Sport stars and celebrities have been taking to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to toast Conor McGregor's amazing triumph over reigning UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo.
It seems like most of Ireland stayed up until the wee hours of the morning to see what was billed as being the potentially the greatest ever fight in the weight division.
It was over in just 13 seconds and although people felt a little short-changed, there was no doubting their delight for the Dubliner.
Here was the best reaction on social media, Urijah Faber's Instagram post was particularly good:
