Floyd Mayweather is a happy man this morning after watching Conor McGregor lose to Dustin Poirier at UFC 264 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Irishman suffered another defeat after appearing to break his ankle after falling awkwardly in the Octagon during the first-round.
Poirier was dominating the early proceedings and was likely to come out on top anyway, according to the pundits.
And that was good news for Mayweather, who had placed a $50,000 bet on the American to come out on top.
Taking to social media after the fight, the boxing icon said: "@dustinpoirier, thanks for getting me paid!"
Mayweather and McGregor have history after clashing in an exhibition boxing match back in 2017.
The former came out on top that night, despite McGregor's surprise resilience in the ring.
The 32-year-old UFC legend is now at a crossroads in his career, with many fans claiming he isn't good enough to fight at the top level anymore.
McGregor was visibly angry after the abrupt and unfortunate ending to the clash with Poirier.
And he continued his war of words with his opponent as he lay on the floor of the Octagon.
“I was boxing the bleeding head off him, kicking the bleeding leg off him," he screamed after the fight.
"THIS IS NOT OVER. If I have to take him outside…
"Your wife is in my DMs, hey baby, hit me back up I'll chat to you later on, I'll be at the after party; The Wynn night club."
UFC chief Dana White has already confirmed a rematch will take place once McGregor's ankle heals.
The Notorious will go in for surgery tomorrow to try and fix the problem.
As for Poirier, he is set to challenge Brazilian Charles Oliveira for the UFC lightweight crown.
The South American fighter was cageside during the fight, along with YouTuber and McGregor nemesis Jake Paul.
