Dwayne Johnson gifts Zimbabwean UFC fighter Themba Gorimbo a fully furnished house in Miami

Miami | Hollywood superstar Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as ‘The Rock,’ has shown his compassion and generosity towards a fellow athlete.

UFC fighter Themba Gorimbo garnered attention when he opened up about his financial struggles, revealing that he had a meager $7 in his bank account before his victorious performance at UFC Vegas 73.

During his post-fight interview in May, Gorimbo opened up about the hardships he faced on his journey to America. He revealed that upon arriving, he had no money and struggled to make ends meet.

With limited funds, he could barely afford transportation to the gym. Thankfully, a friend came to his aid by sending him $200, which provided much-needed support and helped him survive during those challenging early weeks.

‘The Rock’ took notice of Gorimbo’s plight and was deeply moved by his determination and talent. In a heartwarming gesture, he promised to meet and help the Zimbabwean fighter:

And true to his word, recent media reports have indicated that Johnson went above and beyond to help ‘The Answer’ by gifting him a fully furnished house in the vibrant city of Miami.
