Poirier and The Good Fight Group look to build playground for disabled children
At UFC 236 we saw two interim champions crowned, one of them being Louisiana’s Dustin Poirier.
Poirier put on an incredible performance against featherweight champion, Max Holloway. Poirier’s resume also shows wins over former world champions like Eddie Alvarez and Anthony Pettis. With the win in Atlanta, Georgia, “The Diamond” earned himself a future unification bout with the current champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov.
After his win, the spotlight is rightly put on Dustin’s fighting, but it’s important to highlight Poirier’s charity organization and the good he does outside of the Octagon too. Poirier has a non-profit organization based in his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana. He formed the charity in April of last year, and while most charities target one specific cause The Good Fight Group does not.
Dustin auctions of all his fight gear and the money goes to his charity, which later goes to causes that he feels are good ones. Dustin will be auctioning off his gear from his fight with Max, with the money going to a new cause this time around.
“There was a kid named Aaron Hill who had a very rare brain disease called ALD, and his dream and wish was his school would have a playground the people in wheelchairs and people in his class can go have time and play on,” Poirier told MMA Junkie. “He passed away before his dream became a reality. What me and the Good Fight Foundation are going to do is raise money through TheGoodFightGroup.com and auction off all my gear from this fight and get a playground built.”
It can not be stated enough that while Dustin is a world champion and a fantastic fighter, he also has a heart of gold. If you wish to donate to his charity The Good Fight Group and help get the playground built, you can donate by visiting TheGoodFightGroup.com.

I know things others do NOT.Those 6 Elbow strikes on the left side of Dustin’s head have very well Caused an Internal Injury-Through Meditation in my Closet I have been SHOWN that Dustin Needs a Brain Scan to Make sure he Does Not have Bleeding in His Brain.
I have posted on utube but I depend on No one to Understand How Vicious an Elbow strike is.
Even a small bleeding it will be Deadly. The longer you wait the more chance of His Death—Be not Fooled by anyone saying No-that is not the Case.
Go now immediately and TELL those whom are Close to this Man..Let him look into a Mirror and have him say to Himself while looking into His own Eyes. Let him say “No I have No problem” and SEE what His sub-conscious says to himself.
Let His Soul answer for himself and he may admit to himself YES, these strikes WERE powerful enough for that Type of INJURY—beware of being complacent..
