Lately it has seemed like Conor McGregor has only been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Between getting into Twitter feuds and also actual brawls, the UFC fighter has racked up quite a bit of notoriety.

However, that seems to be changing now, as McGregor has shown his fans that underneath all the bravado, lies a heart of gold. A fan reached out to McGregor on Twitter, requesting him to help out a young girl from Dublin who’s battling brain cancer.

McGregor stepped up to the opportunity, and made a generous donation of €30,000 to help her out. The fighter also sent out a sweet and heartfelt message offering his best wishes to the girl.

Stephen, that is done! God bless this strong little lady and her family, we are with yours all the way let’s go!


Fans, of course, were elated to see the fighter show his caring side. Stephen, who originally reached out to McGregor was quite obviously stoked.

Omg pal you are a legend, this is going to help the family so much thank you so much you are insane!!! @TheNotoriousMMA !! Champion in every way pal!

With this one gesture, McGregor has reminded his fans that despite all his brashness and bluster, he is, ultimately, a kind person. Here’s also hoping that Aaliyah makes a speedy recovery. Check out the following tweets.
