The people of Dublin are in for a treat today, as hometown hero Conor McGregor does battle with Diego Brandao in the main event of UFC Fight Night 46. (We recommend listening to this traditional Irish folk song to get psyched up for it.) Also on the card, emotionless Icelander Gunnar Nelson will look to maintain his undefeated record against Zak Cummings, and these two old-timey gentlemen square off in the flyweight division.
The event isn’t airing on TV out here in North America, but CagePotato Fight Pass Correspondent Barry “Bear” Siragusa will keep you updated with live round-by-round results from the main card, which will be available after the jump beginning at 3 p.m. ET / noon PT.

Please stand by…
The crowd is crazy! It was deafening during the first Prelim. Will the Irish Con-man live up to the hype? Will Brad Pickett mess up Ian McCall’s hair? Will McCall celebrate by saying “Bully!” should he win? Will Brandao win and become the first(?) UFC fighter to be dragged out of the octagon by an angry mob? Plenty of questions to be answered in the next few hours. I’ll resist the urge to start us off with “top of the evening” and just go with- Right ya miserable buggers, let’s do this.
Norman Parke (19-2 MMA)
Born in Northern Ireland, Parke competed in TUF: The Smashes, where he won the lightweight tournament. He had a nine fight win streak, followed by a single draw against Leonard Santos where Parke was deducted a point for grabbing Santos’s shorts.
Naoyuki Kotani (33-10-7)
Seven draws? This is Kotani’s return to the UFC after a rough start and eventual release from the promotion in 2007. He is a veteran of Pride, Rings, and Pancrase. Despite being only 32 years old, he has been fighting for nearly 15 years.
