Conor McGregor's nutritionist said Thursday that the UFC Lightweight champion will have no problem making weight Friday for his 154-pound boxing clash with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Saturday.

According to ESPN.com's Brett Okamotonutritionist George Lockhart believes McGregor is right where he needs to be: "It's perfect. I'd even call it a masterpiece. He woke up this morning eight pounds over weight. He'll get down to maybe 156 pounds by tonight. I'm pretty sure he'll wake up on weight tomorrow. If he does have to cut, it will be two pounds, max."
