Nurmagomedov was the first fighter to take the scales, hitting 155 lbs on the nose. McGregor checked in much later, but well in advance of the 2 p.m. ET deadline for his official weight check. He hit his mark with room to spare.

Anthony Pettis, who's fighting Tony Ferguson in another lightweight bout and the co-main event, was the final combatant to take the stage. He also came in below his limit, finalizing all 12 fights on Saturday's card in Las Vegas.
