McGregor clocked in at 168 pounds, as he moves up two divisions to face Nate Diaz (169) in the UFC 196 main event on Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. Women’s bantamweight champion Holly Holm (134.5) and challenger Miesha Tate (135) also met the contracted weight requirements for their assignment in the co-headliner at Friday’s official weigh-in.
