Before Conor McGregor lost to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 this past weekend, combat sports’ pound-for-pound best troll Jake Paul had a $100,000 chain crafted to mock the Irishman. That chain included a figurine of McGregor inspired by how he looked after the first time Poirier beat him in January.
After Poirier beat McGregor for the second time, Paul offered to send ‘The Diamond’ the expensive trinket. Poirier, who has had to deal with death threats from McGregor before and after their third contest, gladly accepted.
Yesterday Paul revealed that he was able to hit up a FedEx and get the garish piece out to Poirier. Along with the item Paul included a note to the recipient, which he shared online.
congrats for your much earned victory. I love what you are doing with your Good Fight Foundation! You deserve this chain more than me! Good always beats evil! Keep winning!
- Love Jake
P.S Tell Jolie I said hi - she’s a badass!
Like her husband, Jolie Poirier also had to put up with McGregor’s despicable behaviour both before and after UFC 264. After hearing threats against her husband (and herself while McGregor was prone on the canvas), she responded by giving ‘Notorious’ a one finger salute.
It seems very likely that the Poiriers will now auction off the ‘Sleepy McGregor’ chain for charity.
