Current UFC lightweight champion of the world Conor McGregor will take his talents to the squared circle tonight in Las Vegas where he will attempt to upset undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather.
“Mystic Mac” and “Money” both comfortably made weight yesterday evening in Las Vegas, with the American weighing in at 149.5 pounds and the Irishman at 153 pounds.
After making weight for their 154-pound super-fight, Mayweather and McGregor would engage in one final pre-fight staredown.
The always brash Irish superstar peppered Mayweather with insults during the staredown but “Money” seemed unfazed by McGregor’s antics.
Following the completion of yesterday’s ceremonial weigh ins, Floyd Mayweather took to Twitter where he threw shade at “Mystic Mac” for his antics during the staredown.
