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.

Betting on an MMA fight is a thrilling experience and could enhance the viewing experience.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.


Gamblers have a wide assortment of different things that they can bet on in a UFC fight, including:

1. Who will win.
2. How long the fight will last.
3. How the fight will end.
4. Which round the fight will end in.
5. Who will land the most significant strikes.

The draw of the UFC is that you really don't know what could happen on any given night, which creates the potential for some very big underdogs winning. This is obviously appealing to gamblers.


UFC 261: Jorge Masvidal vs Kamaru Usman 2

Does Jorge Masvidal deserve another title shot, immediately after losing to Kamaru Usman earlier in the year?

Whatever you think of this match-up, there is almost no doubt that the Masvidal vs Usman fight is the biggest title fight that the UFC can put together in the Middleweight division right now, which is why it is headlining UFC 261 in April.

UFC 261 will feature three title fights - Usman vs Masvidal 2, Weili vs Namajunas and Shevchenko vs Andrade.


This card is also notable as it will be the first event in over a year to have a full crowd.

The UFC has sold 15,000 tickets to this event in Florida, which is their first sold-out crowd since before the pandemic started last March.

The UFC has promised not to host anymore events in front of empty arenas anymore, as UFC 262 will likely be taking place in front of a packed crowd in Texas.


The UFC is stacking their return to full arenas in the form of three title fights.
