UFC Betting Options for New Zealand Punters

While the colourful characters and carefully scripted wrestling that the WWE presents prevail, UFC online betting covers some very entertaining, and potentially incredible lucrative events for those who enjoy mixed martial arts.

The popularity of the MMA has skyrocketed in recent years, with almost half a million spectators showing up for the UFC175 show in 2014. This surge in popularity has been more than matched by UFC betting on mixed martial arts events, as well.

International Events for UFC Betting

Although UFC is based in Las Vegas, the American playground, its events are produced all over the world, from Rio right through to London. The fights that it presents are offered in 8 different weight categories, and these range from flyweight through to heavyweight, and the UFC betting odds are as exciting, and changeable, as the star athletes themselves.

Women’s MMA fights have also enjoyed an increase in viewership, and 2012 saw the UFC crown its first female champion. Ronda Rousey took the women’s bantamweight title in that year, and in 2013, the UFC chose to make use of the strawweight category, not usually recognised, for a tournament featuring only women. UFC betting will provide you with options to make wagers on these fights as well as the ones their male counterparts participate in.

Key UFC Online Betting Factors for Consideration

When you take up UFC online betting, the most important thing to remember is that knowledge is power. The factors which you need to take into account when weighing up UFC betting odds include the age, height, weight, previous win rate, where the fighter has been training, and which martial arts disciplines they have mastered. These can include a number of standard fighting styles, like freestyle wrestling, boxing, and judo to more niche types like Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Kyokushin karate, Sanshou, Muay Thai, and Jeet Kune Do.

When the numbers were crunched, MMA betting statistics showed that Japanese fighters are 71% more likely to lose, and that as many as 60% of those what had managed a minimum of 3 decision wins were more likely to win. An additional 24% of these were even likelier to triumph if they combatant was 3% taller than the fighter they opposed. These are all elements that need to be taken into account when you take up UFC online betting.

Obscure Bets for UFC Events

UFC betting types, and the attached UFC betting odds, are not limited to who will win a fight. Proposition bets are often able to net you a bigger win, as they involve not only who the winner will eventually be, but also how they will be able to triumph. Other UFC betting types could include guesses on whether or not the fight will go the distance, whether it will rely on a decision from the judges, or if it will end in submission, or thanks to a knockout.
