When UFC star Conor McGregor said, “No More Mr. Nice Guy,” he wasn’t lying.

On Friday, Conor McGregor brought back his persona ‘Mystic Mac’ and posted his prediction about his upcoming fight with Dustin Poirier on Instagram.

“The prediction is in! I’m going to win the trilogy fight via A Front Kick to the nose. Round number 4. His Nose needs straightenin and I’m Rhinoplasty,” McGregor said on his Instagram.

Two days later, Poirier responded and lit Twitter on fire when he said McGregor never donated to his Good Fight Foundation charity.

“That’s a fun prediction! @TheNotoriousMMA you also predicted a donation to my foundation and you and your team stopped responding after the fight in January. See you soon. July 10th Paid In Full!,” Poirier said on Twitter.
Before their fight back in January at UFC 257, McGregor had committed to a $500,000 donation to Poirier’s Good Fight Foundation charity.
McGregor would counter with another tweet.
“A donation, not a debt,” McGregor said. “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.
Poirier wasn’t having any of what McGregor was saying and said the offer wasn’t debt and said he will win in July.
“100% never a debt. You offered, we accepted, and like I said your Team never responded to our emails regarding the process of where funds would be put to work! July 10th you will taste defeat yet Again,” Poirier said.
The Irish superstar did not take that tweet lightly and responded Monday morning.

“You’re ripped you inbred hillbilly,” McGregor wrote. “Why do you wink with your ears? You f*cking brain dead hillbilly. 500k with no plan in place. Ye hang tight. Fool. You must be new to money. Fight is off btw. I’m going to fight someone else on the 10th. Good luck on your old contract kid.”

Poirier would respond with a nine-second clip of McGregor getting knocked out in their fight and simply writing “ok.” McGregor would reply with a picture of their first fight in which McGregor finished him.

McGregor and Poirier are scheduled to fight on July 10 at UFC 264. There has been no other talk between the two, and the UFC hasn’t commented. Fans are speculating that the pair of lightweights are just trying to sell the fight — but no one really knows.
