Notorious Responds to the Commission Not Allowing a Stare Down Between Wilder & Fury at the Weigh In

Because the boxers got physical during the press conference on Wednesday, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is barring the two men from doing a stare down after they weigh in tomorrow. McGregor, who is not impressed with the commission’s decision, took to Twitter to voice his displeasure.

Here is the former UFC champion’s tweet:

McGregor tweeted, “Guys, please relax here. Vegas commission, you are one of [the] best commissions, bar none, for impeccably handling events of unpredictability. Place men between the men. Security on stage. Let them get one last look at each other. The last look before it’s really f**king on.”

In boxing and mixed martial arts, a stare down between competitors is a tradition after they weigh in. It is the last time the two athletes see each other before they step into the ring or cage to compete.
