Dustin Poirier is one of the nicest guys both inside and outside the Octagon. Poirier’s humanitarian efforts have inspired millions around the world, and even prompted the former lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and UFC president, Dana White, to make their efforts towards charity as well.
Earlier, Dustin Poirier has raised the excess of $26,000 for the fight kit which he auctioned following his vicious second-round KO win over Conor McGregor back at UFC 257. Poirier promised that the amount raised would go straight to the Good Fight Foundation, his charity to help those in need.
It has almost become a tradition for Poirier to auction his fight kit after every fight, and he did just that after he auctioned off his fight kit from UFC 264. Dustin Poirier raised $28,300 from his fight kit, which was live on eBay for bidders to bid, and raised a hefty sum for his charity the Good Fight Foundation.
Dustin Poirier and his Good Fight Foundation
Earlier, fighters like Khabib Nurmagomedov have donated $100,000 for Poirier’s foundation, with UFC president Dana White matching the same amount in their charitable efforts.
Dustin Poirier is widely regarded as one of the most vicious strikers in the division, and his incredible performances against Conor McGregor stand to be the testimony of the same. While one cannot deny his ruthlessness inside the Octagon, Poirier is a very calm person, who likes to extend his support to the needy and helpless through his charity.

In the past, Dustin Poirier has teamed up with the likes of former boxing champion Manny Pacquiao to help the Batwa pygmies of Uganda, also known as the most bullies group of people in the entire world. Earlier, he had partnered with Justin Wren’s ‘Fight for the Forgotten charity, to build water wells for a devastating orphanage in Uganda.
Dustin Poirier’s humanitarian continues to inspire other mixed martial artists and people in positions to do their bid in an effort to give back to the community. Needless to say, it has also inspired millions around the world to do anything they can to give back to society.
