Instagram king Dan Bilzerian apparently lost a fortune after betting against Conor McGregor in UFC 246.
McGregor knocked out Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in just 40 seconds, but Bilzerian said he would bet hard for the Irish to lose.
Cerrone was a helpless man and Bilzerian, a social media playboy with almost 30 million followers, posted a photo of himself before the fight with a bank full of money.
He captioned the post: “He put a pocket change on @cowboycerrone, who do they have?”
It was a mountain of money that fans estimated should have exceeded $ 1 million.
While there is no evidence that Bilzerian has really bet the money, he commented after McGregor’s quick victory: “Haha s —, @thenotoriousmma still backs up, a lot of respect.”
Bilzerian, 39, is a poker player who became an Internet phenomenon. His personal wealth is estimated at $ US200 million and he claims to have won more than $ US10 million in a single poker session.
