UFC 257 concluded with Dustin Poirier defeating Conor McGregor. Now Poirier is claiming that Notorious didn’t pay up a promise to a charity.

Dustin Poirier claimed on Twitter that Conor McGregor stiffed the Good Fight Foundation for $500,000. MMA Junkie has confirmed that banking information has been exchanged, but “the last of the transfer details were being finalized.”

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!

We thanked him because his team reached out fight week to initiate the process but ghosted us the past 2 months after the fight. My foundation has reached out 3 times since with no reply. We’ve moved past it! We will be announcing our next goal soon! Its a big one

Conor McGregor hasn’t responded publicly to this accusation. It might take some patience because $500,000 is a lot of money to move around. Still, someone like McGregor should have no trouble securing that much cash.

Let’s hope that those funds transfer. Dustin Poirier likely wouldn’t have any issues calling Conor McGregor out again if the wait continues on that donation.
