Lucky punter wins stunning six-figure bet on UFC 300 after Max Holloway's stunning KO win over Justin Gaethje

Lucky punter wins stunning six-figure bet on UFC 300 after Max Holloway's stunning KO win over Justin Gaethje

Holloway's dramatic KO earned him the BMF crown.

One lucky punter has won himself a six-figure sum after Max Holloway's last-gasp knockout win against Justin Gaethje at UFC 300.

The Hawaiian-born fighter left it late to claim a stunning victory over Gaethje, winning the BMF title in the process.

In the final round, Holloway leapt into action landing a mean blow that left the referee with no choice but to call time on the bout.

Moe (@Yassuo on X), a popular member of gaming organisation 100 Thieves, took to social media yesterday to share the news of his superb betslip.

Placed with popular US bookmaker Stake, Holloway's victory in the dying seconds earned him a whopping $161,675 (£129,786).

Having also predicted Alex Pereira, Weili Zhang, Arman Tsarukyan and Bo Nickal's wins, his five-fold also prompted a reaction from Holloway himself.

"Brother what! Lol," posted the Featherweight champion in response to Moe's winnings.

The huge knockout, which has been viewed over 10 million times on social media already, is being described as the best in UFC history.

Joe Rogan himself has praised the bout but also insisted moments seen in Nevada are what makes the sport so great.

"When we we are sat in a room and we came up with the idea of BMF, tonight is what that belt was built for," said White.

"There should be a picture of that fight in the dictionary when you look up BMF. It was incredible.

"That's why Max Holloway is beloved.

"Tonight was a career-defining moment for a guy who's already accomplished great things - one of, if not the, best featherweight ever."

Holloway's performance also earned him $600,000 (£481,000), which isn't bad for one night's work.

But what most won't see is the effort and mental strength it takes to reach that point and perform in front of thousands of fans.

"This is what the BMF is known for, but first of all I want to change the name to Blessed Man Forever," said Holloway.

"If that's not a BMF moment I don't know what is.

"This is the type of stuff you do to etch your name in the history book."
