Conor McGregor has had a bit of a rocky history with the press.

However, this time around – Conor's Twitter has blown up for all the right reasons.

The MMA star was a massive legend and helped a sick 5-year-old by donating €10,000.

The Irish boy is Bryan Buckley, known as Bru, received a Sepsis diagnosis last year, and is awaiting life-changing surgery.

Little Bru is unable to eat or walk and has an NG tube up his nose – something no child should experience. 

His mum, Grainne worked tirelessly to raise funds for Bru's medical care, so she can "get private care and the help he deserves."

As of yesterday, the GoFundMe had managed to raise a little over €3,000.

However, the MMA fighter quickly changed that by donating the €10,000, which had been their original target.

Conor had given the money anonymously, but mum Grainne made sure to publicly thank the star for his generosity.

Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “We are forever grateful. I will never forget what you have done for my boy, you truly are a legend.” 

Incredibly, their GoFundMe has now reached over €14,000, with donations still flooding in. 

We are wishing Bryan the very best of luck with his surgery and we hope he gets better soon.

It seems that despite being a global superstar, Conor hasn't forgotten where he has come from. 



We all remember him as Draco Malfoy's aide Gregory Goyle in the Harry Potter series, but now the actor has taken on a different career.

Josh Herdman looked completely different as he made his debut in the fighting ring this week; winning his first match against Polish fighter Janusz Walachowski in London.

The 28-year-old actor starred in all eight films but now trains in mixed martial arts. 

He told The Mirror: “I’ve been training traditional Japanese jujitsu for nearly five years and hold a shodan black belt."

“It’s raw, exciting and unpredictable. I find it more interesting than boxing although I appreciate the beauty and art in boxing. It also made sense to move onto MMA because of my jujitsu training.”

However, the former HP star also admitted that he hasn't given up on acting just yet.

“I haven’t fallen out of love with it, I still have an agent and still go for auditions. It’s just a little bit like playing the lottery for a living.

“I don’t see it so much as a career change, I am passionate about both acting and fighting," he added.
