Bet on UFC 200 Odds

Tate completed a long run toward the UFC belt in March when she submitted Holly Holm in the fifth round. She has won her last five fights, with the first four coming my decision. Nunes has won three straight since a TKO loss to Cat Zingano in 2014. Two of the three wins came by first-round stoppage. Even in the loss to Zingano, she was very close to earning a first-round TKO, but couldn’t quite finish here off before being submitted in the third round.

Tate is the champion and she has earned that honor, but she lives dangerously close to the edge. She was being beaten on the scorecards by Holm before finding a way to win and she has been known to start slow, and grind out victories. Nunes, on the other hand, is known for starting very fast. Finishing Tate hasn’t been easy, but it has been done. Nunes is likely to come out fast again, not concerning herself with five rounds. So, she must finish Tate in the early rounds, or likely gas out. Tate is not a great striker and doesn’t have KO power like Nunes. Look for the challenger to overwhelm Tate and find a way to earn the stoppage to win the belt. I like the underdog in this one.
