One big spender lost a lot of money after making a mathematically bone-headed bet on Mariya Agapova vs. Shana Dobson at UFC Fight Night: Munhoz vs. Edgar.
Dobson picked up a second-round TKO victory over Agapova on the event's main card. A bettor placed an enormous $25,000 wager on Agapova and promptly lost it all. What makes the situation even more insane, however, is the patron would have only netted $1,775 on an Agapova victory.
