Snoop Lion shows off huge bag of marijuana after winning bet from Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s fight

The rapper, formerly known as Snoop Dogg, made a wager for fight night and was crowned victorious, winning a bag of weed. 'I'm gonna smoke 2 dat!!' he posted on his Instagram feed.

Snoop Lion is still on a high after the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Canelo Alvarez title fight Saturday.

While "Money" Mayweather proved victorious in the ring, the rapper formerly known as Snoop Dogg felt he was the real winner when he walked away with a large amount of marijuana as his prize.

"Thanks to the champ money may for winning me a pound from my Mexican buddy Lui!!" Snoop wrote along with an Instagram photo collage showing off his winnings. "U r the pound for pound best!"

The boxing champ faced off with Mexican-born Alvarez Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The fight drew a large audience and the stakes were high for some who made big bets.

While the norm would probably be putting up cash wagers, Lion pledged weed.

Without hesitation, the Long Beach, Calif., native bragged about his award. Adorned in a Captain America T-shirt, Snoop held up a huge plastic bag of greens and flexed his bicep while grinning in the snapshots.

"I'm gonna smoke 2 dat!!" he wrote and proved he had the last laugh before inviting a friend to join in the ganja festivities. "Hahahahahahahah. @bigglala where u at??"

But the hip-hopper-turned-reggae artist proved he's not always half-baked when he donated an undisclosed amount of money to the family of Tiana Rick, a 6-year-old girl who was shot and killed in Moreno Valley, Calif., on Sept. 8.

The incident was allegedly gang related and Lion took it personally when the young girl died at the hands of gun violence.

"Little 6-year-old girls are not supposed to die from a gunshot. But it keeps happening," he told the Los Angeles Times Sept. 12. "From the mass shootings in Aurora and Newtown, to gang violence in the streets and murders in our own backyards, too many tears are being shed, too many young lives are being cut short. We need to come together to change this."
