The best thing we shared today

Conor McGregor seemed to be enjoying himself at the party following his UFC 189 triumph.

On the record

“It’s barbaric. I’ve watched it and I’m repulsed by it. And I’m thinking ‘should the mainstream media engage with this?’. Clearly he (McGregor) has got a lot of support.”

Award-winning Irish journalist, Paul Kimmage, does not appear to be the biggest fan of MMA.

Where we were today

The fixture list

  • There are a number of Champions League second round matches taking place tomorrow, including Crusaders’ clash with Albanian side Skenderbeu Korce.
  • Sporting fashionistas will probably already be aware that the new Ireland rugby jersey is launching in Galway.
  • After a rest day today, the Tour de France recommences with stage 10 taking place tomorrow.

Showbiz, baby!
