Yesterday at Croke Park 30 Irishman beat the hell out of each other, as Kilkenny pipped Tipperary to the All-Ireland Hurling Championship. A few hours later, across the pond in Las Vegas, another Irishman was dishing out an ass-whooping. But he was doing it in just his pants.
Conor McGregor made it four straight wins at UFC 178 with a first round TKO win over Dustin Poirier. The fighting Irishman has moved up the featherweight rankings and now has his eyes on a world title.
But this fight wasn’t without controversy – and we’re not talking about McGregor’s terrible ponytail thing. The Irish fighter caught Poirier with a left hook to the back of the head, sending the American to the mat and following a few more strikes, the referee stopped the fight. Was it a foul shot or was it purely accidental, as McGregor aimed and threw his punch at a legal area before Poirier ducked?

Also, Conor if you read this, we’re only joking about your haircut. It’s really cool, and you rock it. We’re even thinking about making it a compulsory look for all Blog staff. Really slick. Please don’t punch us.
