Fighters Favoured By Betting Sites

When people place a bet on an MMA fight, it is important to choose the best athlete. Betting sites use a variety of factors to calculate the most likely winner. The odds on these fighters will be better. However, it also means the payout to gamblers will be lower. A number of big-name MMA fighters are often favoured by betting companies.

Fedor Emelianenko

Emelianenko is fairly unique in the world of MMA in that he has never taken part in the UFC. Despite this, he is still considered a huge name in the mixed martial arts community. At one point he had a 28 winning streak. He defeated a number of well-known people. This included Mark Coleman, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Mark Hunt and Mirko “Cro Cop”. Emelianenko’s long list of achievements has made him a legend of the sport.

Demetrious Johnson

Johnson reigned as champion for 6 years. During this time, betting sites would usually favour him to win in matches. This flyweight succeeded in defending his championship belt a total of 11 times. It was a record at the time. Johnson sought out the toughest fighters to beat. He is known as the “Mighty Mouse” by fans within the UFC community.

Conor McGregor

McGregor has become one of the most recognizable names in all of MMA. Even those unfamiliar with the sport are likely to have heard of him. He is favoured not so much for putting in the years but for his performance. In one match he managed to beat Jose Aldo in just 13 seconds.

In 2016 he was the first-ever champion of 2 UFC divisions. McGregor soon became a mainstream success. He transitioned from MMA to boxing by participating in a match with Floyd Mayweather. His worldwide fame has made McGregor a popular choice with gamblers.
