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.
