Conor McGregor Is Building Homes For Homeless Families In Dublin

In a brilliant gesture, Conor McGregor has revealed he is building eight, three bedroom houses for homeless families in the Dublin area.

'Notorious' posted progress of the building site on social media earlier, saying: "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!"

It feels like McGregor has been in the press for all the wrong reasons in years gone by, most notably for his involvement in the bus attack at UFC 223.

But this gesture is certainly admirable.

So when will the Irish fighter return to the ring? It could be in the summer, according to UFC president Dana White.

McGregor hasn't fought inside the famed Octagon since his devastating loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov at UFC 229.

But it appears the UFC president is eyeing him up for a summer return. The 'Baldfather' is set to meet with the 30-year-old to discuss his next fight:

"He and I are getting together very soon, within the next week, and we're going to figure out what's next for him," he said. "I see him fighting this summer."

There's a bunch of names linked with McGregor. From Anthony Pettis to Tony Ferguson not to mention Donald Cerrone, who recorded his 36th professional MMA victory over the weekend. He out-pointed Al Iaquinta in a barn burner.

White believes McGregor vs. Cerrone makes the most sense

"The Cerrone fight makes sense," he added.

"There's a couple different options out there for him. He was talking about the Cerrone fight at one point. I don't really know but that fight makes sense."

Cerrone's riding an impressive three-fight win streak following his defeat to Leon Edwards back in June 2018. He's beaten Mike Perry, Alexander Hernandez and Iaquinta.

McGregor, on the other hand, will be looking to get back on the win column as he angles for a rematch with Nurmagomedov.
