McGregor piled on more than a stone in weight in the hours before the fight with Mayweather. At Friday’s weigh-in he tipped the scales at 153lb — just under the 154lb limit for the contest. Then he started to refuel and rehydrate so that he claimed he was back to his ideal “fighting weight” of 170lb before entering the ring. McGregor reached the 154lb weigh-in limit by drinking little water over several days and not eating carbohydrates.
McGregor weighs-in at 153 pounds, one pound under weight, and 3.5 pounds heavier than Mayweather.
He looks like dogsh*t. Blown up. Full of water. That’s the worst shape I’ve ever seen him. I’m gonna breeze through. 153! I’m a professional. I make weight…I put in the work, as everyone can tell… I’ll be a lot bigger [when I get into the ring]. [I’ll be] 170. You can’t beat us. We roll in and we take over. Las Vegas is Ireland now…I won’t go nowhere other than the center of the ring. So let’s see who can take it. He’s over there twiddling his thumbs…I see a man afraid.
Mayweather weighs in at 149.5 pounds, 4.5 pounds underweight.
I’ve been here before. I know what it takes. He did a lot of [talking] but tomorrow it comes down to the fighters. Weight doesn’t win fights. Fighting wins fights…It won’t go the distance. Mark my words…I just want to thank the fans. The will become the greatest last fight also…The fans can’t fight for you. It comes down to the two competitors. 49 times I went out there it was one on one.

At the UFC 210 early morning weigh-in, Cormier requires two attempts to make weight. Cormier initially weighs 206.2-pounds, which would have likely caused his fight with Johnson to become a non-title bout. However, the New York State Athletic Commission allows Cormier a second attempt, where he weighs in at 205-lbs, losing almost a pound and a half in a few minutes. NYSAC officials deny Cormier was pushing down on towels to disperse his weight.
