Where to bet on MMA and UFC fights in Canada

Canada meet MMA, MMA meet Canada

Mixed martial arts events, the Ultimate Fighting Challenge and Strikeforce are fast becoming the most bet-on sports events in the world. However, Canadian MMA fans face two big barriers to sharing the fun:

  • An unfamiliar bettting system
  • American betting sites that don’t let Canadians play

This site will help get you over both these hurdles.

MMA Betting in Canada

You may have already tried placing bets on MMA sites only to be told that only folks in the U.S. can bet.

Once you’re done swearing about how unfair this is, listen up: you’re not out of the game yet. A small handful of wagering sites sites are not only open to Canadians, they rely on us and allow us to thrive.

  • The minimum bet at Pinnacle Sports is $1 USD or the equivalent in your local currency. Unlike the standard minimum wager limit, the maximum limit per bet may vary depending on the particular sport, type of bet offered and the time relative to the start of the event. In general, the limits will typically increase closer to the start of the event with the highest maximum limits available on the day of the event.

On top of this, Pinnacle does not accept US clients, so your account is treated with much more of a personal touch. I highly recommend checking them out, taking a look at their odds and judging for yourself.
