Dustin Poirier Apologizes For Going Public With Conor McGregor Donation Spat
Dustin Poirier has issued an apology for publicly addressing a donation spat with Conor McGregor.
Poirier and McGregor are on tap to go one-on-one on July 10. The trilogy fight will headline UFC 264 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The score is 1-1 with McGregor picking up the September 2014 win, and Poirier getting his revenge back in January.
Recently, Poirier and McGregor got into a verbal exchange on social media. After McGregor predicted a front kick knockout win in the trilogy bout, Poirier accused McGregor of reneging on his donation for the Good Fight Foundation.
Poirier took to his Twitter account to offer an apology for making the issue public.

“I am very passionate about my charity as you all know. I jumped the gun and took private matters between Conor & my foundation public. My mistake, we live, we learn. Spreading positivity & doing good is my goal! I feel like I have brought a negative energy, and personal opinions into something I am working so hard on that gives people a reason to cheer and smile. I will take this in stride and continue to fight the Good Fight. New Goal coming soon, and it is a BIG one. Thank you to all who is involved and all the supporters who believe in our vision.”
