MMA is the fastest growing sport in the world. Since it first exploded on the scene in 1993 with UFC 1, the sport has grown by leaps and bounds, and now events take place all over the world. In fact, in countries as diverse as Sweden, Mexico and China, MMA is growing at an amazing rate. There is just something special about two competitors being locked in a cage for 15 to 25 minutes, in a battle to determine which fighter is the best fighter that night.

At first, the sport of MMA was strictly a man's game. But after a few years, women decided to get in on the action, and eventually big female MMA stars were born. Gina Carano, who fought for Strikeforce, became an action movie star after her MMA career ended. And now Ronda Rousey, the reigning UFC women's champion, is following in Gina's footsteps, with a recent movie credit in the Expendables 3 with Sylvester Stallone.

But not only are the fighters and fans winning in MMA. The soaring popularity of mixed martial arts has presented enthusiasts on betting with ample opportunity to get in on the action as well. One of the popular amongst online bookmakers is William Hill, where you can wager on MMA and many other sports as well. You can visit their website to see all of their sports betting offers such as on Mixed Martial Arts, boxing, basketball and so on.

There is a lot of money to be made by savvy bettors who study MMA. Knowing the fighters, their strengths and weaknesses, and their current injury status, can tell you a lot about who will win the fight. When it comes to betting on MMA, it's more about skill than luck, so if you are a devoted fan, you definitely have an inside track when it comes to betting on the fights.

Betting on MMA, in some ways, actually makes more sense than betting on team sports. With just two competitors facing off, it's much easier to study the fighters and learn about how their styles will mesh in the cage. In addition, the fighters all have social media accounts, which provide valuable insider information about how the fighters are doing in their training camps, and what fans can expect to see come fight night.

If you're thinking on trying your hand at sports betting, checking the odds on MMA is a great way to get started. But remember to roll it in a trustworthy portal for safety especially when dealing online.

Asylum Fight League 46 took place this past Saturday at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and as usual it was a fantastic night of fights.

Two titles were up for grabs. The Asylum Fight League HW title remained around the waist of the NY Strangler Trevor McGovern, who improved to 7-1, with all 7 wins coming by way of rear naked choke submission.  And in the main event, for the vacant Asylum SHW title, Pat Egbert and Matt Hill fought a very tough 3 rounds, with the decision going to hill. Interestingly, it was the only fight on the card to go the distance. Yes, it was a crazy night, but we've come to expect that from the Asylum.

Here are the official results from all the night's bouts:

The Asylum Fight League is New Jersey's longest run amateur fight promotion, and their shows are must-see events for people in Atlantic City. Tomorrow night, Asylum Fight League 46 takes place at the famed Trump Taj Mahal casino hotel in AC, and this card is one of the Asylum's most anticipated ones yet.

Rising New Jersey MMA star Frankie Perez makes his World Series of Fighting debut tonight against Tom Marcellino on NBC Sports. Perez is well known as one of the best fighters on the East Coast, and tonight is his chance to display his skills to a national audience. Frankie is 8-1 as a pro, with 5 submission victorys and 1 knockout. His one loss was a razor thin split decision to hightly touted Chris Wade, who recently made his UFC debut.

I've been covering Frankie Perez from early in his career. He is a talented fighter who is very dangerous both standing and on the ground. He has been improving by leaps and bounds and I think he's more than ready to show the MMA what he is capable of tonight on NBC.

Frankie is on the main card, and fights at 9:00pm. So be sure to check him out.

On July 5, 2014, UFC champion Ronda Rousey defended her UFC Bantamweight title against Alexis Davis. Sixteen seconds in, and Davis was kneed-in-the-groin, flipped over the hip, head held in a deadlock, bam, bam, bam and the fight was over. Rowdy Ronda Rousey had won yet another championship.

It was the sort of spectacle that many have come to expect from Rousey. Certainly, there have been other notable female competitors in the sport, like Gina Carano or Cris “Cyborg” Justino. But a big part of what distinguishes Rousey is that she’s proving to be an excellent mascot, by combining the charisma and beauty of Carano with the in-cage savagery of Justino. Rousey has even managed to parlay her celebrity status into other ventures, modeling for provocative magazine spreads and acting in action films.

She has her detractors, certainly. News of her recent film work has also invited speculation about her dedication to the sport. Is she a superb athlete, or an opportunist whose ambitions lie elsewhere. What some of her critics may not realize, however, is that for Rousey, there are family precedents for greatness in fighting...

In 1984, Ronda's mom, AnnMaria De Mars, was the first American woman to win the World judo championship. Her mom was a tough and determined woman too. She trained Ronda in judoka, and Ronda won the bronze medal in the Beijing 2008 Olympics in judo. Ronda became the first American woman to win an Olympic medal in that discipline.

Ronda would decide to enter into the professional MMA world in 2011. She made even more of a name for herself on March 3, 2012 when she fought Miesha Tate, the reigning Strikeforce champion in the women's division. Ronda won two times: first she beat Miesha mentally by evoking Muhammad Ali with her now signature 'trash talk (which Rousey insists is to generate publicity for fights). Ronda used this negativity as a strategy to get Miesha angry and break her concentration. It worked; Ms. Rousey defeated Ms. Tate in the ring with her classic armbar technique.

Their fight drew the attention of Mr. Dana White, head of the UFC. Their fight prompted Mr. White to take a second look at his decision not to have female fighters as contenders inside the Octagon. Because of her prowess as a fighter, Mr. White made Ms. Rousey his next superstar in the UFC. Her next fight with Liz Carmouche signaled another first for Ronda — she and Liz were the first women to fight in the UFC. She won that contest to become the UFC Bantamweight Champion. It has been a wonderful ride for her ever since.

Ms. Rousey has progressively improved her fighting skills, admitting to practicing her striking abilities the most. People have critiqued her on those skills as well as her not acting as a lady should. Ronda knows her weaknesses; that is why she works as hard as she does to improve herself. Concerning being a lady, she is not in a “lady like” profession; a “lady” would not make a living out of beating the crap out of someone!

She recently won the ESPY Award in the category of “best female athlete” for 2014. She was a contender in the category of “best fighter.” She is the first UFC fighter to ever win that award. She is also gearing up for her role in the Entourage movie. She even plays a role in the forthcoming Expendables 3, sharing the screen with Stallone and Schwarzenegger. In terms of overall visibility, this will be great for Rousey, as both previous installments of the Expendables have performed well at the box office and both are being screened frequently on TV (more info here.) Whether or not this legitimizes or delegitimizes Rousey in the eyes of MMA purists remains to be seen. Regardless, it is very likely that Rousey will attract new viewership, and potentially even bring respect to the MMA for women.
