Rousey vs. Holm Odds
The most dominant athlete in sports puts her title on the line once against this Saturday as Ronda Rousey faces Holly Holm in the main event of UFC 193.
Rousey (12-0) puts her UFC women’s bantamweight championship on the line on Saturday when she faces another unbeaten in Holm (9-0). Rousey is looking to defend her title for the seventh time. Her last three fights have been a combined 64 seconds and all but one of her 12 fights have ended by stoppage in the first round. Holm is a former boxing champion that converted to MMA and she is 2-0 in the UFC so far with a pair of decision victories.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, Rousey is the overwhelming favorite in this bout, as she is getting odds of -2000 to win, while Holm has a money line of +900 to win. These two are the main event of UFC 193, which takes place on Saturday from Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Australia. The event airs live on PPV at 10PM ET.
Holm certainly has the striking skills to beat Rousey, as she is a boxing champion with solid length and kicks. The issue is, once these two get entangled, will she be able to defend Rousey’s world-class judo and grappling? Rousey has had no issue applying her armbars to any opponent, but she has been focused more on striking lately. Rousey may want to prove a point and beat Holm on her feet to show her all-around talents, because if the fight goes to the ground, she should win with ease. If Holm can land a clean shot, she can pull off the upset, but Rousey may never give her a chance to do it.
