Last night's weigh-in produced some priceless moments as we look towards the biggest night in Conor McGregor's UFC career.

Between fans serenading Holly Holm and asking her to join them for a 12 pub session, it was theatrical to say the least. And on the business side of things, both McGregor and Aldo clocked up a perfect 145Ib result when they popped on to the scales. 

But, as expected, relations between 'The Notorious' and Aldo were visibly frosty and fraught. Before taking to the stage, the pair were seen goading each other, and UFC President Dana White had to intervene when they stood for the face-off after the weigh-in.

And the tension followed the fighters as they departed the scene. Some footage has emerged of McGregor exchanging verbals with a contingent of Jose Aldo fans, suggesting that this is all out warfare.

The feud will finally be settled when the door shuts in the octagon tonight. Check out this podcast from Henry McKean to whet your appetite for the big fight coming up tonight.
