Conor McGregor Quarreled With Dustin Poirier Over a $500K Donation

The UFC lightweight fighters Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor exchanged blows on social media. There are just three months left until July 10, when their scheduled trilogy at UFC 264 is about to take place. In fact, the very reason for the back-and-forth was what brought the fighters together at the beginning of the year: a donation to Poirier’s charity from his opponent – McGregor himself.

Conor McGregor Wanted to Donate Half a Million to Poirier’s The Good Fight Foundation

He wanted to donate the money for the construction of a gym for disadvantaged youth in Lafayette, Louisiana – the hometown of Poirier. Recently, Poirier accused McGregor of neglecting his promise. Apparently, he was ignoring any attempts to be reached by Poirier’s charity after the fight, which Poirier won with a second-round TKO.

Poirier said on social media that Conor McGregor’s prediction for a knockout turned out to be a fun one, referencing the way the fight ended. Then, Poirier added that McGregor had also predicted a donation to his foundation, but he and his team had stopped responding after the fight. So far, McGregor has been praised for his philanthropic efforts in Ireland, so he quickly wrote a response to Poirier. Apparently, the Irish fighter had not made a donation yet because he was waiting to receive details on how the money would be spent.

Los Angeles Rams Launches “Modern Throwback” Uniform for the Super Bowl 2021

Los Angeles Rams have announced another team uniform look for the Super Bowl 2021 season, with nostalgic elements for the fans. The uniform, fondly called the “modern throwback”, incorporates elements from more than two-decade-long histories of the team’s uniform.

The Design of the Uniform

The design of Los Angeles Rams’ new uniform features elements from the team’s past uniforms, starting from the mid-1970s to 2000, ranging from Super Bowl XIV to Super Bowl XXXIV. The uniform will contain a white-colored jersey imprinted with solid blue-colored numbers, completed with blue-colored shoulder-ram horns and yellow-colored capped sleeves. The jersey will be further decorated with the logo of the Rams on the neck part, and the word mark patch of the team on the frontal left side. Pairing with the jersey, the helmet design will be the same as last season, as per the NFL’s one-helmet rule. Though the rule was annulled this off-season, the withdrawal won’t be in effect until 2022. The Rams will be seen in this new uniform in three regular games of the 2021 season- their opening game against the ‘Chicago Bears’, Week 9 game against the ‘Tennessee Titans’ and Week 10 game against the ‘San Francisco 49ers’.

Vision behind the Venture

In May, last year, the Rams boasted their rebrand uniform featuring three new colors, a brand new logo, and a new helmet with a blue-colored face mask. They named the three new colors “Rams Royal”, “Bone” and “Sol.” The uniform redesign launch was planned for the day of 2020 opening at the SoFi Stadium. According to Kevin Demoff, the Rams Chief Operating Officer, the new design is a unique balancing act, matching between the amazing style and modern building of the team, and the loving tradition of a decades-long iconic history of the team.
