The UFC 229 official weigh-ins are complete, and everyone has made weight, most importantly Saturday night’s headliners — Khabib Nurmagomedov and Conor McGregor.

Khabib was the first on the scale and came in at 155 lbs for his UFC lightweight title defense. McGregor had no reported weight cut issues but was third-to-last to weigh-in anyway, and he weighed 154.5 lbs before letting out a primal scream.

Submission Radio is on hand to capture everything throughout this historic fight week, and you can watch video of McGregor’s weigh-in in the clip below.

The two men will meet and faceoff at the ceremonial weigh-ins later today at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. They were supposed to faceoff at Thursday’s press conference, but Khabib wasn’t interested in waiting for McGregor to arrive.
