One of the most polarizing athletes in the world, Conor McGregor visited a Boston firehouse this week to deliver World Series tickets to some "true, proper heroes."

The MMA fighter, who just a couple weeks ago was defeated in the lightweight championship fight at UFC 229, is on a tour to promote his new Proper No. 12 whiskey. For every case sold, $5 will be donated to first responders.

"You guys are true, proper heroes," McGregor says in the video. "It’s an honor to be here and see this true, proper fire station. We brought gifts, tickets to the World Series. That’s our respect for you guys."

Apparently he only had 10 tickets to give out and the fire chief joked about how he was going to decide which of his firefighters would get to go.

"Well have to fight for these like you," the chief told McGregor. 

Game 1 of the World Series is Tuesday night,.
