    The fact he's not the least bit salty about the donation going to a different charity, but is simply happy that the money is going to any charity after all, really shows Dustin's strength of character. Hope he knocks petty McGregor out again in July.


    Gonna be fixed... $$$

  • marleybean

    Money, money, money, of course he didn't take the Olivera fight, he'd get destroyed, tap out a submission for sure. Sold out.

    I agree with Dustin, they’re tied so do a tie breaker. Conner may be fading but he still demands respect for what he’s done for the sport and for Dustin. Well done.

    It's funny how people take for granted the mental aspect "diamond" nickname because much of it is Dustin mental toughness instead of his ability to overcome physical punishement


    How anyone could not root for this man is beyond me. This man is as humble and generous as any you will meet and I’m rooting for him to get the belt! Great guy, great father, great fighter!💪💪🇺🇸🇺🇸

    It’s such a hard fight... on one hand we all want the humble good man too win again in Dustin... but we all wanna see Connor motivated again and tearing through competition like old days. if he loses again... that’s gone. High stakes. So hyped for the fight.

    It was a slap in the face but something tells me Dustin wouldn't mind getting punched in the face for the donation. Says more about conors ego than anything.

  • Mark Baker

    If Conor loser this one then as an MMA fighter he will no longer be the Connor of the past that people are still paying to see waiting for it to be like the past. He did awesome things befokijg champ champ and eliminating his original division plus everything before the UFC and then to earn so much. He is a legend. But this fight is pivotal.

    Kumbaya. Ariel is such a douche. I can't stand him after all these years I still don't even like him a little bit. I love it when Fighters like Rampage would just humiliate him

  • Jon Holmes

    Lolololol. Keep it real Dustin the McGregor fight pays 10 fold what Oliveira would pay belt or not

  • E-Man

    Every one saying that Connor dissed Dustin, and "fook your foundation" and that Dustin is just playing the mind games by thanking Connor for the donation, you're a fool, Connor and Dustin are like legit homies. They not only have mad respect for each other, but there's absolutely zero beef or anything personal between them. Just unsettled business, and it's just that, business, nothing else. Anything leading up to the fight that may or may not happen or be said is straight up acting man, all caaaappppp for the money and for the views. ... These dudes love each other. Probably more than most.

    The 500000 Donation of Conor was just damage control to try to save his image. He doesn't care about anyone but himself. If Dustin hadn't called him out he wouldn't have payed a single penny to a charity whatsoever

    Dustin Poirier is a class act and probably my favorite fighter of all time its between him and Stephen Thompson. Wether he can beat Olivera or Chandler remains to be seen but if anybody deserves the belt it's him. We love you Dustin

    Dustin is pure class, Conor Mcgregor could have all the money in the world, but you can't buy class, he is a classless lowlife.

    People say dustin is fighting for the money but I think hes just doing so that he can get the fight over with. He doesnt want to get the title and than later on hear conor trash talking him and pissing him off. Why not do it while his mind is fresh.
