XS Nightclub

Who: The Chainsmokers

The XS Nightclub inside the Wynn is getting in on the fight-night hysteria courtesy of a performance by The Chainsmokers who certainly know how to draw a raucous crowd based on the fact that the duo are currently the third highest paid DJ's in the world after earning a cool $38 million USD in 2017.

Rehab Beach Club

Who: Diddy

For those wanting a little Vitamin D before entering the T Mobile Arena that night, Diddy will satiate the sun starved with an appearance at the Rehab Beach Club at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Diddy and Mark Wahlberg most notably offered a high-stakes wager when Mayweather took on Manny Pacquaio with them agreeing on a $250,000 bounty to the winner.

Encore Beach Club at Surrender

Who: Conor McGregor

Win or lose, Conor McGregor will be making an appearance at the Encore Beach Club where those wanting to drop thousands of dollars to party with the UFC star will be able to if you have $4,500 USD for a cabana or $11,000 for the premium lower bungalow.

If it's anything like what the experience post-UFC 202, those in attendance shouldn't leave disappointed.
