Khabib trolls Conor McGregor as he wades into row with Poirier over claims UFC star never paid $500k charity donation

KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV has mocked Conor McGregor after it emerged the UFC superstar has yet to make good on his promise to donate to Dustin Poirier's charity.

Prior to their clash at UFC 257, McGregor announced he'd make a £363,375 ($500,000) donation to Poirier's Good Fight Foundation.

But in the early hours of Monday morning, fan favourite Poirier claimed the Irishman's team 'stopped responding' to him after their rematch.

It didn't take long for McGregor's old rival Nurmagomedov to get wind of the news the Dubliner has yet to fulfil his promise.

And the recently-retired Russian poked fun at The Notorious by tweeting a video of a group of men having a disagreement in which one of them said: "Did I give you all a word? I'm taking it back".

McGregor, 32, took exception to Poirier's claim his team stopped responding to him, insisting he was waiting for proof of exactly where his donation would go.

He replied to Poirier: "A donation, not a debt.

"We’ve been awaiting the plans for the money that never came. I do with all my donations.

"Know where it’s going dot for dot. Otherwise it goes walking.

"As is the case with a lot of these foundations, sadly. You took the McG over the belt shows I was right."

McGregor's manager, Paradigm Sports chief Audie Attar, also took offence to Poirier's tweet, saying: "Dustin! Why you frontin'?

"Did you forget the face to face meeting we just had in Utah with our families?

"Where we stood by you as you tried to get more $ from the UFC?

"Conor is as generous as it gets. Don’t dismiss his business savvy. He always gets it done. This is a low move man."

Poirier didn't take kindly to Attar's response, telling the agent not to be a 'be a tough guy'.

The former interim lightweight champion said: "His team hasn't responded to our emails about anything involving my foundation after they reached out to us originally.

"All good, Dinner and talk was great but don't get on Twitter and be a tough guy lol."

The public dispute between McGregor and Poirier will only serve to spice up their summer trilogy fight.

The former featherweight rivals are set to meet for a third and final time on July 10 in the main event of UFC 264.

Former two-division champion McGregor will bid to avenge the devastating second-round KO defeat he suffered to the American in January.

A venue for the blockbuster event has yet to be finalised, although the UFC are hoping to stage the card at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
