$1 million dollar bet on Weidman vs. Silva being investigated
Chris Weidman knocking out Anderson Silva may have been one of the most shocking moments in the history of the UFC. Weidman was a two to one underdog and shocked the world when he knocked out Silva in the first round. An interesting report floating around the internet is that someone placed a one million dollar bet on Weidman, which is apparently being investigated:
Conspiracy theories that say that the fight between Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman had a suspicious result may have won an argument on Monday. According to the website “Middle Easy”, a bet worth $ 1 million (about U.S. $ 2.2 million) in the victory of Chris Weidman against Anderson Silva in the main event of UFC 162 was being investigated by police and Gaming Control Board, the body that regulates gambling in casinos in the city. The gambler’s identity has not been revealed, but the high value aroused suspicions of the authorities, not being an amount common in MMA fights, even throughout major events and major American casinos. The premium to be paid would be $ 3.2 million – about £ 7 million.
