The fights might not be in Las Vegas this time, but the Sin City still delivers the bettors.

A bettor walked up to the counter at the Bellagio on Saturday and plunked down $600,000 to make his bets on UFC 251.

His most risky bets are $100,000 each on the underdogs in the co-main and main event — Jorge Masvidal (+200) and Max Holloway (+175). A bold bet considering both their opponents Kamaru Usman and Alexander Volkanovski have two career losses combined. Winning both bets would net $375,000.

But he’s not all in on Masvidal and Holloway. He put two more $100,000 bets that those two fights won’t go the distance. For the co-main that bet would net $175,000, while Usman-Masvidal failing to go the distance would win $57,142.

For his final $100,000 bets, he took two favorites — Petr Yan (-230) to beat Jose Aldo, which would net $43,478, and strawweight Rose Namajunas (-210) to beat Jessica Andrade. That would net $47,619.
