Mixed Martial Arts

Overview

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) cage fighting has many different sanctioned leagues. As of 2018, the combat sport of MMA had 41 different leagues that adhere to mixed martial arts rules and regulations. Some of these leagues have both men and women fighting in their league, while others were strictly for either men or women only. While there are many different MMA leagues, four stand out the most in the world of mixed martial arts combat sports.

Ultimate Fighting Championship

The most well-known mixed martial arts league in the United States is the UFC. Established in 1993 by Art Davie and martial artist Rorion Gracie, the UFC has been the standard that all other MMA combat sports follow. The UFC would be a men’s only MMA combat sport until 2012 when Ronda Rousey would sign with the UFC and become its first women’s champion.

The UFC is expansive, with its reach being worldwide, from weekly TV shows, magazines, and even video games. The UFC has between 38-42 events throughout each year, with the major events being numbered. The UFC has events throughout the calendar year for fans to enjoy and title belt matches where champions defend their weight class title.
Bellator Mixed Martial Arts
Another popular MMA league is Bellator MMA cage fighting. Since 2008, Bellator has produced some of the best combat fighters in the cage with fighters like Cris Cyborg, Ryan Bader, and Michael Chandler. Bellator MMA is also the largest combat sports promotion globally and ranks second in the United States behind the UFC.

Bellator MMA has between 18-27 events each year, with some months having multiple Bellator MMA events. They also have international events like Bellator Paris, Bellator London, Bellator Milian, and Bellator Dublin. These events have made Bellator the largest MMA combat sports promotion in the world. Bellator MMA title belts are usually defended during their PPV events.

Professional Fighters League

The Professional Fighters League is also another MMA combat fighting league and was founded in 2018. The PFL is the first major MMA organization with a regular season, post-season, and championship instead of a year-round fighting schedule. The PFL consists of six weight classes and a playoff format with quarterfinals and semi-finals to determine who will go to the finals in their weight class.

For the 2021 season, the PFL only had a semi-finals playoff set-up for each weight class. The PFL season consists of ten events throughout the year, one less than the inaugural season of the PFL in 2018, with the last event being the event that crowns the champion in each of the six weight divisions.

ONE Championship

ONE Championship (formerly ONE Fighting Championship) is a mixed martial arts league based in Singapore and founded in 2011 by Chatri Sityodtong and Victor Cui. ONE Championship is the largest MMA promotion in Asia and is also in the top ten in viewership among all MMA brands. ONE Championship has nine weight classes for the men’s MMA side and two weight classes for the women’s MMA side. Each weight class has its own champion that has to defend the title at select ONE Championship events throughout the year.

HOW TO BET ON MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Betting on MMA league events is pretty simple. Each event will have a list of fights that will occur during that event. You will be able to bet on the two fighters involved in each match, with the betting format being a straight moneyline format. The moneyline will have the favorite with negative odds and the underdog with plus odds. This format will just require you to bet on who you think will be the winner of the fight.

Another betting option is the over/under on the number of takedowns during the fight. That bet is also a moneyline format, with plus odds on the least likely outcome and negative odds on the most likely outcome. Sometimes there will be a .5 on the over/under number, which will help guarantee there will be a winner or loser on the bet and not a draw.

Some fights will have props that you can bet on, including things like which fighter will win and the round in which they will win, if a fight will go the distance or not, and how the fighter will win the match. These props usually have plus odds, but some can have negative odds if oddsmakers feel the bet has the most likely outcome in the fight.

There are some things to look at when betting on MMA fights before making your wager for the fight. Here are a few things to look for before making your bet.

  • What is the record of the fighters involved in the match?
  • Are the fighters involved in the match on a winning or losing streak?
  • Are the fighters involved known to go the distance in their matches?
  • Have the two fighters faced each other before?
  • If the fight is a rematch between the fighters, who won the last fight?
  • If the fight is a rematch, has the person who lost made any adjustments to win the rematch?
  • What is the most common way each fighter wins their matches?
  • Are there any weaknesses that either fighter can exploit?

After looking at some of those simple things, you might find something to help you place a winning bet. You could also find an underdog with a better chance of winning against the favorite. If an underdog is good in an area where a favorite is weak, that underdog fighter could exploit that for a win, giving the bettor a nice payout in the process as well.

Rolling If Bets (RIF) allow you to use the balance (amount) from existing wagers to make a new wager. As long as existing wagers have not been graded, the amount wagered can still be used to make new wagers. However, if your original wager loses, the Rolling If Bet is then cancelled. There are two options for ties (pushes); you can specify if you want the Rolling If Bet to continue in case of a tie or simply cancel the RIF.

Rolling If Bets are:
  • only allowed on straight bets, Parlays and Teasers.
  • not available with Free Plays or Futures and Props
  • only available if you have pre existing, non graded wagers
  • you can only use the funds from the amount of the pre existing wager
How to Place a Rolling If Bet:
  • Choose any straight, parlay or teaser and Place it on the Bet Slip
  • Click on the Rolling If Bet button next to the wager detail
  • In the RIF dropdown, choose a wager that you want to use for RIF
  • Click on "If Win Only" or "If Win or Push" (explained above)
  • Fill in the amount and confirm your wager (the system will not allow you a higher amount than what is available)
