As the UFC continues to grow in popularity, it's quickly becoming one of the more popular sporting events to bet on as well. Over the last few years there has been an increase in demand for betting sites to include every UFC event, and even some of the smaller venues like StrikeForce and WEC. Some sites will have you bet for fun, while others allow you to put real money down and offer betting odds. There are also in-betweens that you don't have to put any real money down, but you could win real money or other prizes.

If you're looking for ways to bet on UFC events, read on. This article will give you a few options to get you started. Good luck and have fun!

Register For Free Fantasy MMA

This site is great for newbies or those who just don't want to throw down any money of their own. Just register a free account at www.mmaplayground.com and start making bets and wagers on upcoming UFC fights. They give you fake money but they give real cash prizes for the best bettors. It's really popular, really fun, and extremely addicting. There's even a forum to discuss fight predictions. After you register, take a few minutes to find a team, or "camp", that way you guys can give each other advice on who to bet on. It pretty much is just what the URL implies, an MMA Playground. Check it out, it's hard not to like it.

Visit Real Betting Sites

If you're looking to make some good old fashioned real bets, there's quite a few sites out there that could fit your needs. These sites require you to bet your own real money so you can win real money. Just do a quick search for the most popular sports betting sites and chances are the top results will have MMA betting included.

One thing to keep in mind though is that betting is not legal everywhere. Make sure online betting is legal where you live before joining their sites.

Start A Pool With Friends And Co-Workers

This is always fun, as long as you have enough people in your area that watch UFC events. Just start a pool and have everyone throw a few bucks into the pot and whoever gets the most fights correct wins the pot. You can even have people pick which round the fight ends or how it ends to make sure you don't have more than one winner at a time. This is always fun but sometimes you just can't find enough people that watch UFC to join in.

The UFC is fun enough to watch as it is, but when you start getting more involved in the fighters and start feeling the urge to bet on them, it becomes a whole lot more enjoyable. Betting on UFC events can be extremely addicting since the UFC holds events year round and at least once a month, that's why I prefer the fantasy MMA...you never have to worry about running your bank account dry.
