The vast majority of bookies online allow customers to bet on MMA/UFC and so those looking to place a bet have the choice of dozens of betting sites. However, it’s important not to just bet with a random choice of bookie as they can offer different odds which affect your returns should your bets win. Some bookmakers are also more reputable than others and so it’s always a good idea to do your research on the bookie and check that they have positive reviews and hold a UK license before registering an account. By holding a license with the UK Gambling Commission, it gives more reassurance that the bookie is operating above board and bets are settled fairly.
Below, we’ve listed the top 5 betting sites for betting on MMA. We took various factors into account when deciding on the best bookies such as the odds that they offer, the number of MMA betting markets that are available with them, their signup offers for new customers, and their overall reputation.
Bet365 is one of the biggest and most popular bookmakers in the world and offers customers odds on over 30 different sports, including MMA. They’re known for offering great odds on a variety of sports meaning that you can be confident that you’re getting value when placing your bets with them. Bet365 also offer a large number of MMA betting markets with some of the most popular options being:
- The winner of the fight
- Round betting
- Total Rounds
- How the fight will be decided
- Fight to go the distance
One of the main attractions to Bet365 initially is their sign-up offer which is one of the best available from any of the top bookies. New customers can receive up to £100 in bet credits when making their first deposit which allows you to place more bets and be in with a greater chance of landing some winners and making a profit.
2. Paddy Power

They have a huge online presence as well as running quirky television adverts and are a well-known betting brand in the UK and across Europe. They’re associated with Betfair who are another huge betting brand and both offer betting on all the top MMA fights throughout the year.
One great thing about Paddy Power is that they have so many betting offers available throughout the week. Free bets, refunds and price boosts are all common at Paddy and a great reason to have an account and bet with them.

As well as a sportsbook, Betfair also operates the largest online betting exchange. You can often get even better odds on the Betfair Exchange and have the option to place both back and lay bets. The exchange is for slightly more experienced bettors but a great option to have if you’re looking for even more value from your MMA bets.
Unibet is a very popular bookmaker in the UK and Sweden where it originated from. The main reason Unibet makes the top 5 list is because of the excellent odds that they offer.
