Mixed martial arts is one of the world's fastest growing sports, as the sport has made tremendous inroads into new markets such as Australia, Sweden and Canada over the past decade.

Betting on the UFC has proven to be very popular with sports bettors, as a thorough knowledge of the sport can give a person an advantage over the bookmakers, especially when it comes to preliminary card fights. A gambler with a thorough knowledge of preliminary card fighters can use this information to exploit some pretty wildly priced lines.

There are multiple ways that people can bet on the UFC, including outright winner, round betting and method of finish props.

Lines can move wildly shortly after a fight is announced and during the time between weigh-ins and when the fight takes place. In addition, a fighter's popularity can dramatically swing a line, as evidenced by the tremendous amount of wagering that takes place on every Conor McGregor fight. These are all things to keep in mind when you look to place your bets.


UFC 239 will take place on July 6th in Las Vegas and feature two title defences - Jon Jones attempting to defend his Light Heavyweight title against Thiago Santos, as well as Amanda Nunes attempting to defend her 135 pound title against Holly Holm.

Jon Jones has been running through the Light Heavyweight division once again since returning from his long suspension, as he has destroyed the likes of Alexander Gustafsson and Anthony Smith. Most people assume that if Jones gets past Thiago Santos at UFC 239 and Daniel Cormier defends his Heavyweight title against Stipe Miocic in August, Jones and Cormier will likely square off for a third and final time, most likely at Light Heavyweight.

For Amanda Nunes, the current Bantamweight and Featherweight champion is on top of the world right now, as she is a "champ champ" that is coming off of a destruction of Cris "Cyborg" Justino. Holly Holm is notoriously tough, however, and her team will have a great game plan in place when July 6th rolls around, to be sure.

There are a number of other intriguing fights on this main card, including a battle between Ben Askren and Jorge Masvidal that has considerable title shot implications, as well as Luke Rockhold making his debut at Light Heavyweight.
