Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier agree to rematch for charity

Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier agree to rematch for charity

Last week the talk was about Conor McGregor making a return to boxing to face world champion Manny Pacquiao, now McGregor has ‘agreed’ to a charity MMA bout with former opponent Dustin Poirier.

McGregor was responding via Twitter to Daniel Cormier, who asked was the Irishman really willing to face anyone,  as McGregor stated after releasing private messages between himself and UFC supremo Dana White. Cormier had discussed it on ESPN’s DC and Helwani show.

That above clip made Conor take to Twitter to respond, calling DC, ‘a fat fool’.

“I asked for May you fat fool, what you saying? I fought in January and tried to go again but was purposely held back to be an alternate for a July fight. Wait 7 whole fucking months and “maybe” I’d get to fight? Are you stupid? What are you saying mate?
I asked for May vs ANYONE!”

At this point Poirier jumped in saying ‘Conor?’ in which McGregor responded by asking if Poirier fancied a charity bout in Dublin in December.

Dustin agreed via Twitter, whether the UFC and Dana White in particular will allow the bout to go ahead remains to be seen.

“I’m in! Lets do it! A lot of people will benefit from this @TheGoodFightFDN” Poirier replied.

If the charity fight goes ahead, McGregor stated a date of December 12th at The Point Arena in Dublin. Possible PPV or TV deal to make money for charities.

Would you be interested in a McGregor charity bout? Why not just fight Poirier in the UFC?
