Dan Bilzerian Lost A Ridiculous Amount Of Money From Bet On Conor McGregor vs Donald Cerrone

Poker player Dan Bilzerian's backing of Donald Cerrone in the UFC 246 main event against Conor McGregor cost him a crazy amount of money.

Prior to the fight, the 39-year old was snapped putting some serious dollar on his fellow American for the bout at the T-Mobile Arena.

He told fans he was putting some "pocket change" on 'Cowboy' picking up the win but unfortunately for him the UFC veteran was dealt with by McGregor in the first round.

It is believed that he lost over £1 million on the main event bout.

'The Notorious' didn't even have a single mark on him, while his slicked-back hair didn't even move out of place whatsoever on the way to a TKO win.

It didn't seem as though the wager loss affected Bilzerian too much, however, judging by his tweet after the fight.

Unlike most of us when our weekend accumulators don't come in yet again, he'll probably make that money back in next to no time.

McGregor, meanwhile, estimated he would earn $80 million (£60 million) overall from his return fight and believes he will be a billionaire by the time he turns 35.
