How to Bet on MMA

MMA betting is extremely straight forward.  Two fighters get into a cage and battle it out until one is declared the winner.  Money line betting is by far the most popular type of MMA bet, but you can also wager on the over/under of total rounds or  how the fight will end (decision, knockout, in which round, etc).  The MMA betting options are a little bit more limited than most other sports because there aren’t a great deal of statistics to wager on, but the fight winner, the round and the method of victory provide enough interesting things to bet on for most UFC fans.

Fight Winner Betting

MMA money line (fight winner) betting involves simply betting on which fighter will win the fight.  Each fighter will be given odds to win the fight by the sportsbooks and wagers on favourites will obviously payout less than wagers on underdogs.  Here is an example:

Jon Jones -325
Anthony Johnson +250

In this fight Jon Jones is the heavy favourite.  In order to win $100 betting on Jon Jones you must wager $325.  In comparison, Anthony Johnson is the underdog and a wager of $100 on Johnson would win you $250.

MMA betting is a simple as it gets.  Place a bet on which fighter you think will win, then if their arm is raised at the end of the fight your bet pays out.

MMA Prop Betting

Popular prop bets in MMA include over/unders on the number of rounds the fight lasts, which round a fighter will finish the fight in, whether or not a fighter wins by decision, TKO or submission, etc.  There are plenty of prop betting opportunities in MMA and as the sport becomes more advanced I wouldn’t be surprised if you see sportsbooks start to add even more prop betting options such as significant strikes or takedowns.  I personally love the prop betting aspect of MMA because you can really play out how you think a fight is going to go in your head and if you’re correct you can cash in.
