Rumor: $1,000,000 bet on Weidman under investigation
 
http://mmashare.mmavista.com/serious...on-t67287.html

[IMG]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. The favorite on the betting exchanges was Anderson Silva, who had never lost in 16 fights in the UFC, and held many records of the event. Already Weidman, even paying only 3.2 times more than the champion for every dollar wagered, was unbeaten in his career, having won all nine fights as a professional had done. For determination of Justice, the research runs a secret court, and the details can not be disclosed publicly.[/IMG]

It was Marsellus Wallace

Well, since the general public was on the huge Silva hype train you could get a good odds betting Weidman. This since Weidman was relatively unknown for the broad masses. Also take into account that many of the top UFC fighters (GSP, Gustafsson etc) predicted Weidman winning.

So probably someone with a lot of money started believing what the fighters said. Probably the guy who made that bet had seen Weidman on training sessions as well.

I say, congrats on a great and huge bet win!

:laugh: can you imagine if it turned out to be Dana, one of the Fertittas or Joe Silva... Shit would fly off the rails.
