Conor McGregor has responded to Dustin Poirier after the latter took to social media to claim that McGregor’s donation to The Good Fight Foundation never came in.
In response to The Diamond, Conor McGregor wrote that he promised a donation and not a debt. The Irishman added that his team was never informed of the plans for the money, something that McGregor always keeps track of for all his donations.
The former UFC double champion ended his message with a subtle shot at Poirier for choosing to fight McGregor for the third time over the vacant UFC lightweight title.
Here’s what Conor McGregor wrote on Twitter in response to Dustin Poirier:
It didn’t take long for Poirier to respond to Conor McGregor. The former interim UFC lightweight champion wrote that it was never a debt but rather an offer that Poirier’s team accepted from McGregor.
Poirier also wrote that McGregor’s team never responded to e-mails regarding the process of where the funds would be put to work. The Diamond concluded his tweet with a bold statement, writing that on July 10th, McGregor will taste defeat once again.
