Here we want to give you valuable tips and advice on how to successfully place bets on MMA and especially UFC bets. In addition, we explain the different types of bets that are available for MMA bets.
MMA betting editorial team: Betting on the UFC and other MMA events is growing in popularity, as is, of course, MMA as a sport itself. Nevertheless, it is partly uncharted territory, especially for German-speaking betting fans and bookmakers.
In addition, MMA as a sport and competition is by its nature less predictable than other, more limited martial arts and general types of competition. The numerous possibilities in which a fight can end or areas in which the advantages and disadvantages of the fighters have to be weighed against each other make predictions more difficult here than, for example, in American mass sports such as baseball, which are completely riddled with numbers and statistics (probably the most statistic Sport at all), American football or basketball.
The second, decisive advantage that you have as an MMA bettor over bookmakers is the following: In contrast to the "big" sports already mentioned several times, MMA does not yet have such well-engineered systems to calculate the odds. The calculation of odds is a highly complicated mathematical process, in which a number of statistics are calculated using computer algorithms, then corrected again by factors such as injuries, form, etc. and at the end there is a probability that is then converted into the respective odds format and the profit margin is added. To explain the whole thing in more detail doesn't make much sense here and would lead too far, if you are interested there are of course extensive articles, e.g. on Wikipedia.
The aim of this section is to explain the different types of bets that are available for MMA bets and at the same time to address their advantages and disadvantages. We hope this will help our readers better understand and be more successful when betting on UFC and MMA.
