Dublin, Ireland's Conor McGregor

While Conor McGregor may have started the ‘Irish Invasion’ of MMA, the rest of the SBG Ireland team has also gained widespread popularity in the world of MMA.

Former UFC flyweight Paddy Holohan posted the following photo on Instagram of himself, UFC women’s strawweight Aisling Daly, and UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor, alongside coach John Kavanagh. The photo, which you can see below, was captioned:

Once upon a time the 3 of us were white belts …1000s of hours later we roll as Brown belts

Holohan was recently forced to retire from MMA as a result of being diagnosed with Factor XIII blood deficiency which causes him to bleed at an abnormal rate. Holohan will be opening a new branch of SBG in Taillight Ireland.
