In recent days there’s been speculation about whether Conor McGregor could end up boxing Manny Pacquiao next, as the star recently claimed was going to happen. But now the former UFC champ has asked Dustin Poirier is he’s willing to fight again in a charity match, and “The Diamond” says he’s down.

Recently McGregor and Poirier had the following exchange on Twitter.

Hey bro! You want to do an MMA charity fight? Zero to do with the ufc. I will donate half a mill towards your charity for it. Sell it on ppv or work a tv deal and we work out other charities that are close to my heart also. I am engaged in many.
Strictly a charity “exhibition”

December 12th in the Point depot, Ireland. No weigh ins.
Open weight, unified rules.
I will arrange all travel fare for you and family.
McGregor Sports and Entertainment MMA, in association with The Good Fight Foundation.
Charity Mixed Martial Arts!

To which Poirier responded by saying:

I’m in! Lets do it! A lot of people will benefit from this @TheGoodFightFDN

McGregor then followed up with this tweet:

Excellent! We shall take it offline and progress the process from here. Good man Dustin! I respect your philanthropic efforts greatly, as well as how you conducted yourself post our first fight. You have my respect!

Poirier and McGregor fought at UFC 178 in 2014, and the latter won the fight via first-round stoppage.
