This is a really great thread, struggling to think of one straight away, but I’m sure there are a good fucked tucked away in the old grey matter.

Rolles Gracie was something like a -900 favorite against Joey Beltran and lost. Same with Mariya Agapova and Shana Dobson.

Two upsets that hurt me even more because money was on the line was a Michael Kuiper and Noad Lahat were -400 to -450 favorites and both got finished (the latter by Godofredo Pepey of all people). :grumpy:

I know it seems crazy now. But at that time Gomi was up there with Fedor in the pound for pound rankings. He only had three loses(Penn, Hansen, Aurelio).

So for Diaz( a ufc reject who lost to Riggs) to come in and get a win. Was some wild shit. Even sadder in retrospect because i don't think Gomi was ever really the same afterwards.

When Gina lost to Cyborg I was depressed for 2 weeks, if that's what you mean by "upset" ?

Especially via KO. Nobody expected that.

Danny Lafever coming out of the crowd the day of his fight with a 15-1 Benji Radach just to KO Benji stiff might be the biggest upset ever



Officially 8-2 in sig bets. *pats back*
