This .gif is so incredibly long -- and it's worth every nanosecond of it. Showtime has this entire weigh-in staredown down to the very microscopic detail. From the close-up to the quick pan of each fighter as they look out to the eager audience. This, my friends, is how a weigh-in is done.

From what people have been saying, it was the biggest weigh-in that has ever been conducted in the history of combat sports. They literally opened up the MGM Grand Garden arena at full capacity for the weigh-in -- and there still wasn't enough seating for the fight fans.

Tomorrow is going to be great. British mma all afternoon, WSOF after dinner and then Mayweather/Canelo should be just about to start after that. So much awesome.

Just watched the weigh in
Pretty fucking cool
Biggest weigh in ever.
Definitely pumps you up for the fight. But man two fights only for like 60 dollar ppv is too much.

Glad the UFC has 5 fight ppv plus prelims.

Mayweather's such a toolbox. I want to see him get KTFO so badly.

As expected the staredown was more entertaining than the fight.

Mayweather wanted canelo to hold the belt in the gif.... He should have held it.

That's it, I'm going to cut some weight and show Floyd Jr. how to fight.....then.......I'm gonna show Floyd Sr. how to coach....AND......how to cut a rug on the dance floor.

Look at it as a sequel to the Voice of Reason aptly titled: The Ultimate How To be like the Millionaire Dollar Man.

That fight sucked more than a Jenna Jamison "film."
