Not just for his trash talk and fight game, the notorious Conor McGregor is one of the most generous fighters in the world. We know him for being vocal and taking a stand for his friends and family.
This time, the Notorious one broke into news headlines when he saved Straight Blast Gym, Portarlington which was shutting down its operations forever.
Conor McGregor is the biggest fighter to come out of the SBG chain of gyms. As soon as Philip Mulpeter, owner of SBG Portarlington, took to Instagram about the gym’s closure, the Notorious one couldn’t hold back and had to help his compatriot.
As this news reached out to Mulpeter, he sprinted to Instagram once again to share this surreal news with its members.
“From the lowest low to the highest high. WE ARE NOT CLOSING!!
Our teammate and friend @thenotoriousmma has decided to help us out and keep the gym running. We will be eternally grateful.
To everyone that messaged and got in touch with us to show your support, thank you all so much. See you all on the mats. Oss!!”

The COVID-19 pandemic has been grilling for gyms and fitness centers surrounding the world. It forced a lot of these havens to close down for good because of a lack of financial support.
However, in times like these, athletes like Conor McGregor truly set an example for every individual out there. Every sizeable athlete or sports person should pledge to save such fitness centers that contribute to the health and wellbeing of their nation.
Conor McGregor – A big-hearted Irishman
This is not the only time when the former UFC double champ has stepped up to save his Irish mates. In tough COVID times too, McGregor donated a whopping €1 million worth of protective equipment to hospitals in their battle against the ongoing pandemic.
Furthermore, a couple of months back, McGregor raised $100 million for ‘Tunnel To Towers’ to help their COVID fund. ‘Tunnel To Towers’ helps the families of first responders who lost their lives in this pandemic while saving others.
McGregor is now gearing up for his comeback against Dustin Poirier on January 23rd at UFC 257. It would glue the world to their TV screens to see what the Irishman does in the octagon in this rematch. It’s back to the mats for the lightweight kingpin as well.
