    These people didn't know what UFC was two years ago and now they are obsessed with it. It amuses me. The same kind of people that protest water charges, play the social welfare/benefits system and queue up all night to buy the latest Grand Theft Auto video game on release day.

    They don't have enough money to pay for water but they have enough money to buy a Playstation 4 and Xbox One. They do realize that if - touch wood - they got a life threatening injury their treatment at the hospital isn't free either? Nothing is "free".

    It's embarrassing really. We don't have enough people to fill a ground for a crucial football match and we don't have enough people to outsing Scottish supporters in our own ground but we apparently have enough people to traipse to Las Vegas and follow Conor McGregor around like a puppy.

    Don't get me started on what I think about people who have been watching UFC for less than two years going to the events center in Dublin to roar abuse at Jose Aldo, when they couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag!

    It must be the only sport where athletes are seemingly encouraged to mock their opponents because of what country they come from and make videos of themselves dressing up as leprechauns.

    You wouldn't even get that in wrestling FFS!

    Its funny....i feel like a lot of the irish I know who are interested at least midly in CM would never openly root against him but kind of wouldn't mind seeing him getting his ass kicked and put in his place....he really doesn't get under my skin but he is wearing on some. Guess that's obvious.

    If the vast majority of comments on YouTube and all the mainstream UFC sites are any indication, most American fans do not like McGregor.

    Which is kind of odd considering his natural charisma and genuine talent.

    I'll leave it to people's interpretation why that is.

    With a head full of mush, much like all it seems in the UFC (I had to check it was the UFC and not the WWF for a sec, ha!)

    CD, I know, I hate agreeing with a person I vote against! But I know 2 lads from Blanch who are out in Las Vegas, both protested water charges and one of them is on UI (I don't know what it is called now). The same person called me a muppet for answering that my favourite team wasn't EPL!

    I find it odd that the football team is at its lowest ebb, yet there are two born and bred Irishmen holding championships in the WWE and Conor is now the UFC Interim Featherweight Champion.

    You have to admit though. Mayweather v Pacquiao induced sleep. These UFC matches raise the heart rate.

    You didn't like that nigel? Amazing how many of you came over for this. He really does look like a crack head but you can't knock his resolve.

    The Lawler/MacDonald fight was like a scene from a Saw movie. It left MacDonald looking like The Elephant Man.

    Scroll through the pictures in the slideshow. It will either make you a UFC fan or turn you off UFC forever. There is no middle ground.

    I'm not huge into the UFC at all Crosby. Sort of a fleeting interest. I'm a fan of all out martial arts, as it can be absolutely mesmerising at times, although, the wrestling side of UFC is a bit, for lack of a lesser word, sh!te.

    There was a bit too much wrestling and not enough action in that fight for me.

    As TOWK has alluded to, the other main card on the night was excellent, proper fighting, two men going at it. What the UFC and MMA in general should be.

    Gay porn........

    I think the fighters (though visibly many are not entirely clean) are brave, but maybe it is that I am too old and set in my boxing ways that I don't understand the sport in kneeing someone unconscious then punching them in the head, or elbowing someone over and over in the head as they lie prone. I find the presentation of the whole event crass and cheap, yet it is lowest common denomination stuff for the playstation generation.

    I don't hate the sport, I just object to it being called a sport and feel embarrassed as a human being by it.

    Seagal is the real deal in Russia and he's actually quite clever with some of what he says - for example he has not been backwards in drawing parallels between US interference and Russian messing about, yet he has now been bought lock stock and barrel like Mr Green Card Asterix. He's at the US iconic level of Chuck Norris - ie giggle-worthy - here.

    Didn't McGregor say he was going place his ball$ on someone's chin? Hmm?!

    I think MMA is terrible. It has no class or skill to it like other forms of martial arts. If you look at other forms of martial arts it's about out thinking your opponent and out scoring him/her. Even in boxing that's the aim. But MMA is just about beating your opponent to a bloody mess. It is like watching to blokes outside a chipper on Friday night having a scrap!

    Dana is corrupt but he sure ain't stupid.

    Anyway Conor around a 2-1 favorite for the big fight around Christmas. The fight to end all fights! maybe Ronda on the undercard?
