1. The bout will be fought at 154 pounds
Dana White announced that the fight will be set at 154lbs, and that the fighters will wear 10oz gloves. Mayweather has had many fights at that weight, so he’ll be comfortable, but the announcement was also a positive for McGregor. “Notorious” has had UFC fights at 155lbs, so he has experience there, but it also means he won’t have to cut a crazy amount of weight for the fight. Had the fight been set at 147lbs, the fighters would have had to fight with 8oz gloves—that extra padding could be the difference in having knockout power or not. Either way, this is going to be one hell of an entertaining matchup.
