The Nevada Athletic Commission made a surprising vote to allow Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather to fight with 8 oz. gloves instead of 10, according to ESPN's Dan Rafael.

The fight was previously supposed to feature 10 oz. gloves, but both Mayweather and McGregor said they'd like to use 8 oz.


Of course, some believe that nothing will truly help McGregor, such is the disadvantage he's facing in his first pro boxing match.

Nonetheless, the size of the gloves will be a point of focus during the fight, and Mayweather did say he would fight with them to give fans a better show.
