UK fans able to bet on OKTAGON MMA with SkyBet after betting market debut on William Hill



Reading Time: < 1 minute


UK fans are now able to get even more involved with OKTAGON MMA, after news broke that fans can bet on Europe’s leading MMA promotion with SkyBet.

Although fans can already bet in the UK via William Hill, the move to SkyBet opens up the market even further for fans wishing to get involved with the action.

OKTAGON has made significant strides to get more involved with its ever-growing UK fanbase, with the first ever show on these shores in November 2023 at the AO Arena in Manchester.

On the back of that success, OKTAGON returned twice in 2024; the first coming at the Utilita Arena in Newcastle in January, before an enthralling night at the Resorts World Arena in Birmingham in April.

OKTAGON MMA co-owner Pavol Neruda commented: “We are really pleased that our fanbase in the UK and Ireland can now engage even further with OKTAGON MMA.

“SkyBet is an extremely well-respected platform, and this exemplifies the growth of OKTAGON MMA in the UK and Ireland, a market where we have dedicated significant effort to expand, and shine a light on up-and-coming MMA talent.”

UK fans can place their first bet via SkyBet for the next OKTAGON tournament, when the organisation lands in Prague at the spectacular Fortuna Arena for OKTAGON 58 for the blockbuster rematch between Karlos Vemola and Attila Vegh in front of 27,000 fans.
