13 December 2015 / 10 months 2 weeks ago

Unruly Irish UFC fans, who were allegedly drunk, forced a flight heading to Las Vegas to make a U-turn and head back to New York after interrupting the flight crew and fighting.

The plane was off to Vegas before this weekend’s fight between Conor McGregor and Jose Aldo, and was carrying a number of Irish UFC supporters.

UNILAD reports that the flight was forced to turn around when a fight broke out between at least two passengers.

The flight's takeoff had initially been delayed after another Irish passenger kept interrupting the flight crew's safety briefing.
