WATCH: Behind-the-Scenes with Mick Conlan and Conor McGregor at Madison Square Garden

Mick Conlan‘s pro debut last month was a bit special.

The Belfast super bantam headlined at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on St Patrick’s Day, with one of the most extravagant ring entrances for an Irish boxer ever.

Part of this ring entrance was UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who returned to The Mecca of Boxing for the first time since his title win over Eddie Alvarez last November.

The official McGregor website followed the Dubliner before, during, and after Conlan’s third round stoppage of Tim Ibarra, and have released the behind the scenes footage from the night.
