This type of MMA betting only requires that your chosen fighter win. Everyone has a favorite it takes a match bet for you to bet for your fighter and wait for the win. The only disadvantages are that the favorites are always awarded lesser odds which may discourage you as a bettor.
This type of MMA betting involves a wide selection whereas a bettor you get to bet for a series of fights which accumulates your odds for a better win. Selecting a bunch of favorite fighters stretches your odds and helps you increase your payout. In order for you to win your fighters must all win in order for you to get your payout.

The best way to go about this option is to try out the doubles as a way to try and mitigate your loss before going for the 3 or more options. And since parlay pays much more you can play with a much smaller stake.
