5 things that cost $100 that are better than Mayweather vs. Pacquiao

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Everyone in the world looked forward to Mayweather vs. Pacquaio, and it was a disappointment. We should have known it could never live up to the hype. Going to a decision was thoroughly disappointing, but we should have known better.

Either way, enjoy.

Waring Pro deep-fryer, $99.85

Buy a person a fight, they're entertained for a night. Buy them a deep-fryer, and they're entertained for a life time. You knew all the best bits of this fight were going to be on YouTube and Vine by the end of the night, but a screen cannot prepare you fish and chips.

Mortal Kombat X - Premium Edition, $89.99

Why did you watch the fight? Probably for the bloodlust, if you're being completely honest with yourself. You can either pretend it's just for the sport, or embrace that part of your mind and just play Mortal Kombat X. There aren't many games in which you can rip a person's jaw off, take a selfie, and post that to a fake version of Facebook. This game has that.

Fire HD 7, $99

Is it the best tablet? No. Is it the best cheap tablet? Pretty much, yes. This costs EXACTLY AS MUCH AS THE FIGHT and you have a freaking tablet when it's all said and done. What did the fight leave you with? Regret? Thought so.
