August 26 marks what may well turn out to be the biggest boxing match in history. It's certainly one of the most hyped fights in recent memory. And if "The Money Fight" between MMA megastar and current UFC Lightweight Champion Conor "The Notorious One" McGregor and undefeated 11-time 5-division professional boxing world champion Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr.,  lives up to its nickname, it may prove to the most lucrative fight ever.

But for one of the fighters involved, August 26 marks the start of a new job.

When McGregor and Mayweather face each other in the ring, after punches have been thrown, once either The Notorious One or Money has been declared the winner in either spectacular fashion or by decision, only one job will be done for McGregor. After The Money Fight is over and Mayweather most likely goes back into retirement, McGregor begins his new job with Wynn nightlife.

McGregor has signed an exclusive two-year, four-party agreement to be a post-fight nightclub party host. The Irish fighting phenom will host the parties at Encore Beach Club (and by extension Surrender) and XS Nightclub between August 26 and a date to be determined in 2019. Head to Ticketfly and you'll see that tickets for the post-fight night pool party are available now for between $20 and $75.

The Money Fight has now given bar and nightclub operators more than an epic combat sports event around which to build a promotion. Nightclub residencies, traditionally the exclusive arena of DJs and musicians, have now been extended to a high-profile "nightclub host." It's apparent that operators and managers should consider celebrities of all levels and local or online influencers for hosting residencies.
