Best Answer

In MMA (and other sports) the favored fighter is assigned a negative odds (e.g. -410) by the oddsmakers/bookmakers while the underdog fighter is assigned a positive odds (e.g. +350).

If you take a bet on the favored fighter (with negative odds), betting that number (e.g. ($410) can win you $100 assuming the odds shown above.

If you take a bet on the underdog fighter (with positive odds), betting $100 can win you that number ($350) assuming the odds shown above.

In short, you'll need to put more money down on the favored fighter and less money down on the underdog.
