Unlike a spread on an NFL game where one team is getting a certain amount of points (ex. Saints +7), in MMA fights the line on the game is called a moneyline. These are the +/- used on UFC broadcasts. The figure is how much money you have to bet in order to win $100 (-), and how much a $100 bet will earn (+). They are perhaps best explained via example:

SIJARA EUBANKS +215
ASPEN LADD -295

In this fight, Ladd is the -295 favorite, meaning if you bet $295 on her and she wins, you would only profit $100. If she were to lose though, you would lose the full $150.

If you were to bet on Sarj at +215, if you bet $100 on her and she wins the fight, you will profit $215. Ifs he were to lose the fight, you would lose your original $100 bet.

Depending on how people are betting on the fights the odds will shift from the moment they open, right up until the night of the fights.

The sport is built on moments that make you involuntary think “HOLY F***ING S***!!!” Those can come at any time, on any portion of the card, from any fighter. Thus, some bettors look to the underdogs, sometimes big ones, as the best bets. And they say never bet until the weigh-ins.
