Dustin Poirier took to Twitter this week to acknowledge that he made a mistake by publicly criticizing Conor McGregor for not following through on his pledge prior to UFC 257 in January to donate $500,000 to Poirier’s foundation, The Good Fight Foundation, with the goal being to build a gym for disadvantaged youth in Lafayette, LA (Poirier’s hometown).

Poirier called out McGregor on Sunday, which led to McGregor responding by saying his team had been working on getting details on exactly how the money would be used. McGregor has been active in donating supplies to front-live workers in Ireland during the coronavirus pandemic.

McGregor and Poirier are now set to face off in the final fight of their trilogy at UFC 264 on July 10th, and McGregor even suggested that he might get another opponent for UFC 264 following Poirier calling him out, but everything seems to be moving forward now.

“I’m very passionate about my charity, as you all know,” Poirier wrote. “I jumped the gun, and took private matters between Conor and my foundation public. My mistake, we live, we learn. Spreading positivity and doing good is my goal! I feel like I have brought a negative energy and personal opinions into something I am working so hard on, that gives people a reason to cheer and smile.”
