Conor McGregor took action to save his teammates’ gym from closing forever
Conor McGregor’s action once again made fans admire the generosity of the Irish star.
The impact of the COVID-19 epidemic has caused the world MMA village to see a bleak year with a drastically reduced number of events, infected boxers and a retreat from important matches that fans regret.
Not only that, many gyms before the state of social isolation, could not be maintained but led to the closure. Recently, MMA SBG Portarlington MMA – a branch of Straight Blast Gym (SBG) is known as the nearest “victim”.
“We have to announce our final closure today. The COVID pandemic has hit the gym so hard that the gym cannot be kept running because the rental bills have exceeded our capacity to maintain.” – The gym’s Instagram page posted it.
However, the bad news about SBG Portarlington reached Conor McGregor – a longtime member of SBG Ireland. Immediately, the superstar of UFC helped out, bringing SBG Portalington back to normal operations.
“From the bottom of the abyss, we are back. The gym will not close. Teammate Conor McGregor has decided to help and keep the room running. Thank you very much.” – Written by SBG Portarlington.
Under the update of this gym, the UFC superstar also encourages his teammates to continue training. Many supportive comments sent to the action of “sponsor” Conor McGregor.
Here, on January 24, Vietnam, Conor McGregor will return to the ring with Dustin Poirier at UFC 257. It is known that “The Notorious” will also donate 500 thousand dollars to Poirier’s Good Fight Foundation – as a promise made earlier.
