Dustin Poirier thanked his rival Conor McGregor for his charitable donation to the Acadiana.
Dustin recently took to his social media to Conor donation of half a million dollars to “The Good Fight Foundation” was never made even though his team suggested the money was sent in. Conor then threatened Dustin by canceling their fight at (UFC 264). Fortunately, the cold heads prevailed and the fight remained intact. However, there was this question about the charitable money McGregor promised to send him. But now we know that, Conor has kept his word.
Conor has donated 500K to the Boys & Girls Club and that is so incredible because at the end of the day helping the community, helping people in need was the mission and goal from the jump. At the end of the day charity wins. Conor didn’t donate it to my charity but it’s not my money, it’s the peoples money. It wasn’t a slap in the face, it was a high five.”
It is nice to see Poirier take the high road with his comments. With all the negativity surrounding this fight now, it is good to see him take it all in stride.
He did provide additional information on his preparation for the fight and even offered a prediction.
“I’m going to bust my ass and be prepared to go in their and make things happen.”
Conor has donated half a million US dollars to another local charity that has worked with the Dustin Poirier Charity in the past. Although the Porier Foundation did not receive the money directly, he is still grateful to (Conor) that the money was ultimately given to those in need, especially since they had worked together in the past.
