Mayweather vs. McGregor: Floyd says Conor still ‘extremely heavy’ leading up to weigh-in

Floyd Mayweather says Conor McGregor is still about 10lbs over the weight limit with just a few days to go.

In this video interview with FightHype, Floyd Mayweather tells Conor McGregor, Dana White, the UFC, anybody to get his fine money ready as Conor McGregor is still ‘extremely heavy’ leading up to Friday’s official weigh in. The two are slated to fight at a contracted 154lbs.

“Conor McGregor is extremely heavy right now,” Mayweather said. “I think he’s 164, so he’s still got 10 pounds to go. I mean ya’ll get that extra money if you can’t make the weight. Get them extra millions ready, Dana!

“Or the UFC, get them extra millions ready, um, or somebody gotta pay a fine. But he gotta get that weight down. A true champion, you know, like I said before, a true champion is disciplined and very responsible. But, you know, we’ll see.

“...I don’t think he’s gonna make the weight. Even if he do make the weight, that’s even better. But if he don’t make the weight, we still gonna fight but it’s gonna be a heavy fine, I’ma get me that money!”
