Twitter reacts to McGregor over Brandao

Saturday, July 19, 2014

Conor McGregor promised a first round KO of Diego Brandao, and so it came to pass, at 4:05. The crowd at the O2 arena erupted like Guinness announced free beer for life, and Twitter reacted.

Conor McGregor needs to stop being SO humble & shy if he ever wants anyone to pay attention to him.

Main event time. If you're standing outside the 02 I suggest you move. The roof is about to blow off.

 JJ @johnjoeoregan
You have never heard a crowd as loud as what is about to happen right now when Conor McGregor walks in.

“Every single seat was sold, and not one of them is being used right now.” Nice line by @danhardymma during @TheNotoriousMMA walkout.

ahahah Diego is doing burpees inside the cage!

 Kenny Florian @kennyflorian
The aggressiveness that makes #Brandao dangerous can be the very same thing that leads to his downfall against #McGregor #UFCDublin

 Will Metcalfe @Will__Metcalfe
McGregor showing his lack of class again as he fakes a customary touch of gloves and goes for a sneak body kick!

 Joe Lauzon @JoeLauzon
What a piece of s—.

 Gareth A Davies @GarethADaviesDT
And with the lights dimmed for @TheNotoriousMMA #ufcdublin for me McGregor wins by 2nd round TKO

 JJ @johnjoeoregan
Holy s— the crowd went off. They are literally all throwing their beers up in the air and all over each other and the cage in celebration

 Seán Sheehan @SeanSheehanBA
•I'm COVERED in beer.
•I'm 18 rows back and was literally soaked in beer.

 Luke Thomas @SBNLukeThomas
The Irish can't high five each other because they're all double fisting. Hilarious.

Damon Martin ‏@DamonMartin
I think Conor McGregor beats a lot of top 10 FW's. Frankie Edgar – great boxing, wrestling, can't get in his head. That's a very hard fight.

 Cub Swanson @CubSwanson
When he's not talking crap about me, I kinda like the kid lol

“It was a clean sweep for the Irish… We are not here to take part, we are here to take over.” – Conor McGregor

To see how far Irish MMA has come in 5 years is astounding. Well done Ireland. Well done.

 Danny O'Dwyer ‏@dannyodwyer
The UFC belongs to Ireland today. Amazing. Biggest audience in Fight Card history. Biggest pre-lims too. All thanks to @TheNotoriousMMA

 Jeremy Botter @jeremybotter
Yep. That guy is the first true UFC featherweight star.
