Fedor Emelianenko Strikeforce M1 Global

So much for the old saying, “that’s why they fight the fights” huh? Our friends over at Bodog have just posted the odds for the main event at the M-1 Global supported Yarennoka! card on New Year’s Eve and after extensive research online, I haven’t been able to find a bigger odds favorite in Mixed Martial Arts.

Fedor Emelianenko (26-1-0) is a 1700-to-1 favorite, which means that you would have to bet $1,700 just to win $100!

On the flip side, if you bet $100 on Hong Man Choi (1-0-0) you’d win a whopping $850.

The biggest upset in MMA odds history took place when Matt Serra defeated Georges St. Pierre for the UFC welterweight title back at UFC 69: Shootout.

The Serra line was +700.

If anybody has any other odds or huge upsets that should be mentioned, let us know.
