Clues for Handicapping UFC Home Country Cards

The majority of UFC cards take place in the United States. In their attempt to conquer the entire world, though, the organization has taken their events around the world. They have held events in Canada, Brazil, Australia and across Europe, and they are soon heading to Japan. Typically, when the organization heads into those countries - especially for the first few times - they like to stack the card with as many cheering interests for the home town crowds as they possibly can. When they first headed to Brazil, for example, there was a Brazilia ...

Handicapping Different MMA Fighter Styles

Betting Issues of Last Minute UFC Changes

MMA is a brutal sport, and training for it is incredibly tough ad demanding. Itís not a wonder, then, that injuries are an unfortunate but frequent part of the lead up to any fight card in the UFC. When injuries happen after the fight card is set organizers are frequently required to bring someone in to replace the hurt fighter on short notice because the fight as already been placed on the card. These last minute fill-is - guys who step up in the last week or two before a fight - are challenging for handicappers to deal with, but they have too ...

Picking Most Valuable UFC Fighting Cards

As the UFC grows they are adding more and more cards every year. In 2012 they scheduled well over 30 cards. They have to have that many fights because their aggressive expansion and the swallowing of all the other organizations out there has left them with a whole lot of fighters that want to see action, and a whole lot of markets that need to be served. There are the pay per view events that has always been at the heart of the organization, but those have been joined by events on network TV and cable. Undercards are on Facebook and on several ...

Which UFC Match To Bet On - Free vs PPV

For bettors there are some distinct differences between betting on PPV cards and betting on others. Hereís a ...

Handicapping UFC Event Locations

When people talk about handicapping UFC events one of the factors that comes up often is the location of the fight and the advantage that can give to fighters from that country. The UFC likes to schedule home country fighters in events in their own countries to boost the box office appeal of the event - Australians in Australia, Canadians in Canada, and so on. Does that really give those fighters an edge, and is it worth betting on them as a result? Hereís a look at four factors to consider: ...

How UFC Weight Class Impacts Betting

In the UFC you could loosely break fighters into three different groups based on their weight classes. There are the big men - the heavyweights and some light heavyweights - though not as many now as there used to be as the light heavyweights have become more technical and less about brute force. There are the little guys - the Bantamweights, featherweights, and lightweights. Then there are the guys in the middle - the welterweights and middleweights.
