Ladies and gentlemen, we have a main event.
Conor McGregor’s 15 month hiatus from the Octagon is just hours from expiring after both men involved in the UFC 246 main event successfully made weight at the early weigh-ins at the Park Theatre in Las Vegas on Friday.
Both McGregor and Cerrone tipped the scales on the welterweight championship limit of 170-pounds. This is perhaps notable as the Dubliner, who has spoken of his interest in potentially challenging Kamaru Usman for the UFC welterweight title this year, also made championship weight for several of his featherweight contests in the UFC prior to his first shot at the gold.
It also represents the heaviest weight that McGregor has ever registered on a UFC scale, two pounds more than the 168-pounds he registered for his UFC 202 bout with Nate Diaz in 2016.
