The entire world saw The Notorious being handed the first TKO loss of his career in a blockbuster Conor Mcgregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 bout.
Unfortunately, we did not get to witness the return what we all expected it to be, however, some punters managed to beat the bookies in a similar fashion that Dustin did Conor. Obviously, the majority of bets came placed on the fights backed McGregor’s victory, which seemed quite logical, considering the two have already faced each other before. Unlike the original fight where Conor did his Mystic Mac stuff, The Diamond came out victorious, handing Conor McGregor his first-ever technical knockout.
While the vast majority of bettors saw their wagers coming short, there were a couple of those, who backed Dustin with some impressive sums of money. Thus, one of the William Hill
clients, have staked a cool $200,000 on Portier to win a the odds of 3.70 (27/10). Imagine the face of the punter, when they saw such a longshot coming their way, bringing a huge payout of $740,000 (£541,000).
Surprisingly, but it was not the sole instance of such a hefty wager on Poirier. There was another punter, who back the American with an incredible $100,000 wager at another leading online betting operator. Congratulations to the sharp bettors!
