The most popular martial arts sport in the world is undoubtedly boxing. Even people who have little interest in the sport of boxing will be aware of who legends such as Mohammed Ali and Mike Tyson are and that’s a testament to the relevance boxing has had for such a long time in countries like the UK, USA and all over the planet. Over the last decade MMA, specifically the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), has seen unprecedented growth in popularity and as such it has become just as prevalent in the sports betting world as boxing.

Boxing betting & odds
Pugilism, or boxing as it is more commonly referred to, is a combat sport that has an extremely long history. Stretching back thousands of years, boxing could easily be considered the oldest sport in the world. However, the more modern, codified version of the sport of boxing originated in late 19th century England with the introduction of the Queensbury rules. This helped to develop boxing from an illegal, underground activity into a genuine professional sport.
For purists, boxing is considered to be an art form and is something that needs to be studied and understood before one can truly compete at the highest level. Some of the most notable professional boxers of the 20th century were:
And George Foreman.
These men, and many more, were responsible for the exponential growth of professional boxing and the interest in boxing betting as a result. At Novibet, you can place a bet on any upcoming fight on many markets including; fight result (either fighter to win, or a draw), round betting (which round a certain fighter will win in), method of victory (how a fighter will win e.g. KO, TKO, Disqualification) and many more.
UFC betting & odds
The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was founded in 1993 to promote mixed martial arts (MMA) bouts. After a humble beginning throughout the 1990s, arguably the most significant development in UFC’s history has been Dana White being made President in 2001. Under White’s stewardship, the UFC has grown into a multi-billion dollar enterprise, with pay-per-view figures that match even the biggest boxing match ups. Since 1993, there have been over 500 UFC events.
Despite growing in popularity throughout the 2000s, something was still missing from the UFC. In 2013, the UFC signed a relatively unknown Irish martial artist named Conor McGregor to a multi-fight contract and this changed the face of the sport forever. McGregor was a PR machine and drew in record levels of pay-per-view figures for the sport, so much so that he has been involved in five of the top six all time highest earning fights based on pay-per-view and purse figures. He also made history by becoming the first UFC fighter to hold titles in multiple weight divisions, truly cementing his status as a UFC legend.
Some of the other UFC champions from the past that have had a significant impact on the growth of mixed martial arts are:
And Tito Ortiz
At Novibet, you’ll find a whole host of UFC martial arts betting markets to choose from including fight result (either fighter to win, or a draw), round betting (which fighter will win in what round), method of victory (KO, TKO, submission, or disqualification) and many more.
