Rousey's corner bets stacks of cash on her


Ronda Rousey fights Miesha Tate in the co main event of UFC 168 on December 28. The current odds are around 8 to 1, and have been as high as 11 to 1. However, this has not deterred Rousey's corner from betting on her.

"My whole corner bets on me," Rousey told FOX Sports. "They get mad at me because my odds always suck. They split like over 20 grand every fight because they believe in me. It doesn't put any extra pressure on me. I'm like, 'F--- yeah.' My guys have so much faith in me they'll put down 20 grand to win five."

"This time, my friends were like, 'Ronda, if it wasn't a sure bet, I would be mad at you.' I was expecting the odds actually to be closer because I went to do all that movie stuff and I thought maybe more people would doubt me because of that. To see I'm up that much is kind of cool but no so great for friends. It's nice to know they're so confident in me though."

Miesta Tate is NOT Chris Weidman.

Last time I checked the line RR was at -750. That would be 37.5k to win 5k iirc.

I guess putting in on 20k to win 5.. still wouldn't be right at 8 or 10 to 1 though

Some of you guys are blind, or have never done any grappling other that starting off your knees. Rhonda dominated the take down department, Tate got nothing on take down on Rhonda, every single one of of Tate`s take down got reversed, Rhonda hit all her take down at will. Let me tell you, if you got hip toss that easily like the one Rhonda hit before the arm bar, you got nothing on the take down department and are totally outmatched.The level of standup grappling is too far apart between Tate and Rhonda, and Rhonda will dictate where the fight goes in their rematch.Liz Carmouche is by far the toughest fight for Rhonda because of her take down defense. If you rewatch that fight, Rhonda was having a very tough time taking Liz down.Without the takedown, Tate is useless. If Liz and Tate fight, I will put my money on Liz.
