Just over 24 hours remain until the big "Fight Night" hitting the Las Vegas Strip.

On Saturday, Aug. 26, boxing champ Floyd Mayweather Jr. will take on UFC lightweight champ Conor McGregor at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Plenty of hype has surrounded the fight on social media, including a fun video from a Las Vegas YouTuber.

Matt Oliveira, a 25-year-old flight attendant from Las Vegas, documents his travels around the world on his Molives TV YouTube channel and Facebook page.

In his latest video, Oliveira dressed as McGregor and "ran" from the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland -- McGregor's home country -- to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas -- Mayweather's home city and the site of the big fight.

In the video, Oliveira said that in his 24 hours as McGregor in Ireland, he would:

  1. Get the McGregor haircut
  2. Workout like McGregor
  3. Dress like McGregor
  4. Eat like McGregor
  5. Get a McGregor tattoo
  6. Run across Ireland like McGregor

He documented those tasks, even making it to the Guinness Factory in Dublin and adopting a bit of an Irish accent throughout the video.

The big fight is expected to be watched by as many as 50 million people in the United States as many gather for small and large watch parties where they can view the bout on Pay-Per-View.

Those who wish to see it in person can still get tickets that are available at T-Mobile Arena. Prices originally ranged from $2,500 in the upper sections to $10,000 at ringside, but some resale markets are showing some tickets as low as $1,300.

The fight's main card is expected to begin at 9 p.m. Eastern / 6 p.m. Pacific.
