Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor famously battled back in 2017, with Mayweather coming out on top. Since then, McGregor has been clamoring for a rematch, and his UFC career has been marked by a series of catastrophic losses.

McGregor’s first fight return ended in a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018, and he has since lost back-to-back fights to Dustin Poirier in 2021.

The most recent of these clashes occurred on Saturday, when McGregor’s leg was snapped, resulting in a really horrible scene.

As one might expect, Mayweather was overjoyed by McGregor’s defeat, and he expressed his gratitude for Dustin Poirier on Instagram on Sunday.

Mayweather put a $50,000 wager on the fight, as seen in the Instagram image below. He bet on Poirier, who was a -140 favorite at the time. Mayweather ended up with a $85,000 ticket as a result of Poirier’s stunning win, which means the renowned boxer got a handsome $35,000 profit.

Mayweather has been known to partake in some form of sports betting in the past, and this was no different. After all, Poirier appeared to be a no-brainer after his January battle with McGregor.

The Irish-born fighter will now have to undergo extensive rehabilitation in order to make a comeback in 2022. When he’s ready to fight again, it’ll be interesting to see who his opponent is.
