Not only was UFC 200 the biggest event in UFC history, it was also one of the most bizarre. Nevermind the Jon Jones nonsense, as it was some betting numbers that made UFC 200 stand out.
Starting in the main event, which crowned a new women’s bantamweight champ, Amanda Nunes cashed as the biggest underdog of the event at +205, but it’s the way she won that’s costing some sportsbooks. Nunes was +1100 to beat Tate via submission, which she accomplished in the first round. It was the third submission win in her career and Tate’s third submission loss.
In the co-main event, which very few people had going the distance, Brock Lesnar closed as a +110 underdog and used his wrestling to defeat the more experienced Mark Hunt via decision. Most people had this one ending early, and Brock’s +600 price to win by decision reflected that.
Jose Aldo was the third underdog on the main card to win, cashing at -105 and +280 to win by decision. Dogs went 5-7 overall with Julianna Pena (+145) and Joe Lauzon (+105) winning on the undercard. Lauzon was +500 to win by T/KO, joining Jim Miller who won by T/KO at +600 as big prop bet Sportsbooks on the undercard.
