Bettor wagers $37,000 on Kay Hansen tat UFC Vegas 4.

As sports slowly continue to return, so does sports betting. Many sports bettors have been turning their attention to the UFC lately in an attempt to get their fix, with some seven-figure bets being placed on fighters to win their fight. Just three weeks ago we saw a bettor place $1 million on Amanda Nunes to retain her featherweight title against challenger Felicia Spencer. Nunes was victorious and the bettor won a return of $166.6k.

This time around another bettor has laid down significant money, wagering $37k on UFC newcomer Kay Hansen to defeat Jinh Yu Frey. The bet of $37k could return $20k if Hansen comes away victorious.

This bet, albeit a much smaller amount, is still quite the gamble. Hansen is only a -180 favorite and you never really know how a fighter will fare on their UFC debut.

Kay Hansen vs. Jinh You Frey live at UFC Vegas 4.

Both Hansen (6-3)  and Frey (9-4) are making their UFC debuts on Saturday, with Frey holding the slight advantage in experience. Frey is the former Invicta FC atomweight champion, while Hansen went 5-3 in Invicta and is currently on a two-fight winning streak. Hansen has also added two post-fight bonuses in her last four bouts, one for Fight of the Night and the other for Performance of the Night.

At just 20 years of age, Hansen is the youngest female fighter on the UFC roster. Coming in at 35 years old, Frey is no stepping stone and certainly not one to ever count out of a fight. One of the main talking points of Saturday’s fight will be the weight. Hansen is coming down from 125 pounds to meet Frey at the strawweight limit of 115 pounds, while Frey has competed strictly at atomweight in the past.

Catch Hansen vs. Fry on the prelims of UFC Vegas 4 to see if the bet was indeed a smart one or not.
