Dan Bilzerian Lost Loads Of Cash On Donald Cerrone After Conor McGregor's UFC 246 Win

Dan Bilzerian Lost Loads Of Cash On Donald Cerrone After Conor McGregor's UFC 246 Win

Dan Bilzerian looks to have lost an absolute tonne of money last night on the fight between Conor McGregor and Donald 'Cowboy' Cerrone.

Bilzerian, who is a social media star and professional rich guy, posted a photograph of himself standing next to a huge pile of cash while he was holding a bag of pennies.

He wrote: "Puttin some pocket change on @cowboycerrone who y'all got?"

As we now know, 'The Notorious' McGregor managed to end the fight in less than a minute with a selection of heavy blows with various parts of his frame.

That means that Bilzerian's unspecified amount of cash has now gone into the hands of the bookmakers, which is hardly a happy ending either, but still.

While we can't be sure exactly how much he lost in total, a few internet sleuths have been at work to try to ascertain the amount by looking at the piles themselves.

One eagle eyed observer reckons that there's just over $1m (£770k) there on the table.

They shared their working out on Twitter, writing: "Okay the total for the money is: 6 layers, $2000 each set. Approx 20 sets down the line. Times 4 rows.

"Plus adding the extra random stacks with the two random 5k stacks and 10k stack totals to be $1,024,000."

If you're a fan of Bilzerian, you'll be pleased to know that he doesn't seem too put out about the loss of his 'pocket change'.

After McGregor wrapped the fight up in less than a minute, Bilzerian tweeted: "Haha s***".

Well, it was only a few bits of pocket change anyway, right?

As for the two fighters, McGregor successfully stepped up to the welterweight division to win his first fight since losing by submission to Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Speaking after the fight, he said: "I'm so happy. Who's going up and down divisions and stopping people like that?! The UFC can strip fighters [belts] and give other fighters make-believe belts in order to replicate my champ-champ status but they can't give knockout victories across multiple weight divisions.

"Etch my name in history one more time. For the Irish people, for my ma back home... I love ya to bits, I'm coming home with the win!!

"I made history here tonight, I set another record. I'm the first fighter in UFC history to secure knockouts at featherweight, lightweight and now welterweight so I'm very proud of that.

"Donald holds the record for the most head-kick knockouts so I'm so happy to get him there with a head-kick myself."

Betcha Dan Bilzerian's not so happy about it.

Oh dear, oh dear.
