Irish fans attending UFC 194 made themselves known at the Live Q&A with the undisputed women's Bantamweight champion Holly Holm in Vegas.

The Q&A was live-broadcast on the UFC YouTube page and Holm fielded questions from assembled fans in the MGM Grand.

Around eight minutes in, a man wearing an unofficial Conor McGregor t-shirt, asked "Do you think you could beat Katie Taylor?" to cheers from the assembled Irish fans.

Holm replied "the boxer from Ireland?" which prompted a round of 'Olé, olé, olé" from around the arena.

Holm revealed that a fight against Taylor had been on the cards, saying "we tried to set that fight up, back when I was boxing!"

Before giving up the mic, the Irish fan shouted "OK, we'll bring you over to Croke Park and we'll whip your ass!" to cheers from the audience.

Later on in the broadcast, Holm was asked by a man wearing an Irish flag as a cape how she felt about "shattering the hopes and dreams" of "little girls" who idolised Ronda Rousey.

The Irish fans are in Vegas in advance of UFC 194, which will see Conor McGregor fight Jose Aldo for the featherweight champion belt.
