Conor McGregor has finally got himself in shape by weighing in at 153 pounds on Friday, and it is just below the weight limit that is of 154 pounds. On the other hand, Mayweather who is smaller in size and height than McGregor weighed in at 149.5 pounds.
During the event, McGregor was all fired up and said that he would nearly weigh 170 pounds in the ring. To this Mayweather gave a stunning reply, he said, "Weight doesn't win fights, fighting wins fights. It won't go the distance, mark my words. This will be Conor McGregor's last fight also."

We all know what this fight is about, it is money baby! So what are the expected payments for both the fighters? Let us talk about Mayweather first.
