Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather both made their weight ahead of the most anticipated fight of the year.
And while McGregor skirted very close to the 154lbs weight limit he couldn’t resist one last shouting match before he comes face to face with Mayweather in the ring tonight.
Buoyed by his crowd of fans at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, The Notorious took a few last minute swipes at his rival.

You little bitch! You little short-arse bitch. You ain’t got shit on me, you little short-arse, weak-arse bitch.
I’ll kill you stone dead. Know that! I’m going to make you beg me… I’m going to make you beg me to follow those rules in there. Know that.
Get your hand off me or I’ll break you down right here. 149lbs? You look about 160lbs and all. You’re all blown out. Aaaaagh! Éire! Éire! Éire!

During the stare down Mcgregor continued to berate and taunt his opponent saying Mayweather was ‘full of water’ and in ‘the worst shape [he’d] ever seen’.
By hitting the weight limit McGregor put to bed rumours he was struggling to pass the scale test.
I’m a professional, I make weight. It’s about sacrifices, dedication. It’s focus. I make it and that’s it. I’ve put in the work as everyone can tell. I’m ready.
McGregor’s clearly excited at the prospect of fighting Mayweather, with some fans questioning whether ‘The Notorious’ had a stonk on during the weigh in.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
