Former double champ Conor McGregor shows his humble side very rarely before UFC 229 Conor Donated $10 thousand to a sick child and a portion of his Wishkey's sales goes to the first responders which shows that the Irish fighter isn't all about making money, walking the billionaire walk to the ring, or saying that he would whoop Jesus's A**.

 

McGregor on 4th of November paid his respect to the legendary Boxer Iron Mike Tyson who was in Dublin at Helix, Dublin, Ireland and congratulated Tyson for his recent marijuana venture, despite Mike's open support to Conor's biggest rival Khabib. Does this mean that Khabib Nurmagomedov did what he said he would do? Did the Dagestani Eagle actually make Conor More Humble?

Conor in his Twitter posted an image him and Mike Tyson where he is seen puffing Mike's Weed product:

The same day, he posted Mike's photograph on his Instagram and said he still considers Mike as one of his idols despite their differences. The photo was followed by a long caption which read:

"thenotoriousmma@ went to see Mike Tyson last night in the Helix, Dublin, Ireland. I love and respect Mike Tyson. And I love the Helix. I won my first World Title here, and also my second. It was good to meet you Mike. You spoke some things about me in the past which I did not like and I was happy to speak to you face to face, put it to bed and have some fun.

You are in good spirits and I was happy to see this! I will always have the height of respect for you! Some decisions you have made around your finances I do not agree with. As a fighter you must fight here. The most. And this is a fight that never ends. It is even a fight that we pass on to our next in line. Our bloodline.

Make sure you stay switched on with those around you at all times. You have good people around you now, I can tell. But stay switched on. Your Marijuana strain that you grow on your own ranch “KO Kush” is really nice. It was an honour to taste it and I wish you and your team all the best with this endeavor. Just remember, if someone tries to rip you. Rip their nose off their face.

You are a fighting icon and deserve endless love and respect! And from me, you will always have it! Don’t let anyone take anything from you. You owe nobody nothing. It is you who is owed. Always remember that. I love you Mike! Iron Mike Tyson! Here is an iconic photograph as a gift from me to you, from head photographer at @mcgregorproductions , @ginger_beard_photos"

So, why are we talking about it, all of a sudden? Well, we are seeing a more humble and respectful Conor all of a sudden. This dosen't mean that the Irish MMA superstar is losing his charm or isn't able to keep his act together, he still went after Floyd Mayweather when Mayweather's fight against Tenshin Nasukawa was announced, but his actions are classier than before. Now, all we have to see is: "If the fans like the new Conor".

Nothing is sure, but Conor is said to be begging for a re-match with Khabib and if he wouldn't get a rematch, as per Conor, he is willing to fight the next in the line or he may even raise the bars higher by fighting Anderson Silva, who knows what's McGregor's future move but UFC 229 showed that he can really bring numbers in, and his F***all image is his USP but what happens if he approaches his upcoming events differently? Let's wait and watch!
