One of the most intriguing signings in UFC history was made recently. Irish born fighter Joseph Duffy, or as he is commonly known “The Last Man to Defeat the ‘Notorious’ Conor McGregor,” will make his UFC debut in March against Brazilian fighter Vagner Rocha. The fight will be held in Dallas.

It was a little over four years ago that Duffy defeated McGregor in a Cage Warriors fight in Ireland. Incredibly, the encounter lasted a short 38 seconds; Duffy was able to get McGregor to tap out with an arm-triangle choke. This historic fight is significant because McGregor hasn’t lost a single fight since then; his winning streak so far is 13 fights. Through his efforts he has gained tremendous popularity and was able to galvanize the UFC’s featherweight division, bring the UFC back to his home country, and sell out the Boston venue for his Sunday night fight against Dennis Siver.

Surprisingly, Duffy doesn’t want to be known as the last man to beat McGregor; he wants to pave his own way in the UFC. As he prepares to embark on this new journey, Duffy is adamant that he wants to be remembered for his future performances, not his past ones.

No matter how you slice it; Duffy cannot get rid of the proverbial feather in his cap that came as a result of his victory against McGregor. And although he is coming into the UFC arena as a lightweight, he’s open to fighting McGregor again; if the opportunity ever presented itself. Evidently, McGregor is open to this possibility also. He said in a recent interview, “… If that fight presents itself, you best believe I want that fight.” And there you have it folks. That’s a fight that will have everyone betting on their favorite MMA fighter; especially in Australian casinos where they really go wild for sports.

So far, Duffy has put together an impressive 12-1 pro MMA record as well as a 7-0 in boxing. So now that he is dedicating his full attention to MMA, he hopes to create his own identity in an arena that McGregor has virtually conquered; McGregor is slated to go up against champion Jose Aldo for the featherweight title in May. This fight will be the largest smaller class bout that MMA has ever had.

Frankie Perez is something special. Even when he was an amatuer mixed martial artist, people who watched him fight knew that he would one day fight for the biggest MMA organization in the world, the UFC. And now, after a 9-1 pro career, with his lone loss being a very close split decision against Chris Wade, Frankie makes his UFC debut tomorrow night on the undercard of the McGregor vs. Siver fight.

I've been lucky enough to see just about every one of Frankie's fights, and I've been saying for a long time that he is a world class fighter. Now he's going to get to showcase his skills to a worldwide audience. Frankie is the real deal, and I really look forward to him fighting the best fighters in the world.

The UFC Lightweight division is on notice: Franke Perez Jr. has arrived!

What is MMA?

Mixed Martial Arts – or MMA – originates from a full contact Brazilian fighting sport called vale tudo. It became mainstream in 1993 in the USA with the introduction of the UFC. Touted as a means of finding the best martial art for unarmed combat, the UFC rose in popularity due to its ‘minimal rules’ concept and the excitement of the crowds. Before long, trainers identified that no single style was necessarily better than another, and so they isolated several pieces from a variety of martial arts and blended them into a new form of unarmed combat.

MMA today

Today, this new style is known as Mixed Martial Arts and has grown into a multi-million dollar global sport. Entire TV channels are dedicated to this sport, with many mainstream brands clamoring to sponsor the world’s elite athletes. And with a massive cash injection into the sport, betting on MMA has become a massive draw card.

Where to bet on MMA?

There are plenty of online casinos where you can place a bet on MMA fights. An excellent resource to find the right casino for you is http://www.metap.org. They have everything organized for you.

Before actually placing a bet on an MMA fight, it is important to know how the betting structure works. MMA betting does not work along the lines of more established sports like NFL or NBA where one would place a bet on the Dallas Cowboys winning by 17 points (Dallas Cowboys +17). The betting for MMA works on a money line.

For example, if one were to place bets on a fight between Jon Jones' and Glover Teixeira – two of the sport’s best fighters – the odds could hypothetically look something like this:

  • Jon Jones (-350)
  • Glover Texeira (+285)

This may seem complex, but is in fact relatively simple. The one with the negative before the number is the odds on favorite to win the fight. For every $3.50 placed on Jon Jones to win, the payout would be $1. The same principle would then be applied to betting on Glover Texeira. With every $1 placed on this fighter winning the match, $2.85 would be paid out.

The skill of betting on MMA

There is a lot of skill in establishing which fighter to bet on, and that includes following the MMA quite closely in order to see which fighters are on form. It is also important to know the players’ strengths and weaknesses. Due to the fact that fighters use a combination of martial arts to create their own style, some fighters are perhaps weaker against a certain opponent. For example, if one fighter’s style relies heavily on grappling, yet his standup fighting is weak (Mui Thai or kickboxing), it could have an impact on the outcome of the fight.

Now that MMA is on NBC Sports, Fox Sports and Spike TV, following the sport and learning about individual fighters is easier than ever.  There are many televised events, sometimes with several different promotions holding events on the same day. Plus there are many websites and resourses for gamblers to study up on individual fighters. So do your research, then place your bets and enjoy the fights.
