So Uncle Dana scratched any chance of Mcgregor Vs Poirier in 2020. He called ESPN and had them create a new PPV date on Jan. 23rd 2021. Which lead to a series of tweets from the two fighters. This looks to be more than an “exhibition” bout as Mcgregor called it. He not only is facing a southpaw boxer in preparation for the boxing match with Manny Pacquiao. He is setting himself up to be the number one LW contender.
Mcgregor is known for bringing the bright lights and setting big stages. This would make it one of the largest arenas the UFC has ever been held in. The last time these two faced off they weren’t even the main event. Hell they weren’t even the co-main. But yet it was the night Mystic Mac was born.
Mcgregor Vs Poirer will also feature a handsome donation to The Good Fight Foundation, an organization ran by Dustin Poirier. Mcgregor has pledge $500grand in which Poirier promised to build a gym in Lafayette, Louisiana and the price of membership is good grades.
Khabib Nurmagomedov also made a large undisclosed donation to The Good Fight Foundation after his title fight with Poirer.
What The Hell Is Diaz Talking About?
Seriously? @ me on twitter if you figure this one out. Diaz is 1-1 vs Mcgregor and 0-0 vs Poirier. Maybe he means he smoked “with” these two. That would honestly make more sense.
