Mayweather posted on Instagram he had won the bet he placed at Circa on the fight. He put $ 50,000 on Poirier to defeat McGregor and in the end, that’s exactly what was ruled. Mayweather won just over $ 35,700 on the fight.
“@dustinpoirier, thanks for getting me paid,” Mayweather wrote.
Poirier was a -140 favorite to win the fight.
McGregor lost via a doctor-stoppage technical knockout on Saturday night against Poirier.
Poirier was able to control McGregor on the mat through much of the first round. McGregor had tried to put Poirier in the guillotine submission hold, but Poirier was able to get out of it and outmatch McGregor.
