And almost as quickly as the fight being announced, oddsmakers published the betting lines for the UFC women’s bantamweight champion’s next scrap.
Bovada opened up with “Rowdy” as a 10-to-1 favorite over Holm. Check out the opening numbers below.
UFC 195 – MGM Grand – Las Vegas, USA
Ronda Rousey -1000 (1/10)
Holly Holm +600 (6/1)
UFC 195 is scheduled to go down on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand, and Rousey vs. Holm is tabbed to be the headliner of a currently developing card.
In her last fight, Rousey decimated Bethe Correia in just 34 seconds, keeping her perfect professional record intact. The win was her third in a row in under a minute, prompting media and fans to label her as the second coming of Mike Tyson.
Holm, meanwhile, is also undefeated and comes into the fight as a bit of a surprise opponent. UFC President Dana White originally announced Miesha Tate would face Rousey, but things apparently changed in recent weeks.
