Floyd Mayweather Jr cashed in on Dustin Poirier’s win over Conor McGregor at UFC 264.

Poirier secured his second straight win over the former featherweight and lightweight champion who suffered a brutal leg injury in the closing moments of the first round on Saturday.

Mayweather, who beat McGregor in the boxing ring back in 2017, went large on Poirier to come out on top, placing a bet of $50,000 on a win for the American.

The five-weight world champion netted just over $35,700, proudly sharing his winning betting slip on Instagram.

‘@dustinpoirier, thanks for getting me paid,’ Mayweather wrote.

Poirier responded to the tweet, writing: ‘I got you champ!’

Poirier is now in line for a title shot against current lightweight champion Charles Oliveira – with a fourth fight with McGregor likely once the 32-year-old recovers from what Dana White confirmed to be a fractured lower tibia.

‘It sucks, it’s brutal and it’s not the way you want to see fights end,’ White said.

‘Dustin Poirier will fight for the title and when Conor is healed and ready to go, we’ll do the rematch.’
