UFC Best Bets: UFC 266 Picks, Predictions, Odds to Consider on DraftKings Sportsbook for September 25
On Saturday, the UFC will put an outstanding show on for MMA fans around the globe. UFC 266 will feature not one, but two title fights, plus the return of Nick Diaz after a six-year hiatus from the octagon. Diaz’s fight with Robbie Lawler is a rematch that’s been 17 years in the making and to make things even more interesting, it has been exactly 209 months since their first fight. How’s that for fight legacy?

UFC Best Bets: MMA Picks, Predictions, Odds to Consider on DraftKings Sportsbook for September 18
On Saturday, the UFC roars back into action with a jam-packed 15-fight event after last week’s hiatus. UFC Vegas 37 features a battle between No. 6 ranked light heavyweight Anthony Smith and No. 11 ranked Ryan Spann in the headlining spot. The fight is a good litmus test for Spann, who is coming off an impressive TKO win over Misha Cirkunov. Smith, after a few hiccups in 2020, is back on track with a pair of wins, over Devin Clark last November and Jimmy Crute this past April. Smith is the favorite, but Clark certainly has the wherewithal to get his arm raised when it’s all said and done and the fat lady has sung.

The Octagon is back in Texas on August 7 with an interim title on the line. In the main event of UFC 265, Houston’s own Derrick Lewis will take on French striker Ciryl Gane for the interim heavyweight belt, with the winner expected to face champion Francis Ngannou next in a unification bout. The co-main event pits former WEC and UFC featherweight king Jose Aldo against fellow Brazilian Pedro Munhoz in what should be a scintillating bantamweight battle.

2021 UFC Odds and Betting

DraftKings Sportsbook offers the best gaming experience for UFC. The most common UFC bet is the moneyline bet, which is simply choosing who you think will win the fight. UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman has the longest win streak among active UFC fighters, winning 14 consecutive fights, five of which were title fights. Former light heavyweight champion Jon Jones holds the UFC title fight record with 14 title fight wins.

Fight prop bets can be placed on DraftKings Sportsbook based on the winning method. Heavyweight Derrick Lewis has the most wins by KO/TKO at 12, while lightweight Charles Oliveira has the most submission wins among active UFC fighters with 14. Fight prop bets can also be placed based on whether a fight is finished or goes the distance. Charles Oliveira has recorded the most finishes among active UFC fighters with 16, while Diego Sanchez has the most decision wins with 12.

Bets can be placed based on how long a fight goes in terms of rounds. UFC title fights and main events are composed of five five-minute rounds, potentially lasting 25 minutes if the fight goes the distance. Non-title fights that are not featured in the main event are composed of three five-minute rounds, potentially lasting 15 minutes if the fight goes the distance. Former women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk has the longest average UFC fight time at just over 19 minutes per fight, and she has completed a full five rounds in half of her UFC fights. Heavyweight champion and thunderous puncher Francis Ngannou has the shortest average fight time among current champions, clocking in at about five minutes per fight. More than half of Ngannou’s UFC fights have been finished in the first round due to his ferocious punching power.
