If you weren’t a fan of Conor McGregor before, this should put you over the top.
The former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) champ-champ is funding the construction of eight homes in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland to provide housing for homeless families.
According to “Notorious,” his project will build eight homes for families that are currently residing in hotels.
Conor took to Instagram to spread the news:
“Back on the site today, it has been a while.This is my first property development,” said Conor.
“We have 8 homes here closing in on finish. 3 bedroom houses, designated for families that currently reside in hotels around the capital, without a home to call their own.”
“But not for long. Through the storm comes the sun! Walking around this land and these homes today, meeting all the neighbors, knowing that soon there will be families living here, creating their own memories, and building back their lives, gives me great pride,” added McGregor.
“Ireland forever! Ireland first! Ireland always!”
This truly is a commendable project for Conor, who has the coin to fund such the endeavor thanks to being the biggest money-making machine ever in mixed martial arts (MMA).
It’s good to see he’s putting his money to great use, as he knows firsthand the struggles of living in the poorest parts of Ireland, working as a plumber and living off welfare before he made it big in the fight game.
