UFC 157: Carmouche vs Rousey Odds

Published on February 16th, 2013 1:55 pm EST
On Saturday, February 23rd, history will be made as Ronda Rousey will defend her Women's Bantamweight title against Liz Carmouche in the main event of UFC 157. This will be the first time in the history of the UFC that two women have squared off against each other in the Octagon.

Another intriguing fight is Lyoto Machida vs Dan Henderson in the co-main event. The winner of this fight will very likely square off against the winner of Jon Jones vs Chael Sonnen, which is set to take place at UFC 159. Henderson and Machida both had opportunities to fight for the Light Heavyweight title in 2012, with Henderson pulling out of UFC 151 due to injury and Machida deciding not to fill in against Jones at UFC 152.


Let's take a look at the current betting odds for the fights on the main card of UFC 157:

Ronda Rousey, -1100
Liz Carmouche, +650

Lyoto Machida, -230
Dan Henderson, +180

Urijah Faber, -375
Ivan Menjivar, +285

Court McGee, n/a
Josh Neer, n/a

Josh Koscheck, -500
Robbie Lawler, +350

The odds for McGee/Neer haven't been released as of yet.


As you can see, Ronda Rousey is a massive favorite to beat Liz Carmouche. A $1,100 bet on Rousey would yield a total profit of $100, while a $100 bet on Carmouche would yield a profit of $650, if Carmouche is able to pull out the upset.

Note: odds will likely change as the card draws closer
