Conor McGregor Looks 'F*****g Massive' After Weighing In At 170lbs For Donald Cerrone Fight

Conor McGregor has tipped the scales at his career heaviest by coming in at 170lbs ahead of his long-awaited UFC return against Donald Cerrone.

The 31-year-old Irishman has been out of the octagon since his devastating defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229 in October 2018.

But McGregor will return to action this Saturday when he clashes with 'Cowboy' Cerrone in a welterweight fight at UFC 246 in Las Vegas.

The UFC superstar, who has been teasing his shredded physique on social media in recent months, was the first fighter to hit the scales.

And McGregor came in at the 170lbs welterweight limit (just over 12st) at 9am local time, which is 10lbs more than he had initially suggested.

But fans have flocked to Twitter and are left speechless by McGregor's physique, with one fan saying he looks "fooking built man."

Earlier this week, McGregor told Ariel Helwani's MMA Show that he was "underweight" and was looking to hit around 160lbs for the fight.

He explained: "I'm underweight right now. I'm underweight. I'd say 160lbs and a bit.

"I know I could have [made Cerrone cut down to lightweight]. But I just don't think he looks well at 155lbs. He does not look well at 155lbs. He's a 170lb fighter.

"Why would I want someone to suffer?

"I don't care. No. I beat him any bleedin' way. I beat him at any weight.

"I beat him if I have the flu. So I don't need that.

"I just want to focus on my training and keep me sharp. You know, I don't have to cut and then build and then cut. I'm happy where I'm at."

The 'Notorious' also showed his true colours during the same interview after calling out fierce rival Floyd Mayweather and touching on his UFC 229 clash with Khabib.
