The stars have started to arrive for the huge UFC event coming to Dublin this Saturday, and in order to get in to the Irish spirit, they've been given a hurl and a sliotar.

It's fairly likely that most of the stars of the UFC have not come across hurling before, and are unlikely to have the slightest idea how to play the game, but that hasn't stopped them from having a go at a keepy-uppy challenge upon their arrival here today. 

First to step up to the plate was American welterweight Zak Cummings, who gave it his best go and got there in the end.

Ian McCall had a go before he takes on Brad Pickett this weekend, and he seemed to get on pretty well. 

His opponent also had a go, and looks to be pretty decent at it too.

Diego Brandão also gave it a try, but with little success, something the home crowd will be hoping is replicated in the octagon on Saturday when he takes on Conor McGregor.

Of course, Irishman Neil Seery showed the lads how it should be done with an effortless display of skill.
