Someone put $1 million on Amanda Nunes at -600 to beat Felicia Spencer

Remember before Ronda Rousey when Dana White said there was no interest in women’s MMA? That was a long time ago.

UFC Fight 250 Nunes v Spencer: Weigh-Ins Amanda Nunes of Brazil poses on the scale during the UFC 250 weigh-in at UFC APEX on June 05, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Amanda Nunes is a big favorite to defeat Felicia Spencer in the main event of UFC 250 tonight. But for one big bettor, there will be a bit more of a sweat than usual.

Someone has put $1 million on UFC featherweight championship fight on the favored Nunes.

Nunes is the GOAT of women’s MMA. A two-division champion, winner of 10 fights in a row, and undoubtedly one of the most dominant athletes in any sport in the world.

But this is still MMA, and it’s a heckuva risk being taken. What makes the sport compelling is that there’s always a puncher’s chance for an underdog.

It’s also apparently not just the biggest bet taken in women’s MMA, but the biggest on ANY UFC fight ever.

It’s all relative and it matters what you’re worth, but that’s a lot of scratch. But at DraftKings, the bettor would have gotten a better price: Right now Nunes is -590 to defeat Spencer this evening.
