Conor McGregor threatens ‘inbred hillbilly’ Dustin Poirier that UFC 264 fight ‘is off’ amid donation dispute – MMA Root



Conor McGregor had it with Dustin Poirier.

A public controversy between the UFC stars arose over the weekend after Poirier challenged McGregor for leaving him and his Good Fight Foundation in the dark about a $ 500,000 donation to be made in connection with their UFC 257 fight at January. The donation has not yet gone through, Poirier said, and attempts to contact McGregor have come to nothing.

McGregor and his manager Audi Attar both responded to challenge Poirier’s claim, and Monday, “The Notorious” sparked an even more violent response to Poirier, including stating that their upcoming fight in the UFC 264 trilogy was “disabled.”

“You tore up the inbred redneck,” McGregor wrote. “Why are you winking your ears? You fucking brain, dead-breasted redneck. 500k without a plan. You hold on tight. Fool. You must be new to money.

“The fight is over [by the way]… I’m going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck with your old contractor.

McGregor stressed that his team takes due diligence when contributing to charity, and threatened that Poirier “will pay with his brain for this attempt to tarnish my name.”

The UFC 264 fight between Poirier and McGregor is expected to headline the pay-per-view tournament on July 10, although the promotion has not officially announced the fight. In January, Poirier defeated McGregor by TKO in the second round, equalizing their streak 1-1. They fought for the first time at UFC 178, where McGregor defeated Poirier by TKO in the first round.
