One of the biggest draws of UFC worldwide has been the betting action and with legal online sports betting coming to many states across America the action has never been bigger. UFC has fully embraced the trend, showing live betting odds for all fighters during their broadcasts, and virtually every sportsbook lets you bet on every fight right up until the closing bell.
