UFC had enjoyed a burst of growth that has seen it grow from a rough sport to a well-watched sport around the globe. With famous UFC fighters such as Conor MacGregor, who is popular in the sporting world, it is not hard to see why the sport has become widely accepted.

Betting on UFC fighters
Betting on UFC fighters is quite fun and easy to do. Most newbies do not know the popular types of bets they can place. In this section, we will examine three of the most popular betting categories.
The money line bet
This type of bet is also known as the match bet. It is the most popular bet type and involves picking the winner of a fight. Put, all you have to do is predict who wins a match. The manner of winning and the round they win doesn’t affect your prediction.
Over Under round bets
This betting type allows you to predict the period you think the fight would end. For instance, in a three-round battle, you are allowed to predict the round you think the match would end. If you make a bet, the game will end in under 2.5 rounds. You would need the fight to finish before the two and a half minute mark of the third round. The mode and manner of the win aren’t relevant.
Proposition bets or prop bets, as they are popularly called, do not fit into conventional betting. Prop bets are specific bets that predict actions that might occur during the fight. For example, you can bet on what fighter would throw more kicks than the other. The outcome of the match doesn’t affect these kinds of bets as they are solely based on events that occur during the match.
