Holm agent wins six-figure sum on Rousey upset


Lenny Fresquez has worked with Holly Holm for more than a decade, and his faith in the fighter paid off in a big way on Saturday.

Holm's agent and promoter told MMA Fighting he won "six figures" betting on Holm to beat Ronda Rousey at UFC 193 in Melbourne.

Heading into the weekend, Holm was priced at 10-1 and, though that had dropped closer to 8-1 by fight time, Fresquez was happy to capitalise.

"We made a lot of money," he said. "Thank you, Vegas, for putting the odds up like that."

Pressed on how much he pocketed on the upset, he finally acknowledged: "We got into the six figures, I'll put it that way."
