Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier conducted their weigh-ins on Fight Island ahead of Saturday night's crunch rematch.

But UFC fans were unable to watch on as BT Sport's live stream of the event crashed before being cut off on YouTube.

Poor connection saw the video feed abandoned before the weigh-ins had even begun.

The fighters still took to the scales in Abu Dhabi, though, as Notorious weighed in at 155lbs.

American opponent Poirier was next up and tipped the scales at slightly more with 156lbs recorded for the 32-year-old.

Angry UFC fans who missed the coverage, though, were left irrate at missing the key moment in the build up to the fight.

One frustrated viewer wrote on YouTube: “Stream fail. Unbelievable”.

Another added: “That was poor. Ruined my morning.”

“Clickbait contender of the year here,” a third also put.

McGregor can't wait to get going in the Octagon as he gears up to make his UFC comeback.

Ahead of the fight, Notorious discussed his prediction in Thursday’s press conference and said: “Complete confidence in my preparation and ability.

“Dustin’s a great competitor. I know there’s questions that he’s heavier and more experienced but I feel I can do.

“But I feel there are question marks regarding conditioning.

“I’ve put a lot of work in to get myself to the 155lb weight limit.”
