Not a big deal referred to the mistake made by the poster and not the state of the country.

ANd I ahve been to Ireland 3 times and have friends there. I don't need to ask that question since I ahve a fair idea of the opinion. Having a US accent in Ireland rocks, btw.

Well I hope you didn't bet any money on it because I have known it since I was a kid...

Anyway, I didn't mean to be a know-it-all and I apologize to the yorT if he felt offended, but I found the comment a bit funny since the thread actually was about the first UFC event outside the UK in Europe, and I also assumed that people from (the Republic of) Ireland probably feel that it is a big deal if they are refered to as UK citizens.

No problem- although I just lost 2000.00 (insert currency of your choice here) on that bet

Once again- I thought the COMMENTS by the posters were not a big deal- was not referring to Ireland with the not a big deal comment.

I think the repsonses are now a lot more constructive and informative.

Aren't they planning to put the show on Philipines as well in 2009? Also, France, Brazil, and Japan in the near future?

Come to think of it. Have any of you ever heard about UFC going to China? That would be huge market, but I was wondering if Chinese people are interested in UFC.

OMG, watch the Spencer Fisher/Alves fight, then look at ur avatar. Alves is def on some type of performance enhancer. He looks like a totally different fighter.

Anyways this should be a fun ass card. Hendo/Franklin has been a dream matchup for years. Shogun is back , Davis/Lytle. All should be fun fights. I hope its FREE!!!

Are they ever going to go anywhere else besides the UK?
Ireland is not part of the UK but I see this has been covered already.

About half a million in the city. About an extra million in the greater Dublin area.

I was out with an Irish girl last night and she didn't know what a shillelagh was.

I know a shillelagh is some kind of weapon right? I'm Irish and this is certainly not something that is common knowledge like your point implied. You learn something new every day though...

Oh, and she didn't recognise a Pogues song when she asked them to play some Irish music in O'Neils.
