USA Today Sports photographer, Joe Camporeale, was on the scene inside MGM Grand Garden Arena on Friday afternoon (July 10, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada, to shoot several notable mixed martial arts (MMA) fighters at the UFC 189: "Mendes vs. McGregor" weigh in event.

Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening for the interim featherweight championship, Chad "Money" Mendes and "The Notorious" Conor McGregor, were on the scene to weigh in for their 145-pound showdown that will be beamed on pay-per-view (PPV) tomorrow night (Sat., July 11, 2015) beginning at 10 p.m. ET (main card).
Safe to say it was a packed house.
The two fighters who will co-headline the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event -- welterweight champion Robbie Lawler and No. 1 contender Rory MacDonald -- were also among the "Sin City" contingent required to hit the scale. Gunnar Nelson, Matt Brown, and Mike Swick, among others, were also on scene.
Nothing left to do now except fight.
