There was little to no trash talk from ‘The Notorious’. Instead, he maintained he had nothing but respect for ‘The Diamond’ for the way he bounced back after the loss. McGregor was also very complimentary of the charity work Dustin had been doing through his foundation ‘The Good Fight Foundation’ he also pledged to donate $500,000 to the foundation once the fight was over. 

However, recent tweets by Dustin Poirier suggest that it was all smoke and mirrors and that a donation never came from Conor McGregor and his team.
