As with boxing, UFC is divided into different classes of weights. It's essential to understand these weight classes and which fighters are competing in them before you start betting on UFC.
Weight classes exist to level the playing field between fighters, and for the fighters' safety. Battle within a weight class ensures a fair fight is expected (in physical terms at least), and the winner would be decided by the fighter's talent as opposed to any major physical size advantage.
Keeping an eye on weight classes is essential to maximising your betting profits. You should be aware of it if a fighter switches to a new class to fight his next opponent. You should know which combat styles are most common in each class, and the most common grounds for stopping.
