Fights without rules – as fans of mixed martial arts competitions so commonly call. However, there are rules in them, and quite strict, so the nuances of the fights must be taken into account, choosing them as earnings. The meeting of opponents takes place in a special cage. A regular MMA fight lasts three rounds of 5 minutes each. But title fights (battles for the champion title) usually last 5 rounds of 5 minutes each.

Types of bets on UFC fights
The prestige of the tournaments organized by the UFC is quite high. There are K-1 martial arts fights – Japanese tournaments that combine mixed martial arts and a full-fledged championship. Fights are spectacular, cruel and unpredictable.
To make profitable bets on the UFC, you need to choose a BC and see the proposed line. Traditionally, the following outcomes are given:
- Moneyline – bet on winner. Better needs to bet on the victory of one of the opponents. Since they are often approximately equal in weight category, level of training, physical strength, there are no obvious favorites and underdogs, and in sportsbooks they offer attractive odds of 1.75 and higher.
- Bet on Total. The mural offers frankly attractive kefs, which, if the bet wins, will bring a good profit. You can bet on the early end of the battle, knowing the shape of the opponents and their tactics.
- Winner by decision. Most of all, this type is suitable for live mode, when a player can observe the reaction of judges and adjust their own strategy already in the process. A sweepstake for this type of bet is not the most popular, but is considered the least risky.
- Bet on win by submission. If there is a clearly expressed underdog, you can safely bet on the victory of the favorite with a trick. Bookmakers rarely offer high coefficients for this type of bet, but if the chances of players to win are approximately the same, the odds can reach 5.9.
Options for betting winning strategies
The games are full of surprises and surprises, so the difficulty for the bettor is making forecasts. You must make UFS bets adhering to certain tactics – this increases the chances of winning a bet with a bookmaker. The minimum number of rules, the selection of rivals by weight category and level of training, and other important factors lead to the fact that even experienced BC analysts cannot accurately determine the clear favorite and underdog of the confrontation.
This makes it possible to bet with high odds. Once you have decided on a place, choose the appropriate strategy based on the selected bet:
- To an opponent with wrestling qualities. If you analyze the statistics of fights in mixed martial arts, then note that often athletes who have good wrestling skills win. Winners are those who use painful techniques, strangulation of rivals. They get more early wins than knockouts.
- On a fighter with a heavy blow. If in the fights without rules one of the opponents has a strong knockout blow, it is likely that he will try to seize an early victory. What to do in such a situation? Set at a lower ratio per favorite.
- On a strong-willed fighter. In such a tough sport, the character of the opponents is of great importance. A fighter can have a strong blow and even be physically weaker than the enemy. But if he has a pronounced willpower, then he can turn the tide of the fight in his favor.
Often, the winners of sporting events are fighters of a universal type. It is understood that they sufficiently possess high wrestling qualities, striking power and strong-willed character. Such a fighter almost always wins, so be sure to consider this circumstance.
