So if you bet 100 (for example) on Rogers you will win 454 back, plus the initial 100 you put in.

If you bet on Fedor to win his odds are 100/540 which comes to 0.19. So if you bet 100 on Fedor you only make 19 plus the 100. So you'll have 119 for betting 100.

Therefore if Rogers gets a flash KO and someone like Toxic toxic put 1 million, he'll win 4.5 million plus the 1million he originally put in.

Hope that helps and that's why a lot of us are betting on Rogers hoping for a high pay day.

But Fedor will probably win.
