Conor McGregor has that kind of personality that you would either love him or completely hate him — there is no middle ground. However, despite his loud mouth and rough behavior, the UFC star proved that he actually is a good guy deep inside.
McGregor has revealed he is building houses for a number of homeless families in Dublin, Ireland. He recently visited the construction site and talked with some of the development workers as he checked the project’s progress and even met some local residents.
Like many sporting superstars who reach the elite level, McGregor enjoys displaying how much wealth he has on social media. So it is refreshing to see him showcase his act of generosity through images of the project.

He wrote on Instagram:
“Back on the site today, it has been a while. This is my first property development.
We have 8 homes here closing in on finish. 3 bedroom houses, designated for families that currently reside in hotels around the capital, without a home to call their own.
But not for long. Through the storm comes the sun!
Walking around this land and these homes today, meeting all the neighbors, knowing that soon there will be families living here, creating their own memories, and building back their lives, gives me great pride!
Ireland forever! Ireland first! Ireland always!”
Social media users were quick to praise McGregor’s incredible gesture amid the worsening homelessness crisis in Ireland’s capital.
Meanwhile, the Irishman has not fought in the Octagon since his defeat to lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov last October. McGregor “retired” for a second time earlier this year but quickly reversed his decision and is expected to return to UFC in the coming months.
It feels like McGregor has been in the press for all the wrong reasons as the years have gone by, most notably for his involvement in the bus attack at UFC 223. Still, this project he posted on Instagram is certainly admirable.
