    I hope I'm not breaking any rules here, but I want to place bets on fights but I have no clue where to start. I tried draft kings but it's an odd format. You can pick winners and still end up losing.

    Where do you guys place bets?

    5Dimes.eu

    I've used many sportsbooks this is by far one of the most user friendly. Also the best when it comes to payouts and receiving your winnings.

    Just a quick heads up. If you're an inexperienced sports bettor I'd start with another sport besides MMA. Very difficult to win consistently. If you insist then start small and build your bankroll.

    There is definitive value in some MMA betting, always be aware of the live dog, beware the heavy favorite. Good luck.

    I tried to make bets on that website but I had deposit issues... Is it necessary to fill out a form (with identification pictures and everything) or just credit card informations would be enough?

    You can bet from the US, but forewarning you it is not legal. That being said there are estimated millions of Americans betting online anyway, so you should be a okay.

    You can bet on any one event. But let me save you the trouble and tears. If you want to bet on Nate, just PayPal me your money instead.

    You shouldn't have to submit that information for deposit. Credit card should be fine. You do have t make sure your credit card is for international use. A lot of cards today are not due to fraud. So that may have been your issue.

    In terms of collecting your winnings, yes. I submitted a photocopy of my drivers license to confirm identity and address. Have never had a single issue with withdrawal of my winnings.

    The good thing with 5Dimes is the lack of bs. A lot of other books will try and send you your winnings by check which can take several weeks. With 5Dimes they can wire you the money via MoneyGram. Most times you can get it within 24 hours, 48 tops :)

    I'm betting for the odds. I PayPal you and there's no chance of me winning money back. I picked holly and I never bet. Now I kick myself. I gotta play these odds.

    Yeah I was just goofin man. I kick myself for not getting on Holm at least after the weigh in. I actually did make some nice coin on Diaz vs MJ tho, and hit a small bet on Reem vs JDS same night.

    Conor is a much tougher match up for Nate, obviously. I just hope he tries to take it to the ground at some point and doesn't let his ego and chin get in the way.

    Remember to get a prepaid VISA just for your sports book. Never trust the fuckers. Getting money in is the easy part, always. Getting it out is the interesting part.
