Floyd Mayweather, who has fought and beaten Conor McGregor, had his money on Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 Saturday night.

After the lightweight fight between McGregor and Poirier in Las Vegas was ruled in Poirier’s favor due to McGregor’s gruesome leg injury, Mayweather posted a photo of the $50,000 bet he placed on Poirier.

The bet will pay off $35,714.30 for Mayweather.

“@dustinpoirier, thanks for getting me paid!” Mayweather wrote on Twitter.

Poirier responded to Mayweather on Twitter: “I got you champ!”

The 32-year-old, who was the slight favorite over McGregor entering the fight, was declared the winner via doctor stoppage and given the technical knockout, after it was clear McGregor couldn’t continue. The Irishman rolled his ankle and ultimately snapped his tibia, which he underwent surgery to repair Sunday morning.

Mayweather handedly defeated McGregor in August 2017, which reportedly earned him over $300 million.
