Conor McGregor: A class apart
Several reports in May of 2020 detailed that McGregor personally delivered medical gowns to the Generation Health Medical clinic based out of Dublin. Multiple varied reports covered the continuous charitable work by McGregor. The Medical Director expressed her views on the altruistic nature of ‘The Notorious One’
“It was like Christmas. He himself and his team arrived into my surgery yesterday unexpected with a box. We were so shocked we sort of said, ‘Thank you,’ and were stunned. When they went out the door we opened the box and realized that they were gowns, and honestly, it was like Christmas.”
“Myself and my manager ran downstairs after them to thank them because we had been trying really hard to get gowns. We could only find them at €9 a gown and you had to order 200, and we couldn’t afford to do that. So I would have had no gowns today if not for the charity.”
Despite his various less than ideal instances over the last few years, 2020 has seen a remarkable change in the former champion. Moreover, the impact of his outreach and support has gone a long way in rebuilding his community.
