Ultimate fighting has earned the respect of sport's bettors around the world. When looking over a fight card, the bigger names immediately grab your attention.


"To me the records were just a starting point," recalls John Paul Jones, "The most important thing was always the stage show. So many great nights. At our worst we were still better than most. At our best we could just wipe the floor with the lot of them. It was just a very good live band."

Here are a few tips on how the lines work in MMA fighting.

Those + and - numbers you see next to a fight is called the Money Line.

Its all based on $100.

If a fighter is a FAVORITE, they will have a minus (-) line.
For instance, in UFC 68, Tim Sylvia is a -350 Favorite. That means, in order for you to WIN $100, you must wager $350. So if you bet $350 on Tim Sylvia to WIN, your total Payout would be $450.

Easy right?

Now, if a fighter is an UNDERDOG, they will have a plus (+) line. For instance, Randy Couture is a +280 Underdog against Tim Sylvia. That means, for every $100 you wager, you win $280 back! So, if you bet $100 on Randy Couture to WIN, your total payout be $380!

Its that simple.

As for Over/Under, I'll have to correct my buddy Acidofil in its importance to the MMA bettor. (sorry pal!)

At, we offer you the ability to pick the Over/Under in the ROUNDS of MMA fights! So you don't just get an opportunity to pick who will win, but you can wager on how long the fight will last!

For instance, in the Chris Lytle vs Matt Hughes fight, The Over/Under is set at 1.5 rounds.
