Former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor made good on his promise to donate $500,000 to charity except he didn’t go through Dustin Poirier’s foundation.
Instead, the Irish superstar donated directly to the Boys & Girls Club of Acadiana in Poirier’s hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana.
The donation comes after a public spat when Poirier claimed McGregor failed to deliver on his promise to donate $500,000 to his charity following their rematch back in January. McGregor and his manager Audie Attar both eventually fired back at Poirier while saying that the donation would be made in good faith once there was an adequate plan in place for where the money would be spent.
Poirier and McGregor will square off in the main event of UFC 264 in Las Vegas on July 10th.
