The trilogy fight between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor is shaping up to be more personal than their rematch was earlier in 2021.

Poirier revealed Sunday on Twitter that McGregor didn't follow through on the charitable donation he promised ahead of UFC 257 in January.

McGregor said during the leadup to their second fight - which the Irishman lost by second-round TKO - that he would donate $500,000 to Poirier's The Good Fight Foundation.

Both sides confirmed during fight week that McGregor had delivered on his promise and the process of beginning to transfer the funds was underway.

McGregor responded to Poirier on Twitter, saying his team has been waiting since January for details regarding how his donation would be used.

Before the rematch, the former two-division champion acknowledged that Poirier planned to build an MMA gym for disadvantaged youth in his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana.

In the final tweet exchanged between the two lightweights, Poirier reiterated that McGregor's team stopped responding about the donation. He also offered a prediction for their third bout, which is set to headline UFC 264 on July 10.
