  • Every one saying that Connor dissed Dustin, and "fook your foundation" and that Dustin is just playing the mind games by thanking Connor for the donation, you're a fool, Connor and Dustin are like legit homies. They not only have mad respect for each other, but there's absolutely zero beef or anything personal between them. Just unsettled business, and it's just that, business, nothing else. Anything leading up to the fight that may or may not happen or be said is straight up acting man, all caaaappppp for the money and for the views. ... These dudes love each other. Probably more than most.
