UFC lightweight contender Dustin Poirier recently did an interview with ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, where the two covered numerous topics.

During the interview, Poirier reveled some interesting information about his career and where he wants it to go.

He first revealed that the UFC did offer him a title shot against Charles Oliveira at UFC 262, but he turned it down for the trilogy fight with McGregor instead.

Poirier also addressed McGregor and the whole donation situation.

“The whole thing with my tweet after I said that, my apology was more for me because I felt like I attached my foundation, something me and my wife have worked so hard to get where it’s at to something negative. We don’t want that dark cloud hanging above it. I still stand by it. I didn’t say anything untrue.”

Poirier then comments on McGregor’s recent donation to the Boys & Girls Club in Louisiana.

“Conor has donated 500K to the Boys & Girls Club and that is so incredible because at the end of the day helping the community, helping people in need was the mission and goal from the jump. At the end of the day charity wins. Conor didn’t donate it to my charity but it’s not my money, it’s the peoples money. It wasn’t a slap in the face, it was a high five.”
