With four UFC champions now hailing from Europe, it’s safe to say the popularity of MMA has never been higher. While Germany has yet to produce any champions, a number of top fighters are beginning to emerge from here.
German MMA fans have some great fights to look forward to in the near future, and the best site to bet on the matches is VBet Sportsbook. Let’s take a look at some of the biggest fights you can bet on right now.

We recently wrote an article about the upcoming matchup between Max Holloway and Jose Aldo. This featherweight title unification bout is one of the most anticipated of the year, and even the most experienced MMA betting experts are having a tough time predicting the winner.
VBet Sportsbook 2017 MMA odds
- Jose Aldo (1.67) vs. Max Holloway (2.07)
- Cody Garbrandt (1.67) vs. TJ Dillashaw (2.07)
- Michael Bisping (2.20) vs. George St. Pierre (1.67)
Why is this one of the best options to bet on MMA in Germany? First, it’s expected to be a fantastic fight. Both men are extremely skilled strikers with dangerous submission skills. Secondly, the odds here offer some great chances to cash out.
Most online sportsbooks in Germany agree that Jose Aldo is the betting favorite heading into the fight. He was the UFC featherweight champ from 2011 to 2015, and regained the belt with an impressive victory over Frankie Edgar. Aldo’s odds to win are set at 1.67. Max Holloway is riding a 10-fight win streak, most recently capturing the interim belt with a TKO victory over Anthony Pettis. Vbet Sportsbook lists Holloway’s odds to beat Aldo at 2.07.
Bet on Cody Garbrandt vs. TJ Dillashaw
In July, two of the best bantamweights in the world will face off. Former training partners and now-rivals Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw have wrapped up filming the Ultimate Fighter, and anticipation for their eventual showdown is at an all time high.
Cody Garbrandt shocked the world this past December with an upset victory over longtime champ Dominick Cruz to capture the title. Cody is one of the best boxers below 135 pounds, and has been rounding out his wresting game while working with Urijah Faber over the past several years. At the moment, he’s the MMA betting favorite with odds of 1.67.
TJ Dillashaw was a champion himself for a number of years. Since losing the belt via a controversial decision to Cruz, he’s won two straight fights in dominant fashion. TJ has an extremely well-rounded game and has told the media he used to get the better of Cody while they were training partners. Nevertheless, he’s the underdog here with odds of 2.07.
Bet on Michael Bisping vs. George St. Pierre
If you want to bet on MMA in Germany, this fight is one of your best options. After nearly 4 years outside the sport, George St. Pierre made German gambling news by announcing his intention to return to the cage. In March, Dana White confirmed that GSP is returning and will take on current middleweight champ Michael Bisping in his first fight back.
On paper, Michael Bisping has all the tools to beat GSP. He’s bigger, stronger, and has been much more active over the past few years. Nevertheless, he’s entering this fight as the underdog according to VBet Sportsbook with odds of 2.20.
George St. Pierre is without a doubt one of the best fighters of all time, but is competing above 170 pounds for the first time in his career here. Speculation is high over how GSP will look in his return, although he has reportedly been training hard in his time away from competing. St. Pierre is coming in as the favorite at 1.67.
If you want to bet on MMA in Germany, all three of these fights are offering some incredible odds. Head to VBet Sportsbook to find a full list of 2017 MMA betting odds, and tell us who you think wins the fights we listed in the comment section below!
