Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier faceoff

It looks like the recent back and forth between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier has turned really ugly with Notorious claiming to call off the trilogy bout against the former interim champion. The former dual champion in a recent post on Twitter rained down on the Diamond for smearing his name after Poirier accused McGregor of never forwarding the donation money McGregor had promised to Poirier’s foundation, the Good Fight Foundation.

In what looked like an absolutely enraged McGregor, the Notorious explained why the donation has been delayed and claimed that Poirier’s foundation had no plans laid out for where the money was going to be used after its disposal. McGregor also claimed that Poirier’s team stopped responding when they were asked the details about the utilization of funds.

Meanwhile, Poirier claimed how McGregor’s team has been unresponsive since the fight ended back in January and feels that McGregor is running away from the promised amount towards the foundation.

In a series of back and forth, the Notorious laid claim to how he intends on giving the money for the foundation. However, his team is yet to verify the whereabouts of where that money will go. The Notorious claimed that his team is following the same procedure they follow when making donations for other foundations.

Dustin Poirier stepped over a title opportunity to fight Conor McGregor for the UFC’s lightweight champion at UFC 264. Michael Chandler and Charles Oliveira are set to fight for the title, and needless to say, Poirier vs Conor was scheduled to be a potential #1 fight for the UFC’s lightweight championship.

With the Notorious openly stating that he wants to fight someone else? Who do you think is the best opponent for Conor McGregor?
