Surprise: celebrities showed out en masse for the Floyd Mayweather vs. Manny Pacquiao fight Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The impossibly-hyped bout probably already earned "sports event of the year" honors before it even started, what with the insane ticket prices, crazy issues with pay-per-view providers and ridiculous numbers of private planes coming to Las Vegas.'s live blog has all the action covered and will continue to do so throughout the night. Numerous stories elevated the hype before the fight even began—ESPN reporter Michelle Beadle and CNN Rachel Nichols had their credential applications denied, HBO and Showtime spent the week swatting down illegal streams and much more.

For now, let's see who turned out for the fight.
