If you have been following the UFC gambling drama that has been unfolding you are probably aware that Ontario, Canada has banned betting on UFC. Shortly after Alberta joined them, also requiring that sportsbooks operating in the provinces of Ontario and Alberta remove UFC betting lines. If you are not familiar with the situation we will provide you with a bit of the backstory. 

James Krause of Glory MMA has been placed under investigation and suspended from the UFC due to concerns regarding his sports betting habits. Specifically the main concern is that he may be wagering against his own fighters or providing information about his fighters to third parties in order to obtain an edge on the sportsbooks. This became a concern when one of his fighters, Darrick Minner, had some very unusual line movement in a short period of time right before his fight started. After the fight was over, which Minner lost very decisively, it came out that Minner was in fact injured going into the fight. Darrick Minner has also been released from the UFC.

The working hypothesis of the MMA Twitter community was that Krause could have shared that information with people within his betting circle to obtain an advantage over the house. It is important to note that none of this is proven at this point, and James Krause and his fighters have not been found guilty of anything to point as far as publicly available information can confirm. For the moment it is just rumors and unsubstantiated claims from the online community as a whole. 

All of that aside, this situation has left Canadians in a tough spot when it comes to placing bets on UFC contests. In some of the most recent developments UFC betting has been suspended in both Alberta and Ontario Canada. But have no fear our dear Canadian friends!
