So the now officially confirmed Dustin Poirier vs Conor McGregor fight on July 10 has yet another wrinkle to the story.
After back and forth verbal jabs between Poirier and McGregor, the UFC finally made the fight official for UFC 264. The prior respect shown by both men was seemingly gone after Poirier stated that Conor McGregor and his team had not paid the promised $500,000 donation to his Good Fight Foundation charity as promised after January’s UFC PPV event.
McGregor himself said that he wanted to see where the money was going to be used before he made the monetary commitment. Well, with McGregor’s recent comments, UFC 264 is going to go ahead with a main event full of controversy.
‘@DustinPoirier My team does their due diligence to make sure every donation meets the mark’ Conor McGregor wrote on Twitter earlier today. ‘My generosity is known. You will pay with your brain for this attempt at smearing my name.’
‘Shooting a** shelling ass b*tch’ McGregor continued. ‘Little b*tch kicks from a shell. Good luck when you’re caught. You’re f*cked.’
Dustin Poirier has now taken to Twitter to apologise to McGregor and say that he ‘jumped the gun.’

‘I will take this in stride and continue to fight the good fight!” Added The Diamond. “New Goal coming soon and it is a BIG one,’ Poirier noted. ‘Thank you to all who is involved and all the supporters who believe in our vision.’
