Fight Versus Amanda Nunes To Feature Closest Odds of Rousey's Career

Published on December 19th, 2016 7:30 pm EST
Ronda Rousey is currently 12-1 as a professional mixed martial arts fighter.

All but two of Rousey's fights - her HKFC fight against Charmaine Tweet and her KOTC fight against Ediane Gomes - have been available for betting.

In all of Rousey's fights she has been listed as the favorite to win. In all but one of the fights (UFC 207 against Amanda Nunes), Rousey was the overwhelming favorite to win. Coincidentally, the fight in which Rousey was the biggest favorite to win (UFC 193 against Holly Holm), she ended up losing.


Here is a history of Rousey's betting odds:

Sarah D'Alelio, Strikeforce - Challengers 18, -650
Julia Budd, Strikeforce - Challengers 20, -700
Miesha Tate, Strikeforce: Tate vs Rousey, -400
Sarah Kaufman, Strikeforce: Rousey vs Kaufman, -800
Liz Carmouche, UFC 157: Rousey vs Carmouche, -1000
Miesha Tate, UFC 168: Weidman vs Silva 2, -650
Sara McMann, UFC 170: Rousey vs McMann, -360
Alexis Davis, UFC 175 - Weidman vs Machida, -850
Cat Zingano, UFC 184 - Rousey vs Zingano, -800
Bethe Correia, UFC 190 - Rousey vs Correia, -1400
Holly Holm, UFC 193 - Rousey vs Holm, -1650
Amanda Nunes, UFC 207 - Rousey vs Nunes, -185


As you can see, the odds for Rousey's fights got more and more lopsided as she was in the midst of her winning streak that included wins over Carmouche, Kaufman, McMann, Davis and Zingano.

By the time that Rousey stepped into the Octagon against Holly Holm at UFC 193, she was viewed as an unstoppable force who would dispatch any opponent in less than a minute. As a matter of fact, there was actually semi-serious talk at the time regarding how Rousey would fare against some of the men in the Bantamweight division.

All of that talk came to a crashing halt, however, after Holm knocked out Rousey with a kick to the head.

Will Rousey be able to re-establish her dominance, or is her time as a dominant fighter over?
