    I mean, is this UNDOUBTEDLY the most "bet the house" UFC fight ever?

    Literally free money for everyone. Thank you Dana (?) i guess, for giving us something back for those $70 PPV´s...

    I don't bet on fights, but WMMA is probably a gold mine. It's up there with Amanda vs Spencer and Valentina vs Eye, or pretty much most of their title defenses.

    I'm considering buying a farm just so I can throw it at the Vegas bookies.

    Probably. I really don't see what Megan brings to the table (besides her size).

    You mean Rose against Joanna? Thing is with Rose she was underestimated greatly. She made incredible improvements very quickly. I don't think we're missing anything with Megan.

    Don’t do it, unless you have a bit to throw on Megan for the fuck of it.

    I mean, what free money are you gonna get with Nunes at -1200??

    I think people underestimate Megan’s power, and how sneaky she can be. One sneaky counter shot will sends Nunes stumbling. If Megan landed it. Which she probably won’t. :(
    WAR MEGAN anyway though, I’ll be cheering for her.

    Imagine if in some crazy way Megan suddenly pull off a Carlos Condit "running man" strategy: keeping the distance, use her reach, avoid exchanges and the clinch game, and squeaks out a decision win. Would be really awesome. Still rooting for her to win.

    This fight is embarrassing

    Megan is a lamb being lead to slaughter

    First or second round KO and judging from the Embedded shows, Amanda has been preoccupied with her baby and probably not as focused on training

    I love me some Megan Anderson, but Amanda handled Germaine. I don’t see what Megan really has to offer.

    You’d be foolish not to cover your ass in a situation like this. Which would cut into your winnings anyway. Either way there isn’t a lot of money to be made without betting really really serious money.

    Yet you'd have to bet a stupid amount of money to make any meaningful profit. It's just not worth the small risk of losing. It's not worth risking 1200 dollars for 100 dollars.

    What're the odds for Amanda by finish?

    This does seem like free money, but never say never for Megan.

    If you put $10,000 on Nunes to win, you'll stand to make around $833 in profit. But it's not worth risking 10k for such a small payout.

    Nunes has not been the same since the baby. Not saying Megan wins by any means but I wouldn't bet my life on it, just sayin'

    Yeah exactly. @Volador said above that WMMA is probably a goldmine, but I disagree. A lot of these fighters are really unreliable, you just never know how they’re gonna look. And sometimes crazy shit happens. Agrapova was like -1400 or something crazy on that fight she lost. Think of some of the chicks we’ve seen, or who have been scheduled to fight recently: Ashley Yoder, Gillian Robertson, Amanda Ribas. I wouldn’t trust them with my money. Plus the lighter weight classes go to decisions more often, and who knows how the judges will see it. Like that Ketlen Viera-Yama Kunitskaya fight.
    I’m feeling upset in the air too. I really hope Megan can pull it off.

    I put a small bet on Megan just because years of watching mma have taught me that there really isn't such thing as an over +700 underdog, so if you get those odds, it's worth throwing out a flyer bet. I bet $25 which is an amount I don't care about losing, but it pays off $200, which could cover a night of great partying or two nights of ok partying.

    Also, Megan looks like a highly motivated fighter making regular developments, while Nunes seems to be hitting the bored-with-it phase of being a long-standing champion, so I feel the recipe is right for an upset.
