Shortly after predicting he would beat Dustin Poirier with a front kick knockout in the fourth round at UFC 264, Poirier scoffed at the bold prediction and called out Conor McGregor for backing out of a charity donation.

Ahead of their UFC 257 rematch, “The Notorious” has noted that he would be donating $500,000 USD to Poirier’s The Good Fight Foundation. Reports reveal that both the verbal promise saw McGregor and Poirier’s teams exchanging bank information ahead of the fight with plans for the donation to be made after. Responding to a fan, Poirier questions the sincerity of McGregor and revealing that his foundation has made three attempts to reach out without a response following his victory.

The call-out caught the attention of McGregor who outlined how the donation was not a debt and subtly questioning the legitimacy of The Good Fight Foundation as they did not detail where the money would be going.

Check out the back and forth between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor who are set to face off for a trilogy fight at UFC 264, July 10 below.
