The UFC is all about beating your enemy into submission. However, that doesn’t mean all the participants are cold-hearted warriors. Quite the opposite, actually. The biggest name in the sport, Conor McGregor is a huge proponent of numerous good causes, and regularly gives back to these charities. Recently, McGregor gave a sizeable donation to one of the best, Tunnel to Towers, a 911 charity, live on Fox News. Check this out.
World-renowned UFC fighter Conor McGregor honored America’s fallen first responders Wednesday with a $1 million check to Tunnel to Towers Foundation CEO Frank Siller in front of a live studio audience on “Hannity.”
“As human beings, it’s a must to give back,” McGregor said. “I work to give back. I work to support my family, and, you know, this is what we must deal with. If people want to help donate to this great foundation, Tunnel to Towers, you can also, we’d appreciate that greatly.”
During the interview, McGregor spoke about his admiration for first responders and military personnel, stating that they are the true heroes of society. He also discussed his own personal experiences with loss and how it has driven him to give back to those in need. McGregor’s donation is a testament to his commitment to supporting those who serve and protect our communities.

This is not the first time that McGregor has given back to the community. In 2020, he donated over $1 million worth of personal protective equipment to hospitals in Ireland to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic. McGregor’s philanthropic efforts demonstrate his dedication to making a positive impact on the world.
McGregor’s donation to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation highlights the importance of supporting our first responders and military personnel. Their bravery and sacrifice often go unrecognized, and it is up to us to show them our gratitude and support. McGregor’s generosity serves as an example to others, encouraging them to give back to their communities and support those who serve and protect us every day. However, Sean Hannity also got in on the giving himself.
Hannity announced to his studio audience that he will join McGregor by writing a check for $100,000 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Tunnel to Towers Foundation is a nonprofit that honors FDNY firefighter Stephen Siller, who sacrificed his life to save others on Sept. 11, 2001.
The foundation’s mission honors the legacy of American heroes by paying off mortgages for injured veterans, first responders and their families, as well as Gold Star families across the country.
Tunnel to Towers was founded after 9/11, and is one of the better charities out there. It honors fallen first responders and helps to pay off mortgages so families of fallen heroes can stay in their homes. McGregor and Hannity both show their true character by supporting this foundation. While the left bitches about equity and virtue signals, real patriots support charitable causes, even if they aren’t American-born.
Tunnel to Towers chairman and CEO Frank Siller told Hannity and McGregor that Buffalo, New York, firefighter Jason Arno recently died in a fire and left behind his wife, Sarah, and daughter, Olivia.
Siller told “Hannity” that the foundation will commit to paying off the family’s mortgage.
“You should know that this money that you gave us and the viewers that have helped us for years, this is how we pay off these mortgages,” he said.
