The UFC superstar, Conor McGregor, has made the news once more. However, this time it’s not about a brawl or any other controversial act. ‘The Notorious’ has donated €10,000 for a charity wheelchair boxing match. The charity match is scheduled between Paddy Barnes and Stevo Timothy. The latter posted a video message thanking ‘The Notorious’ for his noble donations.

Stevo Timothy said “Hi everyone, I just had to do a quick video because a few minutes ago I upped the GoFundMe to 10 grand and I thought that was a bit mad. By the way, I’m fighting Paddy Barnes in a wheelchair boxing match in aid of the Irish Wheelchair Association. So I upped the limit to €10,000 and thought that was a bit presumptuous of me, given that it was only at €1,800. Anyway, Conor McGregor just retweeted it and donated €10,000.”

It’s not even the money, it’s just that you donating to it will get other people interested… And obviously, we want to f**king raise as much as we possibly can, so thank you so much Conor. I appreciate it you are a gem.”
