The 48-year-old singer gave a haunting rendition of The Foggy Dew as Conor McGregor entered the MGM Grand Arena for his highly anticipated fight against Chad Mendes last weekend.

"Sinead is an absolute legend, an Irish hero, a passionate, powerful, strong woman and her voice just sends chills through my spine anytime I listen to her.
