The UFC is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States, Canada, UK and several parts of Europe. The sport is still fairly new to the mainstream sports fans, but over the past several years there have been millions of fans that have started watching the sport. Many UFC fans love betting on their favourite fighters, but before you can bet on your favourite fighters, you are going to need to make sure you know how to read UFC betting odds.
The majority of your bets in the UFC will end up being on the moneyline odds of a fighter winning a fight. You simply need to determine which fighter is going to win the fight and then you make a wager on them. All you need to know is that when there is a negative sign in front of the odds you will need to risk juice and when there is a positive sign you don't need to risk juice. One thing you need to watch out for in the UFC is betting on heavy favourites that are expected to win. Risking a lot of juice is fine in some instances, but you really need to be careful about them since one or two losses can really hurt your bankroll.
Frank Mir +275 vs. Brock Lesnar -300
Since most people expect Lesnar to win the fight in the example above you need to risk a lot of money when you bet on Lesnar in order to win a small amount. It would take a $30 bet just to win $10 on Lesnar whereas if you bet $10 only on Mir you could win $27.50 if he wins the fight.
Most of the other types of bets that you will make in the UFC will be prop bets such as betting on how a fighter will win a fight or how long it will take a fighter to win a fight. Prop bets make watching the fight a lot more fun and it gives you the opportunity to make some extra money as well.
