UFC Fights to Bet on in March 2021

I can’t read minds, but you’re probably here because you want to know when the next top UFC fight to bet on is.

Well, let’s just say that you are going to be psyched when you find out what I have in store for you.

To give you the answer to the question, you have probably come here to find out — the next big UFC fight to bet on is in March. And it’s a big one, as it could mean history for Israel Adesanya against Jan Blachowicz at light heavyweight.

If you’re only wagering on the best UFC fights in March, you’re going to be even more excited to learn that there are five championships on the line in total. Not only do we have Adesanya vs. Blachowicz, but Stipe vs. Ngannou 2 happens in March, too. As does the return of Amanda Nunes.

That’s enough for the spoilers. Let’s get down to business with the best fights to bet on in the UFC in March 2021.

Jan Blachowicz vs. Israel Adesanya

  • When: UFC 259 – March 6
  • Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Title: UFC Light Heavyweight 

What a fight this should be.

Blachowicz vs. Adesanya is probably the one that bettors are most looking forward to gambling on in March, even if Adesanya is a firm favorite to win.

This one has all the ingredients to be a classic, with Blachowicz’s “Polish Power” and Adesanya’s incredible technical brilliance set to clash at UFC 259 on March 6.

If you’re not familiar with The Last Stylebender, I suggest reading my piece on the strengths and weaknesses of Adesanya. That should give you an idea of what you can expect from the current middleweight champion.

I will provide you with my prediction and betting pick for Blachowicz vs. Adesanya a little later. So if you’re looking to win money betting on the UFC fights in March, that is a must-read.

I’ll be providing other gambling tips for UFC fights in March, such as a betting preview for Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson, too.

Speaking of great fights to bet on in the month, this next one is not to be missed.

Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson

  • When: UFC 259 – March 6
  • Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Title: UFC Women’s Featherweight

My Nunes vs. Anderson betting pick and predictions piece goes in hard on this UFC 259 co-main event.

You can find the odds and the best bets for the fight, which I believe to be something of a mismatch. But identifying a mismatch can often be a good way to make money wagering on UFC bouts, so don’t feel too disheartened yet.

Nunes is an incredible fighter. In fact, she is up there with the best in the game right now. As such, it’s hard to see how Anderson can beat her.

It’s not impossible, of course, but it would take something very special. Or very, very flukey.

If you are looking to bet on UFC fights in March, don’t forget about this one.

Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling

  • When: UFC 259 – March 6
  • Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Title: UFC Bantamweight

I simply cannot wait to watch this bantamweight title fight.

So much so that I would advise instantly grabbing a calendar and circling the date for Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling. Yes, it sucked when it was called off last year, but it will go ahead this time. Trust me.

It’s guaranteed to be one of the best bouts of the month and definitely, one of the top UFC fights to bet on in March 2021.

Like Adesanya, you can read up on the strengths and weaknesses of Petr Yan to help you wager on the fight. I also have a Yan vs. Sterling odds and analysis piece to help you get the most out of your bets on this one, and you can find that at the bottom of this page.

Is Yan vs. Sterling the best fight to bet on in March? It’s up there, alright. I’ll say that it is probably the toughest one to call, and I’m sure I am not the only one thinking that way.

The lineup for UFC 259 is ridiculous. The card still has fights to be added, but it’s incredible already.

Take a look.

Initial UFC 259 Lineup
Fight Type of Fight Division
Jan Blachowicz vs. Israel Adesanya Title Fight Light Heavyweight
Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson Title Fight Women’s Featherweight
Petr Yan vs. Aljamain Sterling Title Fight Bantamweight
Aleksandar Rakic vs. Thiago Santos Non-title Fight Light Heavyweight
Song Yadong vs. Kyler Phillips Non-title Fight Bantamweight
Kennedy Nzechukwu vs. Carlos Ulberg Non-title Fight Light Heavyweight
Sean Brady vs. Jake Matthews Non-title Fight Welterweight
Rogerio Bontorin vs. Kai Kara-France Non-title Fight Flyweight

 Leon Edwards vs. Belal Muhammad

  • When: UFC Fight Night: Edwards vs. Muhammad – March 13
  • Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Title: N/A

There will be no title on the line when England’s Leon Edwards takes on Belal Muhammad on March 13.

But this fight promises to be action-packed from start to finish, regardless.

Edwards should be in for a shot at Kamaru Usman if he can get past Muhammad.

Currently ranked #3 in the official UFC welterweight rankings, the Birmingham scrapper would love nothing more than a rematch with the man who beat him back in December 2015.

Can Muhammad put a dent in his title aspirations? He’s capable of causing an upset, sure, which makes this one of the top fights to bet on in the UFC in March.

Trevin Giles vs. Dricus du Plessis

  • When: UFC Fight Night: Brunson vs. Holland – March 20
  • Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Title: N/A

Of all the UFC fights in March, this is the one that everyone seems to be snoozing on.

Personally, I think it’s going to be absolute mayhem, which is why I have tipped Trevin Giles vs. Dricus du Plessis to be one of the best UFC fights to bet on this March.

Both Giles and du Plessis love war, so expect frantic exchanges in the center of the Octagon with both men giving all they have.

Whether you are betting on Giles or du Plessis, some of the best bets for UFC fights in March will be found in the markets for this fight.

I’m expecting Mayhem.

Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou

  • When: UFC 260 – Mar 27, 2021
  • Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Title: UFC Heavyweight

What can I say about this one?

There are no words that will do it justice, so I’ll keep it short.

If you are betting on UFC fights in March, don’t miss Stipe vs. Ngannou 2. It’s arguably the biggest rematch in the history of the heavyweight division.

It’s going to be war. And one of these legends will emerge from it as an even bigger star.

Will Ngannou be humbled again?

Alexander Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega

  • When: UFC 260 – Mar 27, 2021
  • Where: UFC APEX, Las Vegas
  • Title: UFC Featherweight

Finally, Volkanovski vs. Ortega at UFC 260 should be very interesting.

The Aussie is the current featherweight champion of the promotion, having edged past Max Holloway in July 2020. In controversial circumstances, I should add.

Ortega’s last fight was a hugely impressive win over The Korean Zombie. He is of absolute quality and possesses one of the most dangerous submission games in the UFC.

Here’s a quick look at Ortega’s finishes in MMA.

Opponent Method of Victory Record After Fight
Frankie Edgar KO (punch) 14–0 (1)
Cub Swanson Submission (guillotine choke) 13–0 (1)
Renato Moicano Submission (guillotine choke) 12–0 (1)
Clay Guida KO (knee) 11–0 (1)
Diego Brandao Submission (triangle choke) 10–0 (1)
Thiago Tavares TKO (punches) 9–0 (1)
Jordan Rinaldi Submission (triangle choke) 7–0
Thomas Guimond Submission (triangle choke) 6–0
Vincent Martinez Submission (rear-naked choke) 3–0
John Sassone Submission (triangle choke) 1–0

As a spectacle, this should be a great one to watch. Betting fans will be happy to learn that it is also one of the top UFC fights to bet on in March.

I’ll be providing my pick for Volkanovski vs. Ortega a little closer to the fight. The same goes for some of the other bouts above.

But I do have some other stuff to share with you. So keep reading if you want more advice for betting on UFC fights in March.
