Nowadays, betting on MMA is so popular. Fight betting is as old as the fighting itself. It has been done for hundreds, if not thousands, of years in every corner of the world.
The tension of two fighters fighting each other is never boring. Where combat betting started with ancient cultures and civilisations, it has now evolved, as have the battles themselves. Traditionally it was still life and death battles; now you can speak of a real martial art.
Betting on MMA is exciting, more exciting than betting on an earlier game. The most exciting aspect of betting, of course, is to see if you are proven right.
Are you really the expert you think you are? You used to get that answer in seconds. When two gladiators fought each other with a spear, the chances of the fight going on for a long time were not that great. Of course there was that one moment of tension: who is going to win? But that tension did not last long.
Every fight in MMA is completely different. Because there are so many different styles and athletes with such different skills and physical characteristics, it is much more common that you are treated to a true “upset”: an emerging talent that dethrones a renowned champion. No one is sure of the throne in MMA. It is a constant battle for dominance, with fighters constantly alternating and often a real shock.
Who doesn’t know Conor McGregor? The flamboyant Irishman with the nickname “Notorious” seemed to dominate in his weight class. In fact, he is so good that he is able to make the temporary switch to a different weight class and also win the title. The whole world is sure: he would dominate for a long time.
And then there is the hypothermic Russian Khabib Nurmagomedov, who showed that he knew McGregor’s weaknesses, mercilessly attacked him and shattered the legend that was forming around the Irishman. That’s the beauty of MMA. With every fight you are on the edge of your seat. Great champions can be knocked out in a round KO by relatively unknown fighters.
