The weigh-ins for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor mega-fight are in the books, and they were fairly uneventful. After long walkouts, both men were brought to the stage and introduced. Conor McGregor got on the scale first, weighing in at a stout 153 pounds. Floyd Mayweather Jr. was up next, and after some jostling and yelling by the weigh-in guy to stand still, Floyd was official at 149.5 pounds. Some might think that’s light, but it’s right around what Floyd normally fights at, even when it’s in the 154-pound weight class.
Here is video of the faceoff between the two men:
