Rousey opens as 15-to-1 Favorite over Carmouche
Yesterday at the UFC on Fox 5 pre-fight press conference, Ronda Rousey was awarded the UFC’s first women’s bantamweight championship belt.
Instead of an expected superfight against former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino, Rousey will face top-ranked bantamweight Liz Carmouche in the main event at UFC 157.
According to Best Fight Odds, Rousey will walk into the bout as a historic -1500 favorite against her first opponent in the UFC. Those odds come from European betting site 5Dimes, which also pegs Carmouche as a notable +700 underdog.
