Bodog: UFC Wagering To Eclipse Boxing By Years End

Here is some clips from a Bodog press release:

UFC, a mixed martial arts fighting league which has gained considerable attention among gamblers in the past 12 months, is now poised to overtake boxing in terms of online betting revenues, according to Online Sportsbook Bodog.com

“The handle on mixed martial arts has been steadily growing over the past 2 years. 2007 will mark the first year that MMA handle will surpass boxing,” says Bodog.com’s sportsbook manager. He also stated that in terms of betting handle, there’s a larger amount of bettors when big name fighters are involved in the UFC event. “The Jackson vs. Liddell main event accounted for two thirds of the entire handle for UFC 71, whereas Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz was responsible for only a third of the UFC 73 handle, with the Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira fight and the other title fights combining for another 50%.”

  2. Not sure but I want to know too. I'll find out and keep you posted.

  3. sportsbet.com seems like a popular one. I don't know if it is good or not. Someone on here has to be a betting man.
