Both McGregor and Mayweather requested that they be able to wear the lighter gloves, instead of 10-ounce gloves for their August 26th bout, and the commission approved. In addition, the referee and the judges have been confirmed for their massive fight.
The UFC lightweight champ posted the comments below on Instagram, following the Nevada Commission’s meeting:
I am very pleased with the Nevada State Athletic Commission's handling of my next bout today. Fair play was kept all the way through. Referee – Hall of famer Robert Byrd. Judges – Burt Clements. Dave Morreti and Guido Cavalerri. 8oz gloves approved. With pre and post fight analysis of the gloves on the night. This was handled very well and very fairly by the NSAC. I am very pleased and respect the Commissions ruling on this. 10 days until fight time.
