Sports betting monitoring company US Integrity has agreed to provide its services to Bellator MMA as the American MMA promotion seeks to uphold its values and drive integrity standards.

Under the terms of the agreement, US Integrity – which provides protection against betting-related fraud and corruption – will be involved in all aspects of every Bellator event in 2023.

The monitoring firm will provide integrity monitoring services via its proprietary dashboard and will conduct analysis across dozens of data sets to proactively identify irregular contest-level, officiating and wagering patterns.

Matthew Holt, US Integrity CEO and Co-Founder, commented: “US Integrity is proud to partner with Bellator and assist as wagering on their events continues to rapidly grow across the regulated sports betting market.

“US Integrity’s mission is to provide best in class insights and compliance solutions to our clients. We are looking forward to working with the exceptional team at Bellator as they work to improve their integrity policies and procedures. 

“All our partners are committed to the highest integrity standards, and they are no exception. These types of partnerships help ensure sports betting integrity and strengthen the unique and proprietary anomaly detection tools we have developed at US Integrity.”

The Bellator and US Integrity partnership was visible during Bellator 290 earlier this month and will continue throughout the rest of the year.

Scott Coker, Bellator President, added: “Integrity and legitimacy have always been of the utmost importance to the Bellator brand, and this partnership will help us keep these values intact.

“We’re pleased to be working with US Integrity, whose commitment and proactive approach will play a pivotal role in ensuring integrity on Bellator events.”
