Conor McGregor has donated two tickets for the sold out UFC 229 to the Dublin charity of Inner City Helping Homeless.

The ICHH will auction off the tickets for the October 6 event to help raise money for the charity, with fans having 48 hours to place their bid on the company’s Facebook page. The bidding window will close on Sunday at 9pm (GMT).

“Thanks to McGregor Sports and Entertainment we have 2 tickets for UFC 229 on October 6th in Las Vegas as Dublins own champ champ Conor McGregor takes on Khabib Nurmagomedov for the UFC Lightweight title,” said Anthony Flynn, head of the ICHH.

“This will be the biggest fight in UFC history and is already a sell out but we are giving you the chance to get 2 tickets and support our volunteer run, non government funded frontline outreach and advocacy charity in the process.”

The ICHH was formed in 2013 to help those less fortunate on the streets of Dublin. Every night of the week, volunteers go out into the city to offer support and supplies to those sleeping rough, while also providing an advocacy service to help families and individuals navigate out of homelessness.

Last year, they had over 37,000 interactions with those living on Dublin’s streets.
