UFC’s popularity has exploded in recent years as a unique mix of fighting styles has led to fight fans flocking to see their favourite MMA stars in action.
And at Odds Manager we’ll always bring you the very best UFC news, views and odds.
Major Fights in 2020
Abu Dhabi may seem like an unlikely spot to hold a UFC event.
But on October 24th, there’ll be UFC in the UAE, as Khabib Nurmagomedov and Justin Gaethje collide in a lightweight title unification bout.
Nurmagomedov would not only get you a great score in Scrabble, but he is unbeaten in 28 fights, a record in MMA.
And “The Eagle” has soared to become the most watchable star in the UFC.
His opponent is no slouch though, and this should be a cracker.
UFC Odds – What to Bet on
Whether it’s a kick to the face or a twist of the arm, Mixed Martial Arts allows for more ways to win than boxing.
And while that means more pain for the fighters, it also leads to more opportunities for punters!
Outright Winner Odds
With so many different ways to win in the UFC, the easiest option is a straight-up bet on who will have their hands raised in victory.
You’ll need to bet big if you fancy the favourite, but small stakes on the outsider can pay big dividends in a sport where anything can happen!
Method of Victory
Betting on the method of victory is a great way to increase your odds.
If you think the fight won’t go the distance, you can back your fighter to win by KO, TKO or submission.
And just like boxing, you can back the bout to go the distance.
There is definitely money to be made, betting on which round your fighter will win in.
Because a big bonus when it comes to round betting is that a UFC fight only has five of them!
The stats tell us that the most heavily-backed fighter wins around two-thirds of UFC fights, so it’s not unlikely to see a clean sweep of favourites on a UFC card.
So an Acca is a good way for favourite backers to boost their odds.
And with many betting sites offering Acca Insurance, you’ll even be protected against an underdog victory.
