In the short history of mixed martial arts events taking place inside Madison Square Garden just three Irishman have claimed wins inside the hallowed structure.

The first, and most prominent, was Conor McGregor who added UFC lightweight gold to the featherweight title he already held in the first-ever fight card in the arena back in November 2016.
