One Dublin punter has placed a massive bet on Conor McGregor to beat Jose Aldo in their much anticipated fight in December.

Boylesports posted the astonishing betting slip on their site this morning, showing an €18,000 bet on the Dubliner to beat the Brazilian at odds of 3/5.

 

The bet was so large, it moved the bookies odds to 4/7 for McGregor to win the bout, scheduled for Las Vegas on December 12.

The two men were due to fight in July but Aldo, the Featherweight UFC champion, pulled out with injury so McGregor faced, and beat, Chad Mendes to claim the interim title.

Now the two men will meet to decide who is the champion once and for all and if the Dubliner continues his unbeaten UFC run, the punter will pick up €28,800, a profit of €10,800.
