Irish Conor McGregor fans were in fine voice after the UFC 246 weigh-ins.
A group of fans walked through the MGM Park Casino singing 'Ole, Ole, Ole' following the ceremonial weigh-ins at the Park Theater.
Both McGregor and Donald Cerrone weighed in a 170lbs for their welterweight main event bout.
Speaking at the weigh-ins, McGregor paid tribute to his mam Margaret.
He revealed: "Tomorrow night, I'm dedicating this fight to my ma back home.
"I love you ma. We all love you."
The Notorious also vowed to keep fighting at welterweight after his bout with Cowboy.
He said: "How good to I look at 170? I feel good at this weight.
"I'm coming for all them in this division. It begins with Donald."
Meanwhile, Erin McGregor earlier shared a photo backing her brother ahead of his UFC return.
She posted a photo of the former two-weight champion with his family on Instagram, commenting on it: "Let's go team Mc Gregor @thenotoriousmma #ufc #mcgregor #conormcgregor #family #loveyou."
McGregor is hoping the fight lasts a number of rounds as he returns to the Octagon.
He said: "I'm going to go in, I'm going to look to acquire rounds in here. I'm not going to be in a rush, I'm going to put pressure on Donald, I'm going to hurt Donald.
"If he can last, I'll be happy to acquire rounds here and then build on these rounds.
"I feel after the Diaz 2 build-up that I had and then the performance I had in the bout itself and then leading into the Eddie Alvarez fight. I just felt like I was in prime condition and untouchable so I'm looking to acquire that time in there again.
"Make no mistake, I'm coming with all my intent and all my skills to put Donald away."
Cerrone has more UFC wins and fights than anyone else, but has lost his last two bouts.
Cerrone described McGregor as "the whole package" ahead of their main event bout, but also claimed he will have the most fun he's ever had during the fight.
He said: "When he gets up on stage, he speaks very well. He grew this sport tremendously. The dudes a superstar
"He speaks well in front of the media. He brings a lot of eyes, a lot of attention, he's the whole package."
