How to use your smartphone to gamble on UFC

UFC continues to grow in popularity across Africa, with several stars of Mixed Martial Arts born in the continent. Kamaru Usman is hot property at the minute and the Nigerian ace is making as many headlines for a raging battle outside of the octagon as he does for his devastating form inside it.

Hard-hitting Usman from Auchi is the reigning UFC welterweight champion having blasted his way to the top of the division. The 33-year-old dubbed The Nigerian Nightmare continues to dominate opponents and earn rave reviews, but he now appears to have his sights set on the most famous UFC star of them all – Ireland’s Conor McGregor. The leading UFC betting sites are already offering odds on the winner of that clash.

The bout is, at present, nothing more than a rumour but both fighters seem to be keen on taking their war of words into the octagon and settling the score. If they do, you can bet on the winner using your smartphone. This article explains how.
