The UFC returned to Ireland for the first time in five years Saturday, as Conor McGregor impressed his countrymen with a first round finish of Diego Brandao in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46.
However, not everybody was impressed with “Notorious” as the Irish crowd.
Check out some of the more interesting messages posted on Twitter throughout the card and after it concluded:

They’re talking about possibly Edgar next for McGregor. Edgar is pretty uninterested in that fight, but he never says no to the UFC.
