Dustin Poirier & Conor McGregor Exchange Heated Words Over Donation

The newfound chumminess between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor has blown up in smoke.

Poirier and McGregor have had a rivalry that’s been well-documented. The two are 1-1 against one another. There was a fierce build for their first fight back in September 2014, which McGregor won via first-round TKO.

The lead-up to their January 2021 rematch was far tamer. Both men showed respect for one another ahead of their rematch and McGregor even pledged to donate $500,000 to Poirier’s Good Fight Foundation. Poirier won the rematch via second-round TKO.

The two have agreed to a trilogy fight for July 10 and things have gotten hostile. “The Diamond” took to Twitter to respond to McGregor’s front kick knockout prediction. He did so by claiming McGregor reneged on the donation.

“That’s a fun prediction! You also predicted a donation to my foundation and you and your team stopped responding after the fight in January. See you soon. July 10th Paid In Full!”

McGregor responded, claiming Poirier never got back to his team on how the money would be spent.

“A donation, not a debt. We’ve been awaiting the plans for the money that never came. I do with all my donations. Know where it’s going dot for dot. Otherwise, it goes walking. As is the case with a lot of these foundations, sadly. You took the McG over the belt shows I was right.”

Poirier went on to say that McGregor’s team never responded to his emails.

“100% never a debt. You offered, we accepted, and like I said your Team never responded to our emails regarding the process of where funds would be put to work! July 10th you will taste defeat yet again.”

McGregor fired back with an expletive-laced rant.

“My team does their due diligence to make sure every donation meets the mark. My generosity is known. You will pay with your brain for this attempt at smearing my name. Shooting ass shelling ass [expletive]. Little [expletive] kicks from a shell. Good luck when you’re caught. You’re [expletive].”

McGregor doubled down on how he feels about Poirier’s claim and said he’s no longer taking the trilogy fight.

“You’re ripped you inbred hillbilly. Why do you wink with your ears? You [expletive] brain dead hillbilly. 500k with no plan in place. Ye hang tight. Fool. You must be new to money. The fight is off btw. I’m going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck on your old contract kid.”

Poirier’s response was short and sweet.
