LAS VEGAS – “The Money Fight” is officially all systems go.

Before a raucous crowd today at T-Mobile Arena, Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor stepped on the scale and met the required 154-pound weight limit. As expected, McGregor came in as the heavier man.

Mayweather weighed in at 149 1/2 pounds, while McGregor was 153.

Both fighters took slow strolls to the stage. McGregor, draped in the Irish flag, walked out to “Hypnotized” by The Notorious B.I.G. Mayweather, meanwhile, entered the arena to “In The Air Tonight” by Phil Collins. The crowd was heavily in favor of the UFC lightweight champion.

McGregor, at one point, had to be restrained while Mayweather was on the scale. When they faced off, McGregor could be seen yelling the entire time as a stoic Mayweather stayed silent.

“He’s not going to keep my pace. Trust me,” McGregor said on stage. “That’s the worst shape I’ve ever seen him in.”

McGregor added that he expects to be near 170 when the bell rings.

McGregor (21-3 MMA, 9-1 UFC) and Mayweather (49-0 boxing) face off Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a pay-per-view event expected to be the most lucrative prize fight of all time.
