Feel free to let the hyperbole fly on this one.

The UFC's biggest night of the year certainly didn't disappoint as featherweight phenom Conor McGregor scored a second-round TKO over fellow contender Chad Mendes to become the promotion's interim champion at UFC 189 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In an instant classic and leading contender for 'Fight of the Year,' UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler pushed No. 1 contender Rory MacDonald to his breaking point to score a TKO win in the final championship round.

See how the pros reacted to all the action tonight at UFC 189.

LUCK OF THE IRISH
