Khabib Nurmagomedov Auctions Off Dustin Poirier’s T-Shirt For Staggering Sum

Following his victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 recent, Khabib Nurmagomedov vowed to auction off his opponent’s walk-in t-shirt and donate the proceed’s to Poirier’s ‘Good Fight Foundation’ charity.

It was a heart-warming gesture of sportsmanship and it’s also resulted in a staggering sum of money being received as it’s now been revealed the auction generated $100,000.

As if that’s not enough, Dana White had also stated post-fight that he would match the donation, and Poirier has confirmed that is going ahead despite the huge amount of money involved.

Just got off the phone with @danawhite he is matching Khabib’s donation to the @TheGoodFightFDN !!! I’m so grateful for the love and support! Thank you all!!!” Poirier wrote on twitter.

The $200,000 will now go towards building water wells at an orphanage and school in Uganda after their previous water supplies had previously been ruined by a flood.

Poirier had been attempting to raise $25,000 for the project and had already exceeded his target with $33,000 in donations prior to the auction.

“It’s great because it’s going to help a lot of people,” Poirier told MMA Junkie. “I’m proud of that. I appreciate them helping out the charity. It’s been growing and I’m very grateful for that.”
