The headline UFC205 fight between Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez is set be biggest fight night yet in terms of most bet on UFC fight in history.
[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he online bitcoin sportsbook for bitcoin players, Sportsbet.io, has confirmed that the UFC 205 fight has already broken records as the most wagered upon fight night of all time.
Saturday’s headline fight between Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez, which takes place in New York, has already seen more bets than Sportsbet’s previous high for most bet on UFC card, McGregor’s previous fight at UFC 202.
Sportsbet confirmed that the majority of bets are for McGregor, the current short favourite to win at 1.60, with 75 percent of the money bet so far placed on the Irish fighter.
Commenting on the record high of money placed on any UFC event, Sportsbet.io spokesperson Joe Jordan, said: “Conor McGregor is possibly the biggest draw in all sport, let alone UFC, and punters have rushed to back the trash-talking fighter.
“Despite a one-sided fight expected, we’ve also taken quite a few big bets on Eddie Alvarez – so don’t count against McGregor not getting it all his own way.
“Either way, we’re expecting a great evening of action, and plenty more bets to flood in before, and during the night.”
