UFC / MMA Betting Frequently Asked Questions

We will explain all these diffferent types of UFC bets in more detail further below.
What is 'Method Of Victory' betting in UFC?
With UFC betting you can also wager on ‘Method of Victory’ market, e.g. for a fighter to win by KO, TKO or Disqualification; to win by Decision or Technical Decision, to win by Submission or for the fight to end in a Draw or Technical Draw. This is often a good way of getting bigger odds on a hot favourite.
What is Round betting in UFC?
There is also the option of ‘Round Betting’, where you would wager on a fighter to win on points, or to select the round in which they will win (Round1, Round 2, etc), or for the fight to end in a Draw.
What is 'Total Rounds' (Over/Under) betting?
Total Rounds betting is a simple two-way Over/Under market where you are betting how many rounds the bout will go, irrespective of the winner, e.g. Over 3.5/Under 3.5.
What is 'Round Group' betting?
Round Group betting gives the bettor the chance to back a fighter to win across a specified number of rounds, e.g. to win in Round 1-2, or to win in Round 3-4, or a Draw.
Can I bet on when a UFC fight will end?

What are some tips & advice for betting on UFC?
When it comes to choosing where to put your hard-earned dollars when betting on UFC, there are a number of important factors to take into account.
As in all sports, a fighter’s recent momentum is a big issue. If a fighter has won his last eight fights with six 1st round KOs, he/she is clearly in dominant form. If their opponent has lost four of their last five fights by KO, that should signal some alarm bells.
It’s also important to know who those fights have been against. Is it a case of a fighter having a winning record against lower caliber opponents? Have the losses all been against elite fighters? It's also worthwhile checking to see how the fighting styles matchup. For example, if a fighter is a KO specialist but a poor grappler, that could prove costly against someone with a strong defense who is a submission expert.
Is a fighter's age a big factor in UFC betting?
Age can also be a big factor when it comes to betting on the UFC, with some fighters in the twilight of their careers often vulnerable against those in their prime. Physical attributes such as height, weight and reach should also be taken into account.
