There was not much controversy and drama at the official weigh-ins for UFC 229, as UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and his rival and challenger Conor McGregor both successfully made weight.

The weigh-ins took place on the morning of October 5, one day prior to the UFC 229 pay-per-view event. Longtime rivals Nurmagomedov and McGregor are finally set to clash in a title fight two years in the making. It is considered possibly the biggest fight in UFC history.

As reported by USA Today's MMAJunkie, Nurmagomedov weighed in at the championship weight limit of 155 pounds, while McGregor weighed in at 154.5.

All additional fighters competing on the main card and prelims also made weight.

The Weigh-In

As MMA Fighting states, Nurmagomedov was the first to the scales immediately as the weigh-ins began — 9 AM Pacific time — wasting no time and making his way into the room before some camera crews even began their live broadcasts. While some felt Nurmagomedov looked pale and not all there on the scale, he hit the title weight mark and posed before making a quick exit with no problems.

Despite McGregor not fighting in the UFC for nearly two years, there was more concern over Nurmagomedov's ability to make weight. The undefeated Dagestani UFC champion was forced out one day prior to a March 2017 interim lightweight title fight with Tony Ferguson after a botched weight cut landed him in the hospital.

He also previously missed weight for a May 2013 fight with Abel Trujillo.

McGregor came into the weigh-in room a little over an hour later, got to the scale, and celebrated with a yell and pose with great applause when his weight cut ended in success.

There was some concern when McGregor did not show up within the first hour, but ESPN's Ariel Helwani was told by a member of McGregor's team that the Irish superstar simply "slept in." Some even considered it a possible playing of mind games with Nurmagomedov.

McGregor-Nurmagomedov Rivalry

McGregor and Nurmagomedov have been trading barbs since late 2016.

McGregor, the then-UFC featherweight champ, was given a lightweight title shot at UFC 205 — the MMA promotion's first card at Madison Square Garden. Nurmagomedov felt disrespected and that he should've been awarded the shot.

McGregor went on to win the match and become the UFC's first fighter to ever hold two weight divisions' titles successfully.

McGregor went on to pursue a fight with Floyd Mayweather following the fight, and Nurmagomedov won the UFC Lightweight Title back in April at UFC 223. During that event's fight week lead up, Nurmagomedov's opponent changed several times, with McGregor partially responsible for the drama surrounding that event.

Nurmagomedov and Artem Lobov, a fellow UFC fighter and friend and training partner of McGregor, got into a confrontation, which led to McGregor sneaking into the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and throwing a hand dolly into a bus holding fighters, including Nurmagomedov. McGregor pled guilty to disorderly conduct but faced no jail time for the incident.
