One Irish punter has placed a huge amount of money on Conor McGregor to beat Jose Aldo

One Irish punter is so confident that Conor McGregor will beat Jose Aldo next month that he let his money, and plenty of it, do the talking.

A huge €11,000k has been placed as a single bet with Boylesports on McGregor to take the UFC featherweight world title belt off the Brazilian when they meet in Las Vegas on June 11.

It is the second five-figure sum to be gambled on a McGregor win with the bookie following a flutter last April at 21/20.

The five figure bet was placed in one of BoyleSports Dublin city centre shops this morning and if McGregor wins the fight they will make a €8,000 profit.

Following his injury scare, Jose Aldo has been eased out to Evens from 5/6.

Liam Glynn, BoyleSports’ spokesperson said: “Conor McGregor is all the rage to win his upcoming UFC match against Jose Aldo and if he manages to win, BoyleSports will be hit with a six figure loss.

“One punter certainly has faith in The Notorious having placed €11K on the UFC fighter on Friday morning and our traders are expecting the current 8/11 available on McGregor to defeat Jose Aldo to dry up sooner rather than later judging by the latest surge of support.”
