The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) organization announced that it became an official partner of the crypto-sportsbook Stake.com. The partnership was officially launched on March 5, 2021 and is mainly focused on the Latin American and Asian markets. As a matter of fact, Stake will be the first UFC partner to operate in both regions, except for Brazil.
The collaboration will allow the emerging bookmaker to add unique UFC-based promotions to its platform, featuring some of the most popular MMA fighters. Notably, in January 2021, Israel Adesanya signed to be the first UFC fighter to become a Stake ambassador.
The UFC Vice President of Global Partnerships, Nick Smith, stated: “We’re thrilled to partner with an exciting and emerging platform like Stake.com to offer our fans exclusive digital and social content, as well as an innovative gaming experience.” He also added: “UFC prides itself on being innovators, and Stake.com is a unique way for fans to experience the action and excitement of UFC.”
Stake’s Public Relationships Manager, Milan Jovancevic, said: “All of us at Stake are massive UFC enthusiasts. We’re excited to partner with such a dominant brand to deliver a one-of-a-kind betting experience and accelerate our global expansion”.

Crypto sportsbooks are on the rise in the last few years and Stake.com is the last very promising addition. The sports betting section has been launched in 2020 and is normal to have some glitches, especially in live betting. The sportsbook is developed in-house, provides top odds on the major football leagues, but is not very competitive on the minor competitions. Stake has invested a lot in the community which is super helpful and efficient, while the website's interface is sleek and smooth. However, these are not the key reasons to pick a bookie. What I find more important is the group's financial backup and betting in anonymity. Stake succeeds in both. I expect much further improvement, in terms of betting experience, like quicker and more accurate bet settlements or adding handy feats such as Bet Builder and Partial Cash Out.
I will be patient before I wholly endorse them, they seem like they have the full potential.
