Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor are beefing over a $500,000 donation that never showed up.
Prior to the second fight between the two UFC stars, McGregor pledged to donate $500,000 to Poirier’s foundation. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)
Well, according to Poirier, the money never showed.
That’s a fun prediction! @TheNotoriousMMA 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!

We thanked him because his team reached out fight week to initiate the process but ghosted us the past 2 months after the fight. My foundation has reached out 3 times since with no reply. We’ve moved past it! We will be announcing our next goal soon! Its a big one???? https://t.co/mtiOFBsd2q

However, following Poirier airing out the claim on social media, McGregor said the donation wasn’t made because his rival’s foundation didn’t provide specific plans for the money.
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.

This is a very unexpected storyline leading up to the rubber match between these two fighters. We should be focusing on the action heading into the July 10th bout, and instead, we’re sitting here debating a charity pledge.
It’s very strange to say the least.

Having said all of that, I’m super excited to see what happens July 10. Poirier and McGregor split their first two fights, and it’s now time to break the tie.
Seeing as how badly the Irish-born star was defeated in early 2021, he better make some huge adjustments if he hopes to win.
