An ultra-confident wager on Daniel Cormier really shook up the betting lines for UFC 252.
The lines for Stipe Miocic vs. Cormier 3 started as a pick'em before slightly shifting in favor of the challenger, per BetMGM via Yahoo! Sports. One big spender stumbled upon the odds and found the numbers far too appetizing to pass upon. The individual bet $10,000 on a Cormier victory at -115. That means he will cash in $18,696 should the former champ-champ prevail.
Cormier is sitting at approximately 56 percent of overall bets, as of Thursday evening, and nearly 79 percent of the total money. That means Cormier is picked to win by more than half of bettors, but it also means the big wagers are on D.C.
UFC 252 takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, August 15. Miocic vs. Cormier 3 headlines a card that also boasts appearances by Sean O'Malley, Junior dos Santos and Jim Miller.
