McGregor, Alvarez Make Weight
While weight-cut woes and last-minute cancellations have plucked a few fights from the stacked UFC 205 card, the main attraction will remain in tact. Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez — as well as the other title fight competitors — successfully made weight on Friday morning.
Shortly after the official weigh-ins began at 9 AM, Alvarez and then McGregor stepped on the scales a little under the 155 lb. weight limit.

One interesting moment came shortly after McGregor weighed in, when he came face to face with welterweight champion Tyron Woodley at the rehydration table. Woodley greeted McGregor, who seemed to stare the welterweight champ down and offer a slight flex of his muscles:

While a relatively minor moment, McGregor’s staredown seemed to be a result of Woodley’s recent comments that the "Notorious One" should think twice before coming up to welterweight if he wants a third belt.
Woodley, Stephen Thompson, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Karolina Kowalkiewicz all made weight as well, making the card’s three title fights official.
The ceremonial weigh-ins will take place this afternoon and will be streamed live on Fight Sports.
