Conor McGregor has generously donated £8,600 to help two 13-year-old Irish twins achieve their MMA dream.

He posted a photo with the couple on Instagram, writing: ‘Done! Make the country I know proud.’

“I was in training when I found out and my coach told me so calmly about it,” Adam told Independent.ie.

‘I went crazy! I thought he was joking until he showed me the comments. I feel like I should win now because he donated all that money.”

His brother added: “We might not have gone without his help. There are so many gyms and he has donated to us, that’s insane.’

The IMMAF World Championships operate under modified rules for youth ages 12 to 17 as they compete with the best young fighters in the world.

There are no main attacks and there is a focus on technique rather than youngsters taking unnecessary damage.

There are still a few months left for the twins to train for the big event and McGregor himself is working hard on his next big game.

The Irishman is working his way back from the broken leg he sustained against Dustin Poirier last year and could return this winter or early next year.

As it stands, Michael Chandler looks like the most likely opponent for ‘Notorious’ when he steps back into the octagon.
