    I have heard of high odds such as 4 to 1, or even 10 to 1 in fedor fights. But never have I heard of 20-1 odds, that is ridiculous. What are some other fights that come to mind that have had 20-1 odds? or what is the second most?

    I think 20-1 is the record for a zuffa fight... can't think of any other fight. Even Jones/Anderson/GSP fights rarely go over 10-1 and they tend to be the biggest locks.

    Mendes vs Meza
    Anderson vs Bonnar
    Any fight on AXS TV fights.

    Mendes comes close at -1650 but not quite big a favorite as Cormier. Probably second biggest favorite in the history of zuffa ( ? ).

    Anderson was -1350 vs Bonnar.

    Wow I can't believe Dion Staring fought Akira Corassani in 2007. Akira is a 145er

    There are many fights every year that exceed 20 to 1 odds. Froch's recent fight against Yusaf Mack (who isn't a terrible fighter, by any means) exceeded 20 to 1 on some books.

    Alright I guess I was mistaken, I thought you were complaining that I chose a Pride fight.

    Welcome to the UFC Discussion forum.

    What was Couture at versus Toney?

    I just wanted to point out we should separate Zuffa and the rest. You can pick any fight you like.

    Let's be honest Zuffa does a good job of avoiding ZOMG mismatches. That's why I think it would be interesting to know the zuffa record & the record of all time.

    Tyson/Douglas seems to be the winner so far, anyone got a bigger mismatch?

    Edit: It seems like Cormier is the biggest favorite in Zuffa history

    Note: The funny thing is, Douglas pulled off the upset.

    You mean the UFC Discussion for discussing UFC, WEC, and Pride events?

    He wasn't that big of a favorite actually, lowest point was almost -700. Thought it was -1000. I guess people had higher hopes for Toney than I remembered, lol.
