Boston, MA - Conor McGregor decided to do something selfless this past week – the UFC champion gave a gift to ten Boston firefighters, and that gift just so happened to be tickets to Game 1 of the World Series. Thankfully, McGregor gave them for free as an act of thanks to the Boston Firefighter Department for all that they do.
TMZ Sports wrote up a report about the act of kindness displayed by McGregor, stating that he had personally delivered the tickets to the firefighters. He went in person to the Back Bay station, where he met the group of ten firefighters. McGregor took pictures with the team of firefighters, and he even had a little bit of extra time to slide down the fire pole (as we all dream of doing).
The TMZ report also stated that McGregor wanted to do something special for the folks that put their lives on the line day in and day out. This seemed to be the perfect starting point. In addition, McGregor stated that his brand of whiskey, Proper No. Twelve will now be donating five dollars to first responders every time a case is sold. That could be up to $1 million every year.
During his meeting with the firefighters, he shared some of his Proper No. Twelve whiskey with them. According to reports, McGregor and the team of firefighters toasted to their team (the Red Sox), winning the World Series this year. McGregor has done a good deed by reaching out to the Boston firefighters and by donating money from each case of whiskey he sells.
According to reports, McGregor made close to $50 million from the fight he had against Khabib Nurmagomedov. In addition, McGregor made approximately $100 million from the fight he had against Floyd Mayweather. Thankfully, McGregor has planned to help all first responders out with his earnings.
When Game 1 starts of the World Series, the Red Sox will be facing either the Brewers or the Dodgers at Fenway Park. The first two games will be held at Fenway Park.
