Best Pound-For-Pound (P4P) Fighters in the UFC in 2019

    The Ultimate Fighting Champions or UFC for short is the most popular mixed martial arts promotion. Based in Nevada, UFC’s PPV fights have brought in millions of fans around the globe. It wasn’t always like that. At the beginning of the 2000s, UFC struggled to survive and was as far away from a burgeoning sport as possible.

    Everything changed in the early 2000s. Zuffa bought the rights to UFC for $2 million and the rest, as they say, is history. Since the acquisition, the UFC slowly rose up the ranks of popularity, in no large part due to Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock’s involvement. The legendary fighter was instrumental into turning the UFC to a mainstream sport that has the best fighters.

    Apart from being popular on TV, UFC betting has also exploded in recent years. Thanks to mouth-watering fights between legends such as Conor McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov or heavy hitters such as Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier, UFC is among the most popular sports at bookies. Fans of the sport can enjoy great odds on all the exciting fights to win money! You can always go online on your PC or mobile phone and find the bet that suits you at Sports Interaction.
