Conor McGregor has come in two pounds underweight for his bout with Nate Diaz. He stepped on the scales at 168 pounds, while Diaz weighed in at 170.5.

Due to the new weight cut rules official weigh-ins are now held in the morning prior to the fight to allow fighters ample time to rehydrate prior to their bouts. As a result we now get the actual weight announcements before the televised weigh-ins and face-off.

Despite the two pound disadvantage, McGregor is looking better physically from the first time he and Diaz met. This is due in part to having ample time to bulk up from his normal 145 pound weight division.
