The Crumlin was choked out by the American in the second round of their welterweight contest at UFC 196, his first defeat on the company books.

Erin was in the stands at the MGM Grand when Diaz shocked the world of mixed-martial-arts with his victory.

"I remember standing there and putting my hands into a love heart sign and he nodded.  I was so proud (of how humble he was)....," she told Eoghan McDermott Show on 2FM.

On the rematch, she said: "I definitely know we're going to see a whole new Conor McGregor....."

Erin doesn't mind being recognised because of her famous sibling and revealed what the Notorious is like when the cameras are off.

"I wear my heart on my sleeve - what you see is what you get - pretty much like actually like my brother"

"He's an ordinary fella who had a dream in his hand and went for it. All it takes is determination, passion and talent."

She is opening her own hair-dressing business in Dublin and her brother has been an inspiration for her new venture.

"He (Conor) literally rolls with all adversities...he gives me inspiration to do things for me and to not listen to the negative thoughts coming into my head. He helps me to conquer my own fears," she added.

The full interview can be heard on The Eoghan McDermott Show on Tuesday 5th April from 4pm.
