A touching new clip shows Dwayne â€œThe Rockâ€ Johnson giving Zimbabwe-born UFC fighter Themba Gorimbo a meaningful gift. It begins with Gorimbo recounting his experience of receiving a social media message from Johnson. Johnson later sneaks up behind Gorimbo, surprising him as he shares how grateful he was for his acknowledgment. The duo then share an emotional hug, and Gorimbo is seen promising Johnson to become a champion. â€œYou inspired me to work hard, man,â€ he tells Johnson.
Later in the clip, Gorimbo shows Johnson where heâ€™s been sleeping in order to train in Miami. He says that since there werenâ€™t any rooms left, he told owners heâ€™d be willing to sleep anywhere just to get an opportunity to train. He then revealed a humble area in the corner of a room with a pull-out couch that he sleeps on. Johnson is moved when the UFC fighter shows him a list labeled â€œmy reason,â€ hanging on the wall. The list included all the reasons heâ€™s working so hard to become a champion, including his family, God, his village in Zimbabwe, and more.

Johnson is later seen revealing new house that he got for Gorimbo to stay in. â€œWelcome home,â€ he then tells the athlete. â€œThis place is yours. You donâ€™t have to think about anything. The only thing you think about is your family, getting them over here, getting them with you, your training and becoming champion.â€
Johnson shared the clip on Instagram alongside a sweet message to Gorimbo. â€œYou and your family enjoy your new house brother,â€ it begins. â€œLights are on. Bills are paid. Keep your â€˜My Reasonâ€™ list close, keep taking care of your people and Iâ€™m honored to play a very, very small role in your $7 bucks journey. $7 bucks. Iâ€™ve been there too. Got your back brother. Letâ€™s get to work on that dream of becoming @ufc champion one day.â€
