By: Darren Heitner, Forbes
"A young man and woman with distinct American accents walked into the Quays Irish Restaurant in Dublin, Ireland looking for a drink.  They arrived in town earlier this week, originally departing from their hometown of Los Angeles, California.  They are not in Ireland for the drinks and debauchery; they did not travel 5,157 miles to take in the lush landscapes.  The happy couple came all the way to Dublin to catch an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) event.  It is not just any UFC event.  It is special because it features a fighter who talks the talk and walks the walk.  He is also from Ireland.  His name is Conor McGregor.

"Saturday‚Äôs UFC Fight Night 46 in Dublin, Ireland features McGregor against Diego Brandao in the main event.  The UFC Fight Night will be hosted inside of The O2, a venue that holds roughly 14,000 spectators.  According to UFC Europe managing director Garry Cook, tickets were sold out within twenty-five minutes of being released for sale."
