• Conor McGregor Cancels Trilogy Fight With Dustin Poirier After Latest Controversy

At UFC 257, Dustin Poirier defeated Conor McGregor via TKO. They are 1-1 against each other after that fight and agreed to do a trilogy fight at UFC 264 on July 10th.

Before, their second fight earlier this year, McGregor agreed to donate $500,000 to Poirier’s charity, but Poirier has now called him out for not doing it.

Here’s what he tweeted:

“That’s a fun prediction! @TheNotoriousMMA you also predicted a donation to my foundation and you and your team stopped responding after the fight in January.

See you soon.

July 10th Paid In Full!”

This led to McGregor’s manager Audie Attar replying the following to Dustin:

“Dustin! Why you frontin? Did you forget the face to face meeting we just had in Utah with our families? Where we stood by you as you tried to get more $ from the UFC?

Conor is as generous as it gets. Don’t dismiss his business savvy. He always gets it done. This is a low move man”

Dustin then replied the following to him:

“His team hasn’t responded to our emails about anything involving my foundation after they reached out to us originally. All good, Dinner and talk was great but don’t get on Twitter and be a tough guy lol.”

McGregor had the following to say about this:

“A donation, not a debt. We’ve been awaiting the plans for the money that never came. I do with all my donations. Know where it’s going dot for dot. Otherwise it goes walking. As is the case with a lot of these foundations, sadly. You took the McG over the belt shows I was right.”

Dustin replied the following after this:

“100% never a debt. You offered, we accepted, and like I said your Team never responded to our emails regarding the process of where funds would be put to work! July 10th you will taste defeat yet Again.”

McGregor then fired back for smearing his name:

“My team does their due diligence to make sure every donation meets the mark. My generosity is known. You will pay with your brain for this attempt at smearing my name.

Shooting a$$ shelling a$$ b*tch. Little b*tch kicks from a shell. Good luck when you’re caught. You’re f***ed.”

McGregor then said that their trilogy fight is off and Dustin replied with “ok”, followed by footage of him TKOing him in their last fight.

“You’re ripped you inbred hillbilly. Why do you wink with your ears? You f***ing brain dead hillbilly. 500k with no plan in place. Ye hang tight. Fool. You must be new to money. The fight is off btw. I’m going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck on your old contract kid.”

McGregor vs. Poirier 2 was one of UFC’s biggest selling fights of all time, as UFC 257 did 1.6 million PPV buys.

Is this controversy a way to make their trilogy fight sell even more? Time will tell.
