Does anyone bet on MMA?

Not sure if anyone bets here, but I think it's the most fun sort of betting out there to be honest. I could bet on a football match, but sometimes you know the outcome to that.

With MMA, you can ALWAYS be shocked. Who else bets here?

Who have you got for GSP VS Jake Shields

Jake Shields is 10/3 on Sky be and to be honest I think that's quite a nice bet.

Still not particulary sure what what the +100 thing is with Bodog, but I'll figure it out. Plus, I leave that to our US editor

I use to bet with bookies and still do with friends. Back then (even a couple of years ago) I'd probably get most of the picks correct if not all of em. These days I'd be lucky to be even. It's super tricky. The favorites are like -200 on up which isn't really worth it. The last time I really scored big was with Vitor Belfort at +140 against Rich Franklin. Doubt there will be another steal again anytime soon. Actually there might be. Griffin vs Shogun two. I'm praying that the bookies put Griffin as the major favorite.

I like the enhanced multiple bets that they have.

Shields, Machida,Hominick and Bocek all to win 45/1 is a nice little wager if I do say so myself. It's cheap and you could win pretty big on it

Well I was betting on skybet couple of months ago. But I bet on Fedor against Big Foot who decides to lose and Rich Franklin against Forrest. So it's risky stuff and easy to lose.

There's a reason you're getting 45:1 odds on that bet... the probabilities of all 4 of those plays hitting is looooooooooow. Both Hominick AND Shields?!

To explain American odds: Anything with a minus sign (-) in front means the payout is less than 1:1. Anything with a (+) sign is greater. The three digit number after the sign denotes the ratio won/paid. For example GSP is around -500 against Jake Shields +300, so to win $100 on GSP you must risk $500, and if you bet $100 on Shields, you win $300. Think of them as ratios. I think the fractional system is better, but whatevs.

Also, I highly recommend not betting on 4-line parlays like the one listed (especially with two huge dogs). With each added line to the parlay your payout gets worse relative to the odds.

The best way to bet on any sport is to be highly selective IMO. Like the guy above said with the Vitor Belfort thing. The oddsmakers are VERY good at what they do.

Same here cause nothing is absolute in this field. Even though the odds are probably with GSP, I want Shields to win. But that is just me.
