Dustin Poiri not only has the reputation of a terrible warrior within the Octagon. He is also known as a hard-working philanthropist outside of the cage, where he and his wife, Jolie Poirier, run the Good Struggle Foundation.
This charitable mission includes raising funds to address issues such as food safety, health and disaster relief around Poiriers ’hometown of Lafayette and LA. In 2018, the charity expanded into a registered international nonprofit organization.
The charity’s initial funds were put up for auction by Poirier for his outdated combat kits. These dresses cost more than $ 10,000. Now, after UFC 264, Poirier and the fund have no chance to thank anyone but Jake Paul.
Poirier recently put up for auction one of Paul’s “sleeping McGregor” chains, which he ordered for $ 100,000. In this chain is a McGregor statue in a pose about the end of Pirier and McGregor 2. A knockout version of McGregor was shown holding a NyQuil bottle.
Paul submitted this piece in the days before UFC 264, as part of a trolling action against McGregor. Persistent in mocking McGregor and urging him to fight the former UFC champion, Paul wore the chain when he competed in UFC 264 last weekend.
In this calendar year, Poirie TKO’d offered Paul Chain for the second time after McGregor. Poe no doubt accepted the joy of McGregor’s tragic rage around his recent fights.
And now, according to Instagram, Poirier has received a valuable adornment.
“Get a sleeping mac chain from Jake Paul today,” Poirier wrote. “I’ll put it up for auction soon for the Good Struggle Foundation.”
Poirier also noted that the chain will help “do something big for Lafayette.”
When he saw the chain removed, Paul said he hoped the chain would raise $ 500,000. Paul said the amount “fulfills McGregor’s false promises.” The line was about McGregor’s proposal to donate half a million dollars to The Good Fight Foundation for UFC 257 in January. After this incident came and went, Pirier blew up McGregor for failing to deliver the promised donation.
Several times back and forth, McGregor eventually donated $ 500,000 to a private charity based in Lafayette.
