How Odds Work

Unlike a spread on an NFL game where one team is ahead by a certain number 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:

BRIAN ORTEGA    +158    
CHAN SUNG JUNG    -208 

In this fight, TKZ is the -208 favorite, meaning if you bet $208 on him and he wins, you would profit $100. If he were to lose though, you would lose the full $208.

If you were to bet on Ortega at +158, if you bet $100 on him and he wins the fight, you will profit $158. If he were to lose the fight, you would lose your original $100 bet.

Depending on how people are betting on the fights, the odds can 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.

Has there ever been a card where all the dogs win?

Good question. I remember all but one two. But a clean sweep, not that I recall.
