McGregor donates £25,000 to injured Curtis

Conor McGregor has donated £25,000 to Irish MMA fighter Ryan Curtis after he sustained “life-changing” injuries in a training accident.

Fighter Leah McCourt said Curtis, 31, had sustained “a broken back, a broken neck and a dislocated spine”.

Curtis has been a professional since 2015 and has fought on Cage Warriors and Bellator cards.

McGregor posted on social media that he was “sending my support and well wishes” to the Dublin fighter.

Belfast boxer Michael Conlan, MMA fighters Molly McCann and Dillon Danis and coach John Kavanagh have also donated to Curtis and his family.

In a post on Instagram, Belfast’s McCourt said “there is no exact end date as to when his treatment will be complete”.

“Ryan will never be able to do what he loves, and fight or train in MMA again. A sport he has dedicated his life to from the age of 11,” she added.

“Ryan has the most infectious positive outlook in life and has been through some of the most horrific circumstances, always coming out a better human, man and friend.

“He is still showing his positive outlook, his determination and mindset to overcome yet another challenge that life has presented.”
