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.

BOUTS-

Another short story of mine, this one flash fiction (under 1000 words) has been published by an awesome noir crime site called Shotgun Honey. I highly recommend you check out the site for some great flash fiction.


Here's the opening paragraph:

Next thing you know somebody better call the cops, ’cause some bad shit is goin’ down. Problem is there’s nobody here to call the cops. The only ones here are me and the missus, and the missus can’t call ’cause she’s too busy covering me with her Glock. Besides, she wouldn’t call anyway because that’s not how she rolls. And I can’t call because I’m the one being covered, and I don’t think the missus would appreciate me making any sudden movements, such as taking out my cell phone and dialing 9-1-1. Plus, I’m pretending to be paralyzed and I don’t want to break character. So like I said, nobody’s here to call the cops.
