Irish fans take over MGM Grand at UFC 178 weigh-ins

It looks like Conor McGregor will have a strong following for tonight’s bout with Dustin Poirier.

LAS VEGAS’ MGM Grand hosts UFC 178 in the early hours of Sunday morning and Irish fans showed up in their numbers to support Conor McGregor at Saturday’s weigh-ins.

It wasn’t quite as electric as the atmosphere in Dublin two months ago, when 4,500 people turned out, but there were plenty of tricolours on show and even a few chants of ‘Olé, Olé, Olé’ and, ‘The Fields of Athenry’, and ‘There’s only one Conor McGregor‘.
