UFC 178 weigh ins are complete (see video), the loudest cheer of the night was for Conor McGregor. Although slotted in as the third from last fight, and the headline being a title fight, McGregor vs Poirier is by far the most anticipated bout of the evening. The highlight of the event was probably McGregor trying to steal the moment by posing off next to Poirier while he was weighing in, certainly something I had never seen before.
Watching the fighters weigh in always helps build excitement and anticipation for the event, there was a large live crowd in attendance and they really got behind the fighters. Zingano and Nunes had an intense stare-down, along with McGregor and Poirier who had to be marshalled to avoid any confrontation.
