Major competitions for MMA continue as there are no reports yet of the coronavirus affecting the sports, allowing crypto sports betting sites to accept bets on MMA matches from online sports bettors.
The online sports betting sector sees a decline on the number of bets placed as many professional sports organizations postpone or cancel tournaments, leagues, and matches. But sports bettors may have now found a new venue to place their wagers on – MMA.
MMA remains one of the popular sports across the world, and its promotions are showing no signs of delaying matches and pulling out athletes away from the octagon. In fact, the UFC pushed on with its event in Brazil over the weekend, but without an audience. The match was aired live on ESPN and ESPN+.
UFC President Dana White previously said in an interview that the promotion had decided to continue with its scheduled matches but is considering finding a different venue. No audience will be allowed inside while everyone in the production, including the athletes, will be tested. White said this after US Pres. Donald Trump approved her request.
With the persistence of the promotion as well as of the athletes themselves, online sportsbooks, especially crypto-friendly sports betting sites can now cater to the demands of avid online sports bettors staying indoors.
Crypto casino and sportsbook Playbetr told BestBitcoinCasino.com:
“One of the fastest growing avenues of crypto betting is in the MMA as more people become involved with crypto and more people enjoy the MMA we only see this growing and will be doing a variety of promotions in order to facilitate the growth. The most used crypto on Playbetr is most definitely bitcoin and that is followed by ethereum. If the MMA is able to continue creating stars that resonate with the players, we will see some very solid future growth with MMA and crypto betting at www.Playbetr.com.”
Meanwhile, sports bettors can look forward to UFC in London on March 21, as well as the UFC 249 match set for April 18 featuring the highly anticipated match between Khabib Nurmagomedov (28-0) and Tony Ferguson (25-3).
Bettors can now wager on the outright bets on the future UFC matches. Sports fans, on the other hand, can expect to watch their favorite athletes indulge in esports, especially after getting word that pro football players will join FIFA Esports.
Despite the coronavirus outbreak, however, UFC matches continued on, with the UFC Fight Night featuring Harris vs Overeem happening on May 16. With this, many Bitcoin sports betting sites hope for a return to normality after the coronavirus outbreak.
