Floyd Mayweather is undoubtedly one of the best boxers of all time in the professional boxing world and he is also a very smart businessman who knows how to make money.
In the main event of UFC 264, Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier clashed in their third fight together. It truly had a big fight feel as many fans wondered just who would come out on top.
In the end, Dustin Poirier would win the fight in an unexpected fashion after Conor McGregor fractured his ankle at the end of the first round, declaring Poirier the winner via TKO.
Many fans and fighters alike celebrated Poirier’s win and congratulated him. This included Floyd Mayweather, who took to Twitter and thanked Poirier for helping him win over $30K in a bet.
“@dustinpoirier, thanks for getting me paid!’
Floyd Mayweather placed his bet with a Las Vegas resort and casino called Circa. It was stated that Dustin Poirier closed as a -140 betting favorite and won Mayweather $35,714.30 for a $50,000 ticket.
Dustin Poirier would respond to Mayweather as well in a positive manner. We certainly wonder who else made off with a lot of money after UFC 264.
