MMA's rising popularity means there is no shortage of bookmaker websites where you can place your bets on the sport, but with so many bookies to choose from which ones offer the most competitive odds and the best service?
Not only does Bettingpro. Our comprehensive reviews give you a rundown of what you can expect from the bookies when you become a customer of theirs. Is there an incentive to sign up at the website - ie. Are their odds competitive? Do they offer much variety in the way of markets? What special promotions can I use to insure my bet or boost my pay-out if it is a winner? What standard of customer service can I expect?
All of those questions, and more, are answered in our reviews that you can access HERE. The sign-up incentive has become a staple of the betting industry with bookmakers now offering new customers the chance to claim free bets, risk-free bets and more when they register for a new online account. But what offers are available to you right now?
Betting on mixed martial arts has never been so popular, with more and more bookmakers offering more and more markets for the fast-rising sport. But which markets should you be using to make a profit when betting on MMA? Here is our guide to the key markets…. This market could not be any simpler — you are betting on who will win the fight. It does not matter if the bout is won by decision, submission or knockout, as long as the fighter you back is victorious your bet will be a winner.
Of course, that means the appeal of this market is solely dependent on how open the fight is and that means the only real opportunity to make a profit comes when the bookmakers are struggling to separate two fighters. By having to select a method of victory you are immediately getting a bigger price for backing your chosen fighter.
The Total Rounds market gives you the chance to bet on how many rounds the fight will or will not last. So, using Khabib v Ferguson as the example again, you would back Over 4. Alternatively, if you liked the chances of a fighter winning in the first three rounds you would back Under 3. One of the most popular ways to bet on combat sports is to bet on which round the fight will finish, and this market covers every single round in the fight.
If there is a market in which you can make a big profit, it is this one.

Mixed Martial Arts' rise to being one of the most popular sports on the planet has been nothing short of spectacular, and of all of the promotions out there the biggest is undoubtedly the Ultimate Fighting Championship UFC.
Founded in , the UFC was designed to answer some age-old questions. Could a wrestler beat a boxer? Could a karate fighter beat a jiu jitsu expert? And how would a sumo wrestler fare in the world of combat sports? UFC 12 had to be moved from Buffalo to Dothan, Alabama after MMA was effectively banned by the state, and the company continue to haemorrhage cash as each event went by.
In an attempt to stem the tide against mixed martial arts UFC bosses introduced weight classes, rounds and five minute time limits — as well as a number of other rules — but the promotion continued to lose money and in January parent company Semaphore Entertainment Group — on the brink of bankruptcy — sold up. Step forward, Dana White and the Fertitta brothers.
And I said 'What you don't understand is I'm getting the most valuable thing that I could possibly have, which is those three letters: That is what's going to make this thing work. Everybody knows that brand, whether they like it or they don't like it, they react to it. The UFC shifted its operations to Las Vegas — considered the fight capital of the world — and the trio of Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture began to lay the foundations for the success that has come since.
Ken Shamrock — a star in the early days — returned to the company to reignite his rivalry with Ortiz and their UFC 40 bout reportedly kept the company afloat.
