Discover the Most Popular Types of Sports Bets in MMA

The sports betting market is poised to keep growing in Brazil as the activity becomes increasingly regulated in the country. Among the sports that attract Brazilian bettors is MMA (Mixed Martial Arts), a discipline that has seen numerous Brazilian fighters ranked among the world’s best. While the options in a sport like soccer are more widely known, do you know which types of bets are most popular in MMA? Let’s explore this in the article.

Betting on MMA

Fight Winner

This is the most straightforward type of bet, where you only need to select who you believe will win the fight, by any method and in any number of rounds.

Over/Under Number of Rounds

The functionality is similar to the over/under found in soccer and other sports, but it concerns the number of rounds. For example, if the bet is on over (more than) 2.5 rounds, the bettor wins if the fight lasts 3 rounds or more and loses if it ends before the third round, regardless of the outcome.

Exact Number of Rounds

In addition to the over/under line for rounds, you can also bet on the exact round in which the fight will end. The odds are higher in this case, but naturally, the difficulty of hitting it “spot on” is greater. Here, it doesn’t matter who wins the fight.

Method of Victory

This is an MMA-specific betting line that doesn’t exist in most other sports. It involves predicting the method through which a particular fighter will win. Typically, the options are: Knockout (including technical knockout), submission, and decision/technical decision. Depending on the site, you can also bet on a fighter being disqualified or on a draw.

Combination Bets

Multiple or combination bets are also very popular in MMA. Besides accumulating wins for several fighters, you can combine conditions within a single fight, depending on the site. For instance, you could bet that a particular fighter will win the fight in the third round by submission. Naturally, the odds increase with each additional condition.

As the regulatory environment for sports betting continues to develop in Brazil, the variety and complexity of betting options will likely grow, providing more opportunities and excitement for bettors. Whether you’re a seasoned bettor or a newcomer to MMA betting, understanding these popular types of bets can enhance your betting experience and potentially your success.
