Rousey, the former women’s bantamweight champion, will not be available to fight at UFC 200 in July as she has requested more time off due to some delays in the filming of the remake of “Roadhouse,” which Rousey is one of the stars. Rousey has stated that she wants a rematch with Holm following a KO loss back on Nov. 14 at UFC 193. The loss was the first of Rousey’s (12-1) career and it came in devastating fashion, via kick to the head from the current champ.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Rousey is a slight favorite to win the potential rematch, should it happen. The former champion has been given a money line of -120 for the fight, while Holm sits at -110 to win.

With Rousey now out for an unknown amount of time, the UFC has booked Holm (10-0) to face No. 1 contender, Miesha Tate (17-5) in the co-main event of UFC 197, which takes place on March 5 in Las Vegas. Oddsmakers have Holm as a -350 favorite to open this fight, while Tate has been given odds of +265 to win.
