Watch: The Crowd Losing It To 'Zombie' As Ais Daly Walked On At UFC Dublin

All this week on The Rewind, we're on a quest to find out what Ireland's Greatest Singalong Song is.

'Zombie' is one one of Ireland's most famous musical exports, with The Cranberries run in the early 1990s cementing them as one of Ireland's greatest ever bands.

Although a Limerick institution, we're heading to Dublin and harking back to 2015, when Drimnagh fighter Aisling Daly walked out to the sound of Dolores O'Riordan and Co.

UFC Fight Night 76 was a very big one for Dubliner Aisling Daly.

Having not fought in Dublin since 2013 and missing out of the incredible atmosphere of the last time the UFC came to Dublin, Daly was desperate to perform in front of an Irish crowd and bring home a win to help her climb the rankings of the womens strawweight division.

Daly delivered, and eventually claimed a convincing decision victory, but her walk out to the Octagon provided one of the most memorable moments of the night. Daly chose 'Zombie' by the The Cranberries as her entrance music and the crowd sang every word along with her:

It was a spine-tingling moment, and Daly was visibly moved by the reaction.
