Conor McGregor has donated $500,000 to Dustin Poirier’s charity

Posted by

Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier were enemies the second they stepped into the octagon but the two have shared nothing but respect for each other since the end of the bout.

UFC 257 was an explosive fight night with Poirier vs McGregor 2 being the pinnacle of the night and Dustin didn’t disappoint as he win by TKO in the second round.

He dealt some deadly leg kicks to Conor putting him off balance and seriously hurting him before unleashing a flurry of punches and finishing the match earlier than many expected.

Conor has been extremely humble since then and according to MMA Junkie has made a very notable donation towards Dustin Poirier’s charity ‘The Good Fight Foundation’.

The Good Fight Foundation is a charity which “helps bridge the gap in academic success by providing transportation and tutoring” in what is called “Project Learn.”

Poirier confirmed with MMA Junkie that he will use McGregor’s money to build an MMA gym where all fees are covered in return for young people committing to good conduct and dedication to school work.
