If you’re looking to bet on MMA in Ireland, make sure to head to Paddy Power, where you’ll find a massive list of great wagering options.
Ever since Conor McGregor burst onto the UFC scene, Ireland has been thought of as one of the top MMA nations in Europe. Many fighters from the Emerald Isle have now competed in the UFC, and numerous top prospects are battling for their shot to make it into the big leagues.
For those that want to bet on MMA in Ireland, the best site you can access is Paddy Power. This popular online sports betting site offers a massive list of different betting options, and sets some of the best odds to make money. Let’s take a look at a few fights you can bet on in 2017.
Bet on Conor McGregor’s next fight
No one seems to know what exactly is next for Conor McGregor. The mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather and him is still in the negotiation stage, and it’s unclear when, or even if the bout will actually take place.
The good news for MMA fans in Ireland is that there are a number of fantastic options for McGregor to take inside the UFC. The most logical option would be for Conor to defend his lightweight title against the number-one contender. Who that is right now is a constant debate. Khabib Nurmagomedov is certainly a top choice, as he’s won 24 straight fights including 8 straight inside the UFC. Paddy Power has already set the odds for this potential bout, and both fighters enter even at 9/10.
Another possibility is for Conor McGregor to take on his rival Nate Diaz, who he’s already fought on two occasions. Nate made Irish gambling news back in March of 2016 by winning the first fight, but Conor managed to come back and took the second. Somewhat surprisingly, most online sportsbooks in Ireland list McGregor as the favorite heading into the rubber match with odds of 2/5. If you want to bet on MMA in Ireland, wagering on Nate Diaz might be your best option, as he has some great odds to cash out at 7/4.
Bet on Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones
The massive grudge match between Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones has finally been scheduled, and those looking to bet on MMA in Ireland can already wager on who comes out on top. These two men have been scheduled in their rematch a number of times over the past 21 months, but it seems like now we will actually get to see them face off again.
Fights to bet on in 2017
- Daniel Cormier: 8/4 vs. Jon Jones: 8/15
- Jose Aldo: 8/11 vs. Max Holloway: 11/10
- Conor McGregor: 9/10 vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov: 9/10
Since losing to Jon Jones in January of 2015, Daniel Cormier has looked absolutely phenomenal. He won the title against Anthony Johnson first, and has since defeated Alexander Gustafsson, Anderson Silva, and Anthony Johnson once again. ‘DC’ was handily beaten in their first matchup, and as a result is the MMA betting underdog heading into this fight with odds of 6/4.
Jon Jones is arguably the greatest fighter of all time, but troubles outside the octagon has kept him from competing over the past two years. His lone fight since beating Cormier came in April of 2016, where he won a somewhat uneventful decision over Ovince St. Preux. Nevertheless, Jones has looked virtually unbeatable in the UFC, and is the betting favorite according to Paddy Power with odds of 8/15.
