I have been hearing rumblings about Zuffa possibly developing a stance somewhat against offshore sportsbooks, so to speak. The first time I saw it in print was on Fightsport webpage. Normally I would not take what they say as reality, but in this case it supports other rumblings I have heard, so I thought I would comment.
Having wagered on boxing and horses for many years, I can't express how much I appreciate the new online sportsbooks. There was a time when I placed wagers on boxing matches through a third part who was stationed in Las Vegas -- You talk about inconvienience. Getting money transfered back-and-forth, placing bets etc. was really inconvienient. Online sportsbooks changed all that.
To keep it sort of short, I am here to say the online sportsbooks INCREASE my interested and enjoyment for the UFC, DRAMATICALLY. I no longer have an option to play UFC or boxing, if it were not for the sportsbooks. There is nothing more convienient than a good online sportsbook to place a wager. Pinnacle, Betoddessa, MVP, TCbets, sportsbook, have great customer service and are first class and much appreciated in my book.
I just wanted to say I am a big supporter of what the online sportsbooks and particularly Joey Oddessa have done to make wagering on UFC and boxing more practical for the bulk of the UFC and boxing fans like myself.
