Now Poirier and Conor McGregor are reportedly set to fight later this year and Ferguson, who refused to fight at UFC 254 to support Poirier getting paid more, is calling Poirier a sellout for accepting the fight with the former two-division UFC champion. Ferguson said the following on Twitter:
I fight for a lot of things, but nothing more important to me than fighting for change and giving back @TheGoodFightFDN. The Generosity of @TheNotoriousMMA will help countless in need. I have accepted, Connor has accepted, and the fans demand it! Let’s go @ufc @espnmma— The Diamond (@DustinPoirier) October 8, 2020
What A Sell Out, Taking A Bribe From An International Terrorist. Good Job Kid. I Represent America. All That Talk About The Fight Game Only To Be Afraid & Be Left Behind Out Of The Loop. Take The Money & Be Proud Fake. pic.twitter.com/VpKamihpzI— Tony Ferguson (@TonyFergusonXT) October 8, 2020
Poirier has yet to respond to being called a sell-out at this time by Ferguson.
