A gambler with a thorough knowledge of preliminary card fighters can use this information to exploit some pretty wildly priced lines.

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.

1. Who will win.
2. How long the fight will last.
3. How the fight will end.

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 247: Jones vs Reyes

UFC 247 will take place at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on February 8th, and will feature two title fights - Jon Jones vs Dominick Reyes and Valentina Shevchenko vs Katlyn Chookagian.

Both of these title fights are not expected to be competitive, with Jon Jones and Valentina Shevchenko widely expected to retain their titles.

Jon Jones, however, may be the most vulnerable of the two, as he is coming off of a very close bout against Thiago Santos in his last fight. With that being said, Jones always seems to find a way to win his fights, and most are expecting that he will win against on February 8th.

Valentina Shevchenko is essentially her own island in the Women's Flyweight division, as she is considered to be far above the rest of her opponents in the division. Shevchenko is expected to dominant, as the odds for her fight are even more lopsided than the Jones/Reyes fight.
