Richie McPeak is a sarcoma cancer amputee who lost his leg; Conor McGregor recently received praise for his humanitarian efforts on his behalf. The Irishman received a barrage of thanks for sending the courageous survivor McGregor FAST gear, individualised presents, and autographed gloves.
In an emotional monologue, McPeak revealed that his aggressive sarcoma cancer had resurfaced after a period of remission and he had been encouraged to keep fighting after seeing ‘The Notorious’ knock out Chad Mendes live at UFC 189. An aggressive malignant tumour that affects bones and soft tissues is called a sarcoma.
The survivor used Twitter to thank McGregor and his crew for their assistance in helping him fight his battle. He stated:
“McGregor quick gear was sent to me to aid in the fight against sarcoma cancer by a group of brothers with the hearts of lions and space for kindness. Exclusive jump rope, autographed gloves from the Champ Champ… Thank you from everyone at McGregor Fast Gear and Conor McGregor.
The ex-champion of two divisions replied to the tweet with a heartwarming comment. Tweeting a quotation from McPeak, McGregor wrote:
“I’m Richie McPeak! Legendary work ethics and mentality.”
This year, Conor McGregor is expected to make a comeback. Before their customary match in the octagon, he will coach The Ultimate Fighter (TUFupcoming )’s season alongside Michael Chandler.
Conor McGregor next fight: Former rival predicts a knockout win for the Irishman against Michael Chandler
Eddie Alvarez would be the best person to forecast the result of Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler. The two men have fought each other before; the former UFC lightweight champion lost his championship to the Irishman at UFC 205 in 2016 and faced “Iron” twice in Bellator for the lightweight crown.
McGregor and Chandler will compete against one another in the octagon later this year after being cast as coaches on the forthcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). Due to a leg injury he suffered against Dustin Poirier at UFC 264, McGregor has been out of action for more than a year, and the buzz around his comeback has dominated MMA community conversations on social media.
Conor McGregor is expected to win via KO once more, as Alvarez explained in a recent interview with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour:
“Mike Chandler, if I had to guess, doesn’t wrestle. He will be killed by Conor if he sides with him. It’s not compatible… Conor is far too quick to be hit by anything Mike Chandler throws, despite the bombs he delivers.”
