Three fights, topped by Kelvin Gastelum, netted one person quite the payday.
Every UFC pay-per-view event, it seems like there are at least one or two crazy bets that leave people scratching their heads on why they’d take such a risk, cheering for them for their bet to pay off or hoping that it’s a bet gone awry.
To its credit, the UFC has been very open at discussing fight odds and bets and often showcases such interesting bets. And in this case, one big bet for UFC 258, which rode on Kelvin Gastelum ended up paying off.
Kelvin Gastelum win by decision at UFC 258 secures $32K parlay for one bettor
DraftKings, the official betting partner of the UFC, tweeted out that one person placed a $2,500 three-fight parlay, and that all that was remaining for the bet to be successful was a win by decision for Kelvin Gastelum over Ian Heinisch.
Gastelum would use his wrestling and grappling advantages, scoring a personal best in takedowns, to score the needed unanimous decision win over Heinisch. It not only got the bettor the win, but it also snapped a three-fight losing streak for Gastelum.
If that certain lucky bettor wants to share some of that dough, that’d be great…pretty please?
