    This woman Ronda is fighting sat night is scary looking. Supposedly she is going to give Rousey a run for her money. Cat Zingano. She looks kind of old. Husband killed himself last year.

    I'd like to think most of it is staged bravado as I used to find him charming and witty, but McGregor's grown beyond insufferable since the fame went to his head. I can't find the exact point at which he said it in the press conference in Brazil, but I'm pretty sure I recall him talking about doing to Aldo something akin to what the European man did to South America during the era of conquest and colonisation. It definitely carried those connotations anyway. I cringed. How crass, insulting and, for a supposedly-proud Irishman, seriously lacking in any sense of self-awareness. It was little more than overt racism. Is that how UFC wishes to promote itself?

    The press conference at the Convention Centre was similarly embarrassing for both McGregor's bandwagon and the sport.

    But don't you see McGregor fights for "truckloads of money" and we should be proud of him.

    Might buy some class on the next truckload.

    The press conference was very cringeworthy alright. I think McGregor is straining to keep this character going but it's really not working on Aldo. Brandao, Poirier and Siver all got taken in by the bravado but Aldo isn't showing a glimmer of worry or fear, despite McGregor's declarations to the contrary and I think it's really getting to McGregor. He's realising that Aldo won't freeze up and mentally buckle so it's going to be a true test of his actual fighting skills, which he almost seems to have forgotten about recently. The lack of respect for Aldo from the Dublin crowd was ridiculous, people who were given the chance to ask questions from the audience were just throwing around crass, childish insults and singing ole looked like complete morons. I hope that's not a reflection of the Irish crowd travelling to Vegas for the fight. Despite all the crap though it should still be a super fight and with Robbie Lawler and Rory McDonald on the card too and all of the other international fight week events the Vegas trip should be worth it.

    McGregor looks the more agitated of the two and very needy to prove a point.

    Guys Its UFC. There is no class. That's the point. To get prisoners to cooperate in this country they let them watch UFC. Seriously.

    I don't think he's grown beyond insufferable. If anything, he's toned it down a bit, but his fanbase is growing. He's the latest bandwagon, Irish people love bandwagons, and he's doing well for himself and making a lot of money for a pretty obscure sport.

    Amazing attendance at the weigh ins. I know it's free in but it just shows the hype McGregor has built up.

    Embarrassing interview with some young one on RTE radio who has something to do with CM. I admire that someone can become famous competing in something that really is inconsequential, no matter how much they try to big it up. I don't see it as a sport and if my son or daughter had a choice between punching someone in the head when they're lying on the ground, or lining out for Meath, I'd be shouting Up The Royals.

    This is the perfect pastime for the playstation generation, it matches up with the meaningless franchise movies that need blood, gore and "action" without much thinking behind it. McGregor is no Barry McGuigan, but he wouldn't want to be. And fair play.

    At a time when there are protests on the streets against water charges and constant reminders of our corrupt government, now Joan Burton's comments on iphones seems less crass. How many of those in Las Vegas on the bandwagon or sitting up late tonight paying for the privilege of watching WWE with blood were protesting water charges.

    Isn't that much the same thing?
