Dustin Poirier has received the ‘Sleepy McGregor’ necklace that Jake Paul sent him yesterday. The No. 1 lightweight plans to auction the $ 100,000 diamond necklace for charity and donate the process to the Good Fight Foundation.
After Poirier’s victory over Conor McGregor at UFC 264, Paul offered “The Diamond” his bespoke necklace as a gift. Poirier, who had his second win in a row against the Irish, gladly accepted the offer.
After receiving the “Sleepy McGregor” necklace, Poirier uploaded a picture of himself posing with the sophisticated jewel. He noted that the chain is being auctioned in his hometown to “do something big”.
“I got the sleepy Mac chain from Jake Paul. I’ll be auctioning it off for the Good Fight Foundation soon to do something big in Lafayette,” Poirier wrote on Twitter.
While interacting with ESPN MMA, Paul had said that Poirier would post a picture with the chain “Sleepy McGregor” to make the Irishman look “stupid”.
The YouTuber turned boxer teamed up with Poirier to ridicule their mutual enemy, McGregor. Last December, Paul ridiculed ‘The Diamond’ in his curse against the former two-division champion.
“Let’s auction this thing for $ 500,000” – Jake Paul on how much money he wants to raise from the “Sleepy McGregor” chain
Jake Paul hopes his “Sleepy McGregor” chain will raise at least $ 500,000 – the amount Conor McGregor promised to donate to Dustin Poirier’s charity.
“Let’s put this thing up for $ 500,000 so that we can actually fulfill McGregor’s fake promises,” wrote Jake Paul.
The rivalry between McGregor and Poirier began to brew after “The Diamond” accused the Irishman of not delivering on his promised donation. In response, McGregor claimed he didn’t know where the Good Fight Foundation would use his money.
After several conversations with McGregor on social media, Poirier accepted that he should have kept the matter a secret. However, “The Notorious” donated $ 500,000 to the Boys & Girls Club of Acadiana, a Louisiana-based charity.
Now that Poirier is going to auction the expensive necklace he received from Jake Paul, the Good Fight Foundation could raise a hefty donation that was originally supposed to come from McGregor.
