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.”
