Punter predicts ENTIRE UFC 296 card and stings Ladbrokes with 926/1 picks to land 'best MMA bet of the year' | The Sun

A plucky UFC punter managed to sensationally pick the winner of EVERY fight from Vegas on Saturday – bagging a tasty pre-Christmas sum along the way and title of 'best MMA bet of the year'.

Sin City hosted UFC 296, which ended with the tight contest between Leon Edwards and Colby Covington.

Bookmakers Ladbrokes have revealed one anonymous customer correctly predicted the outcome of no less than TWELVE fights on the card at incredible odds of 926/1.

Of the 12 contested, eight were won by odds-on fighters and won with some degree of ease.

Among them saw Cody Garbrandt beat Brian Kelleher (1/2), Paddy Pimblett overcoming Tony Ferguson (1/3) and Shavkat Rakhmonov beating Stephen Thompson (2/13).

The bigger prices in the accumulator saw Alonzo Menifield to beat Dustin Jacoby (21/10) and Josh Emmett getting the better of Bryce Mitchell (7/4).
