Conor McGregor weighs in ahead of Donald Cerrone showdown


Both Conor McGregor and Donald Cerrone weighed in at the welterweight limit ahead of their main event clash on UFC 246.

McGregor, who was stepping onto the scales for the first time since his defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov 15 months ago, came in precisely on the welterweight limit at 170 pounds.

Meanwhile, his opponent Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone also weighed in at 170 pounds, but is expected to hold a weight advantage in the cage on Saturday night.

It will be McGregor’s first non-title fight since 2015, where he knocked-out Dennis Siver and won his third successive ‘performance of the night’ bonus.

Colorado native Cerrone heads into the bout at the T-Mobile arena on the back of two first-round knockout defeats. But ‘Cowboy’ holds the record for the most wins in UFC history and appeared in good shape before the biggest fight of his career.

UFC 246 main card:

Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone – Welterweight

Holly Holm vs Raquel Pennington – Women’s Bantamweight

Aleksei Oleinik vs Maurice Greene – Heavyweight

Claudia Gadelha vs Alexa Grasso – Women’s Strawweight

Anthony Pettis vs Carlos Diego Ferreira – Lightweight
