Planning on going to Las Vegas to watch the Manny Pacuqiao-Floyd Mayweather Jr. fight on May 2 and don't have a ticket? Better make sure you stay at an MGM-owned hotel.

TMZ Sports is reporting that MGM will not allow any other hotel, bar, restaurant, casino, you name it to show the fight.

MGM has 14 properties in Vegas and TMZ Sports quotes a rival hotel source as saying, "We aren't able to air the fight, that's true. And our guests won't be able to have it in-room either. It's a contract the MGM has. Unfortunately, it blacks out non-MGM properties."

So get a room at the right hotel or shell out upward of $10,000 for a ticket to the fight, or you will be out of luck.
