Im not from vegas so I cant help you there but I do bet on fights. I can tell you from experience dont make a bodog or betus account. I think that 5dimes is the best book in town. They have a lot of fights to bet on and can bet as low as one dollar. They have a ton of prop bets and you can even bet on how a fighter wont win. as in Melvin Manhoef wont win by sub. pretty fun book. Also you can go to bestfightodds.com and it will show you the lines for about 7 major betting sites.

Just don't use any negatively reviewed sites. I lost almost a grand that was in my account when BetOnSports.com all of a sudden closed down years ago.. I couldn't legally claim it was my money without admitting to a crime because of the legalities of online betting in my state. Check payouts and what cut they take when you want to cash out.
If you're a small bettor some sites will take for instance $50 if you cash out and take 60 days to get you your money. That's not a rarity either in terms of their take and the timeline on the payout. So if you're dropping in $50 into an account and plan to cash out when you double your money, you're not going to gain anything. Just be very aware of their take on the cash-out and only use a well reviewed, established site.
Here's a good site for reviews if you want to take some time and browse around a little bit: Sportsbook Reviews

Bodog has more Juice than any other line. For that reason alone i'd avoid it.
Use a sportsbook that allows for the most possible ways of betting on the fight. Those are the sportsbooks that have the most lines worth betting. Picking Maia to win against sonnen might have been -200. But picking Maia to win via sub before round 2 starts might have won you a +200 bet.
