Whatever the reason behind it, Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather will get their wish.

The Nevada Athletic Commission approved the use of 8-ounce gloves for the two next Saturday night when they meet in Las Vegas from the T-Mobile Arena.

A special “one-time” waiver was granted by the NAC. Typically, 10-ounce gloves are used in boxing matches, while 4-ounce ones are used in MMA fights.

The NAC also appointed Hall of Fame referee Robert Byrd as the third man inside the ring with Mayweather and McGregor.
