There may not have been as many Irish fans in Las Vegas to see Conor McGregor exact revenge on Nate Diaz, but they made themselves heard in the T-Mobile Arena.
There was a boisterous home following for Nate Diaz too as the noise levels soared but it was the travelling Irish who were singing at the end as they celebrated an epic victory for the Notorious Conor McGregor.
The rematch between McGregor and Diaz had not garnered as much hype as their first bout at UFC 196 and, indeed, ticket prices were cut last week in a bid to fill the T-Mobile Arena.
But the Irish who made it over were in fine voice in Sin City.
