Irish fans have reacted angrily at the BBC after the British broadcaster described Conor McGregor as being from the 'United Kingdom and Ireland'.
It's often noted that the British media like to claim sports starts as English even if they are not from England.
Scotland's Andy Murray is a prime example and yesterday the good folk at the Beeb jumped at the McGregor bandwagon.
"McGregor, 26, won in Las Vegas to become the first UFC champion from the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland," read a report on the BBC.
Irish fans have lambasted the Beeb on social media.
