Read on to learn more about MMA, or for further information, delve into our MMA betting guide !

Rules of MMA

MMA is simple enough to understand, and it’s easy for beginners to tune into occasional bouts worldwide. Professional MMA fights typically last between three to five rounds, each five minutes long, offering fighters a one-minute rest between each round.

The fight can end as a result of a knockout (KO), surrender (via submission), or by the card decision of the judges. Fighters are separated into weight classes and compete in various leagues, ensuring even competition.

In the Octagon, there are several rules that fighters must adhere to. It’s illegal to hit the back of an opponent’s head, neck, throat, spine, or intimate parts, and fighters are not allowed to kick their opponents when they’re on the ground. Head-butting, spitting, eye gauging, and biting are all forbidden.

Betting Options

There are a wide range of MMA betting options and types of bets you can place, whether this be for upcoming fights, or live as the action is taking place . The popular types of MMA bets include:

Moneyline (Head-to-Head)

The easiest way to bet on MMA is to place a moneyline bet. In a moneyline bet, your job is simply picking the winner of an upcoming fight. In standard moneyline bets, it doesn’t matter how the fight ends or in which round it ends; your only concern is which fighter will emerge victorious. Thanks to its simplicity, the MMA moneyline is a great bet to place as a beginner.

Asian Total

An Asian Total bet is sometimes referred to as over/under betting. In MMA betting, the Asian total might be 2.5 for a fight. You can bet on whether the fight will last over or under 2.5 rounds. This is an attractive proposition for MMA fans, as you can draw on previous knowledge of fighters and their records to predict how long their next fight will last before a winner is declared.


There are many different names for multibets in the world of sports betting. Some people know them as parlays, while others refer to them as accumulators. Regardless, MMA multibets let you make several selections on the same betting slip. As most MMA fight nights have a card of fights throughout the night, you can back multiple fighters to win their respective bouts. As a result, you can access longer odds and potentially higher payouts if your selections all come in.


Now that you understand the different ways to bet on MMA at Stake, let’s look at some of the major MMA competitions you can tune into.

The biggest MMA organisation is the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) , founded in 1993 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The likes of Khabi Nurmagomedov, Conor McGregor, Tito Ortiz, and Anderson Silva have all made their names as UFC fighters, and it’s often the competition that attracts the biggest crowds.

UFC events take place worldwide, and there are 12 weight divisions - eight for men and four for women. UFC fights attract pay-per-view viewers from around the world, which drives up the prize money and offers fighters the chance to win life-changing amounts of money.

At Stake.com, you can bet on your favourite UFC fighters at every event throughout the season. We cover all men’s and women’s UFC markets, ensuring that you can back your favourite fighters as they take to the UFC Octagon throughout the season.

We’re proud to be the official betting partner of the UFC and partner with some legendary UFC champion fighters including Alexa Grasso , Jailton Almeida , Israel Adesanya , Alex Pereira and Alexandre Pantoja .


Headquartered in Hollywood, California, Bellator has been one of the major MMA organisations since 2008. Like the UFC, the Bellator has made stars of some of the biggest names in MMA, including Michael Chandler, Ryan Bader, Lyoto Machida, and Patricio Friere.

The Bellator broadcasts to more than 160 countries worldwide, and fights take place in different countries; such is the allure and quality of the fights that occur throughout the year.

In The Bellator, there are only nine weight divisions - seven for men and two for women. Bellator events are also organised slightly differently from the UFC and have attracted fans of its single-elimination format.

PFL (Professional Fighters League)

Established in 2017, the Professional Fighters League (PFL) is another organisation that offers excellent MMA viewing. Currently, the PFL puts fights across six weight divisions, and fights take place in a ten-sided cage known as the SmartCage.

Although not as high profile as the UFC or the Bellator, the PFL has hosted several impressive fights, enabling fighters like Larissa Pacheco, Olivier Aubin-Mercier, and Rob Wilkinson to establish themselves as household names.

EFC (Extreme Fighting Championship)

Founded in Johannesburg, South Africa, the Extreme Fighting Championship (EFC) is Africa’s biggest MMA organisation, broadcasting in more than 120 countries and holding events in different parts of the world.

The rules of the EFC are based on the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts and follow the same format as UFC bouts. Many EFC Champions hail from the African continent, with the likes of Matunga Dijkasa, Luke Michael, and Ziko Magengele all enjoying recent success in the cage.

KSW (Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki)

Konfrontacja Sztuk Walki - KSW - also known as Martial Arts Confrontation, is the biggest MMA organisation in Poland and one of the largest fighting competitions in continental Europe.

Many KSW champions hail from Eastern Europe, but the organisation also draws fighters from further afield. The likes of Darko Stosic, Ivan Erslan, and Pawel Pawlak have achieved big things in the KSW recently.

At Stake.com , we love Mixed Martial Arts and are huge fans of the UFC, Bellator, PFC, and EFC! MMA has become one of the most popular sports in recent times, and there are so many different types of bets you can place on your favourite bouts and fighters at Stake Sportsbook!
