For all intents and purposes, the UFC has officially arrived in the mainstream. With a pay-per-view or ESPN+ fight on the schedule almost every week of the year, more eyeballs than ever have been on the UFC, and sportsbooks have reacted accordingly.

In addition to the traditional money line market, there are many UFC prop betting markets to choose from, one being UFC method and round combos. Let’s take a closer look at what’s involved and some strategies for getting in on the action.

What is a UFC Method and Round Combos bet?

UFC Method and Round Combos betting combines two UFC prop betting markets, with the possibility of high payouts for those lucky enough to cash out. First, the bettor must choose which fighter will win the fight. Next, the bettor must choose the correct method of victory in fights, the options being KO/TKO, submission and decision. Finally, the bettor must also choose in which turn the fight will end.

For example, consider the upcoming featherweight title fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Max Holloway. If a bettor picked Volkanovski by first-round submission and Volkanovski got a first-round submission, the bettor would win their bet. Any other result and the bettor loses his bet.

As you would expect, this correct prediction has much higher payouts than standard money line or total spin bets, with payouts of up to +3000 for calling the exact outcome.

Strategy for making bets on the UFC method and round combos

While fight history, looking specifically at a fighter’s propensity to end a fight in the first round (the most common), is the easiest way to do a UFC method and round combo bet, the combat measures must also be taken into account.

For example, fighters in the top percentiles for big strikes landed every 15 minutes and accuracy of big strikes are more likely to end the fight via KO/TKO, taking care of the method part of the bet. When it comes to submissions, fighters who excel in average takedowns per 15 minutes, takedown accuracy, and average submissions per 15 minutes, especially against a fighter struggling on the ground, are more likely to put end the fight by submission.

Regardless of how much research and preparation you do for the UFC method and combination round bets, they are often more luck than anything else, like betting an exacta in horse racing betting a single game in basketball -ball NBA.
