We hadn’t been talking about gloves. We hadn’t even been talking about the fight. She’s a 68-year-old woman who doesn’t follow combat sports apart from occasionally reading articles written by her son, and still she’d heard that there was some dispute about glove size and was curious how it had been resolved. When I told her they’d decided on eight-ounce gloves, she replied: “Does that help McGregor?” This, of course, is the question she was supposed to ask.
