Conor McGregor Offers To Fight Former Rival Dustin Poirier For Charity

Conor McGregor Offers To Fight Former Rival Dustin Poirier For Charity

Ever since his public falling out with Dana White, Conor McGregor has been on a social media warpath.

The former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion has been very vocal on Twitter and Instagram over the past couple of months.

Whether he's been calling out boxing greats Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao or leaking private messages from the UFC president, McGregor has been hot on the pulse when it comes to his social media game.

But there has been one tweet in particular that has got everyone talking.

The 32-year-old Irishman has called out former rival Dustin Poirier to take part in a charity bout.

In a chain on Twitter, 'The Notorious' said: Hey bro! You want to do an MMA charity fight? Zero to do with the UFC. I will donate half a mill towards your charity for it. Sell it on PPV or work a TV deal and we work out other charities that are close to my heart also. I am engaged in many. Strictly a charity "exhibition"."

He then followed it up with another tweet, saying: "December 12th in the Point depot, Ireland. No weigh ins. Open weight, unified rules. I will arrange all travel fare for you and family. McGregor Sports and Entertainment MMA, in association with The Good Fight Foundation. Charity Mixed Martial Arts!"

Conor McGregor Makes Bold 'Mystic Mac' Prediction For Rematch Against Dustin Poirier

published at11 days ago

Judging from McGregor's series of tweets, it sounds like the one-off event would have absolutely no connection to the UFC with all proceeds set to be donated to charity.

Question marks would be raised as to whether this is legal due to both fighters being contacted to the UFC.

Whether this is a little jab at the UFC or McGregor is genuinely keen on hosting a charitable event, who knows?

One thing is for certain, though, and it's that this would undoubtedly p*** off Dana White.
