History of the UFC

The UFC’s journey from a niche spectacle to a global sports powerhouse is a testament to its adaptability, strategic leadership, and the universal appeal of mixed martial arts.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was founded in 1993 by Art Davie, Rorion Gracie, and Robert Meyrowitz. The first event, UFC 1, took place on November 12, 1993, in Denver, Colorado.

The idea was to pit fighters of different disciplines against each other to determine the most effective martial art. Early UFC events had minimal rules and no weight classes, aiming to simulate real fights as closely as possible.

Dana White

Dana White became president of the UFC in 2001 after the company was purchased by his friends, Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, for $2 million. Under White’s leadership, the UFC transformed from a nearly bankrupt organization into a multi-billion dollar enterprise. White’s vision and business acumen were crucial in negotiating television deals, expanding the brand globally, and implementing more stringent regulations to legitimize the sport.

Growth of the UFC

  • Television Deals: In 2005, the reality TV series “The Ultimate Fighter” premiered on Spike TV, significantly boosting the UFC’s popularity and viewership.
  • Mainstream Acceptance: UFC 100 in 2009 set a pay-per-view record with 1.6 million buys. By 2016, UFC 205 marked the promotion’s debut at Madison Square Garden, breaking the gate record for the arena with $17.7 million in ticket sales.
  • Acquisition: In 2016, UFC was sold to Endeavor (formerly WME-IMG) for approximately $4 billion, reflecting its massive growth and mainstream acceptance. In September 2023 the WWE and UFC officially merged in $21.4-billion deal

Notable Champions

  1. Anderson Silva: Middleweight Champion from 2006 to 2013, Silva holds the record for the longest title reign in UFC history at 2,457 days.
  2. Georges St-Pierre: A two-division champion (Welterweight and Middleweight), GSP is considered one of the greatest fighters of all time with a professional record of 26 wins and 2 losses.
  3. Jon Jones: Dominated the Light Heavyweight division with a record 14 title defenses, known for his versatility and unorthodox fighting style.
  4. Ronda Rousey: The first female champion in UFC history, Rousey brought significant attention to women’s MMA, defending her Bantamweight title six times.
  5. Conor McGregor: Known for his charismatic personality and striking skills, McGregor became the first fighter to hold titles in two weight classes simultaneously (Featherweight and Lightweight).

Stats and Milestones

  • Events: Over 600 events held worldwide as of 2024.
  • Global Reach: UFC broadcasts reach over 150 countries in more than 25 languages.
  • Pay-Per-View: UFC events regularly achieve over 1 million buys, with UFC 229 (Khabib vs. McGregor) setting a record with 2.4 million buys.

UFC / MMA Betting Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Moneyline in UFC betting?

This is the most straightforward UFC bet available and simply involves selecting which fighter you think will win any specific bout. This is refered to as the Moneyline or sometimes the Win line.

Are there any other types of UFC bets?

Yes, there are a number of other UFC bet options available besides predicting the winner in most fights, including Method of Victory, Round Betting, Total Rounds, Round Groups betting, when will the fight end and sometimes other UFC proposition bets (‘prop bets’ for short), which cover bets beyond these popular ones, particularly the more high-profile fights.

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?

Yes, another popular UFC betting market is 'When will the fight end?'. Will the bout go the full distance, will either fighter win on Points, either in Round 1, either in Round 2, etc.

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 match-up. 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.

make sure to consult historical UFC fight statistics and fighter data to understand fighter weaknesses and strengths.

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.
