In case you missed the action last night, Conor McGregor took out another opponent in the form of Dennis Siver in Boston last night, and the congratulations have been rolling in ever since.
From Arnold Schwarzenegger to Jamie Heaslip, there were plenty of people watching on last night as McGregor took another step towards a battle with Jose Aldo for the title, something he wasn't shy about letting the Brazilian know after the end of his bout with Siver.
Despite the theatrics of it (or perhaps because of them) the praise was rolling in for McGregor on Twitter last night, as a number of MMA fans and celebrities were gripped by the Irishman's performance, including the Terminator himself, who assured him that he'd be there in person to watch him fight for the title.
Congrats to the McGregor-nator @TheNotoriousMMA on terminating another opponent. Can't wait for your world championship fight. I'll be there

His coach, John Kavanagh, was celebrating his birthday, and by the looks of it he had a pretty good day too.
