Conor McGregor sets internet alight with his eggplant ahead of fight with Mayweather (PHOTOS)
Conor McGregor has set the internet alight on Saturday after a very revealing weigh-in ahead of his clash with Floyd Mayweather.
After stripping down to his boxer briefs for the weigh-in, 'Mystic Mac', as McGregor is known, left little to the imagination as he faced off with the undefeated boxing legend known as Money.
Muscles were not the only thing bulging during the spectacular stare-down, with veins visibly popping in McGregor's neck as he screamed in the face of his more composed opponent.
Mayweather wore a special pair of underwear himself - an Irish-green pair branded with PaddyPower and the catchphrase 'Always bet on black'.
The outrageous display sparked a storm of shocked comments on social media, with some users saying they understood the Irishman's willingness to walk around in his underwear.
'McGregor was a little excited during this weigh in,' said one Twitter user. 'McGregor has got a banana in his pants loool how excited is he?!' wrote another.
'Now I get why McGregor left his pants off after the weigh-in #heproud' was another fan's reaction.
McGregor spectacularly defied Floyd Mayweather's prediction that he would fail to make the weight as they came to the scales before their mega-millions extravaganza.
The Notorious weighed in a full pound under the 154lbs weight limit. Mayweather was significantly but expectedly lighter at 149 1/2 lbs.
That put paid to the notion that his training may have been compromised by late, nightly visits to his strip club. McGregor returned to screaming at Mayweather come the stare down.
'He looks like dog s***,' said McGregor of his opponent. 'You know that. He looks blown out. Full of water. He's not going to keep my pace. Trust me on that. That’s the worst shape I’ve ever seen him.'
