Dustin Poirier & Conor McGregor’s Manager Argue Over Donation Dispute

Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor have exchanged heated words and now the “Notorious” one’s manager has gotten involved.

Poirier and McGregor began their history with one another as rivals. McGregor won their first encounter via first-round TKO back in September 2014. The two became chummy by their January 2021 rematch, which was won by Poirier via second-round TKO. McGregor promised to donate $500,000 to Poirier’s Good Fight Foundation.

Things have taken a turn, however. After McGregor predicted a front kick knockout over “The Diamond,” Poirier claimed McGregor reneged on the donation. This led to both men trading barbs on social media. McGregor even claimed he will no longer fight Poirier on July 10.

McGregor’s manager, Audie Attar, caught wind of the back-and-forth exchanges and he chimed in.

“Dustin! Why you frontin? Did you forget the face-to-face meeting we just had in Utah with our families? Where we stood by you as you tried to get more money from the UFC? Conor is as generous as it gets. Don’t dismiss his business savvy. He always gets it done. This is a low move man.”

Poirier responded about two hours later.

“His team hasn’t responded to our emails about anything involving my foundation after they reached out to us originally. All good, dinner and talk was great but don’t get on Twitter and be a tough guy lol.”

As it stands now, Poirier and McGregor are scheduled to collide a third time on July 10. The lightweight bout will serve as the main event for UFC 264.
