Betting on the UFC remains a topic of hot conversation as the recent announcement that the organization’s independent contractors were no longer allowed to bet on the fights was followed-up by a bout which now has the UFC’s betting integrity firm, Don Best Sports, analyzing its finish. The investigation comes after a late and steep rise in bets on Shayilan Nuerdanbieke to win inside of the distance, including a rush of money on him to do so in the first round, combined with a first round TKO after his opponent Darrick Minner threw a hard leg kick immediately after having appeared to badly injure the leg on a preceding leg kick. The move left representatives of the firm unsure if the decision was a clear sign of fight throwing or just routine in-fight MMA decision making. Observers have also noted the potential of a pre-existing leg injury, which would make it even more baffling for Minner to throw multiple kicks with such force, a piece of evidence representatives of Don Best Sports have said would be “entirely inconclusive” if confirmed.

This was definitely either gross malpractice or entirely unremarkable.
