UFC 205 reportedly set an all time pay-per-view and live gate record. Conor McGregor made history by being the first UFC fighter to hold two world titles in two weight divisions.

Prop bettors potentially made an extremely nice haul for wagering any of the below betting options.

Not Alvarez inside distance paid -222.
In the co-main event of the evening, the biggest score of all was generated by gamblers who banked on their being a draw in the Tyron Woodley vs. Stephen Thompson match. Bruce Buffer for a moment caused a few trigger happy online sportsbooks to misgrade the bet as he erroneously declared that Woodley was the winner by way of split decision after reading the scores of draw, draw, and Woodley, simultaneously prompting outrage among bettors at SBR Forum.
"Isn't that a majority draw?" asked poster The_Locksmith.
"Am I hearing things, or did he call out two 47-47s? That would be a majority draw, not a split decision," pointed out jizay.
"Took 3 minutes for anyone to realize Buffer screwed it up? Plus they pulled Buffer out of the ring before he announced it, seemingly to make sure he knew what to say," commented yisman.
The announcement was quickly corrected and bettors who wagered received a +6500 payday for betting on a draw.
