Just like any other sport, the fighting world is not so different and it has also unexpected results. Because of that, a bettor lost $25,000 on UFC while betting on the fight between Shana Dobson and Mariya Agapova.

The fight was on August 22nd, in Las Vegas, EUA. This victory was considered to be one of the biggest surprises this year in the UFC. Agapova was the favourite to win this combat, but ended up being defeated by her opponent.

Shana Dobson, even before entering the octagon, was already considered one of the main surprises of the card, although on the second round won against Agapova by technical knockout. For Shana victory, the odds were 8 to 1, and for the misfortune of many bettors, she won.

According to information from "Super Book Sports", a punter betted a high value of $25,000 dollars on Agapova victory. His identity wasn't revealed.

In case Agapova had been the winner of the fight, the bettor would have around $1,800 of profit, less than 10% of the bet placed. However, if he placed his bet on Dobson would have profited around $110,000.
