The UFC has integrated the sport of mixed martial arts well and truly into the mainstream. Canadian Georges St. Pierre will star in one of 11 fights from the sold out spectacular UFC 100 from Las Vegas this weekend. 888sport will have competitive markets on all the fights on the card.
Mixed Martial Arts is the biggest boom sport in the world at the moment and Canadians just can’t get enough. You might lap up the ‘ground and pound’ from the wrestling experts or you might prefer the stand up guys that love to ‘swing for the rails’ whatever your fancy this sport has it all.
This Saturday night the UFC (the world leaders in mixed martial arts) will celebrate UFC 100 at the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas. These are the hottest tickets in town and there are reports that good seats will set you back 10’s of thousands of dollars to secure. If you can’t afford the time to fuel up your helicopter and fly down for the event it’s not the end of the world. You can sit back and watch the fights on the TV and have a bet with 888sport who will give you the best odds in town to help pay for the beer and pizza.
It is a huge card with 11 fights. That’s the great thing about the UFC compared to boxing; all the fights are of interest and worth watching, not just the main event like in boxing where the undercards is a joke.
One of the feature fights sees Canadian Champion Georges St. Pierre take on Thiago Alves. The 2008 Canadian Athlete of the year who stills fights out of Montreal is one of the country’s most exciting exports. 888sport has St. Pierre as a short priced favorite at $1.36 which is still a very competitive price. The great thing about the sport is that you can take a few fighters in a multi bet (or parlay) and end up with a very good price.
888sport has prices for all 11 fights on the card. The most anticipated fight will feature Brock Lesnar ($1.44) taking on Frank Mir ($2.60) in what will be a heavy weight showdown for the ages. “Let’s get it on!”
