Combat sports have always been the king of sports wagering and MMA betting apps represent that well.
We rank some of the most popular MMA betting apps that you can find in the US (be sure to check your state regulations).
Best MMA Betting Apps
The top MMA apps that allow you to bet on the UFC and even Bellator are:

FanDuel Sportsbook MMA Review
Like DraftKings, FanDuel has successfully made the transition from a daily fantasy sports leader to a fully functioning sportsbook. And that carries over into its ranking as an MMA betting app.
The FanDuel app is nimble and responsive, and that makes it the perfect app for in-play wagering on MMA fights. You also get a full slate of options to go along with the fight line and round totals bets. It has method of victory props that include KO/TKO, decision on points, submission, or draw.
You can bet round props, tying either fighter to a win in that specific round. Or the round with no fighter. Plus, there are time props that involve picking yes or no on fight distance, and if the fight will start the second round, third round, etc.
FanDuel also offers up to a $500 risk-free bet for new customers, which means that if your first bet ends up losing, the value of the bet up to $500 will be placed back in your account as betting credit.

Live Betting Markets
iOS & Android
Sign up at FanDuel Sportsbook and opt-in for a Risk-Free Bet. If your first bet loses, get refunded up to $500 in site credits. Register anywhere in the US, but you can only bet from CO, IN, NJ, PA, & WV. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800-Gambler.
One downside to FanDuel is that only UFC bets are offered. So if Bellator or Cage Warrior is what you’re looking for, you won’t find it here.
Even so, FanDuel’s speed, UFC options, and general ease of use make it a great MMA betting app, and we rank it No. 1.
BetRivers MMA Review
The BetRivers app is not available for IOS download, which is a big negative. You can work around that by downloading a location validation app, which then allows iPhone users to log in to the BetRivers mobile site, but it’s far from a perfect solution.
Fortunately for BetRivers, as an MMA betting app, it does make up for some of that with good offerings. It only has UFC matches on its board, but it has in-play wagering on those matches. That is a big addition, and it makes BetRivers better than many of the other apps.
It is also powered by Kambi, one of the biggest tech giants in the industry, and one of the reasons in-play wagering is possible.
Multiple MMA Markets
Use on-site code to get up to $250 bonus cash on your first deposit from Pennsylvania. Please read the offer terms in full. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem and wants help, call 1-800-GAMBLER.
BetRivers is also a part of the Rush Street Interactive group, which manages sportsbooks and casinos across the country. That gives players access to the iRush Rewards Program and the free goodies you can get through it.
Overall, the BetRivers app is more than serviceable. But when looking for an MMA betting app, it just rates as average. That’s why we rank it No. 2.
Bet365 MMA Review
Bet365 has a nice tone to its app and offers color icons to choose from, which makes it very easy on your eyes if you’re going to spend a lot of time staring at a screen. That is a plus in its favor.
But the icon you’ll choose is a combined boxing/MMA icon, which immediately makes one suspicious that its MMA offerings are going to be limited. And sadly, they are.
Only UFC fights are offered. So if you want to bet on some of the smaller MMA leagues, you won’t be able to here. But worse than that, you can only bet the moneyline. There are no options for rounds, methods of victory, or any of the propositions you can find on other apps.
It does have all the UFC fights on the board, and some as far as three months out. But it doesn’t have in-play wagering on UFC or any other combat sport.
Best Online Sportsbook in the World
Open Account Offer
Up to $100 in Bet Credits for new customers at bet365. Make a qualifying deposit (min $10), place bets to deposit value, once they are settled, matched amount in Bet Credits available to use. Bet Credits risk excluded from returns. T&Cs apply.
And as an app that brags about its streaming services – and they are impressive – it can’t stream UFC, so it doesn’t improve its standing as an MMA betting app.
Too few options have us ranking Bet365 at No. 3.
BetMGM MMA Review
BetMGM is yet another MMA betting app that only offers UFC matches. And along with no other offered leagues, there are no allowed wagers other than the fight line. And when you consider what else is out there, this is disappointing from a name with a great reputation like MGM’s.
BetMGM does have a risk-free bet offer for new customers that will give them betting credit of up to $500 if their first-ever bet loses. You can also get a free $10 bet every week and what is called a Power Parlay, which awards points for every parlay (two legs or more) that you win or lose, with the leader in points at the end of the month winning $3,000.
The app itself is noticeably slower than others, which may be why it doesn’t offer in-play wagering. But that will also make it harder for it to offer in-play wagering in the future.
Sign up and opt-in to for a risk-free bet up to $500 if your first bet loses. Offer expires 12.31.2019; new customers only. Please read the full offer terms. If you or someone you know has a gambling problem, call 1-800-GAMBLER
Too few options and an overall sense that BetMGM is behind the curve on the popularity of the sport and providing MMA betting options has us ranking it No. 4.
