In MMA news, Ronda Rousey will make her first walk to the Octagon in over a year when she takes on Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. Rousey has not fought since Holly Holm took her belt and gave her the first loss of her career at UFC 193.
During Rousey's time away from fighting, the UFC women’s bantamweight title has not been defended once, going from Holm to Miesha Tate to Nunes.
“Rowdy” has wisely taken some time away from the Octagon to clear her head. She has been reportedly close to returning on several occasions before Dana White announced her return in October.
ronda rousey ufc odds timeline
Rousey made her UFC debut against Liz Carmouche at UFC 157, winning by submission as the -1000 favorite. Rousey then beat Tate in the same manner at UFC 168 as a -650 favorite, and topped Sara McMann by TKO at UFC 170 as a -360 favorite.
At UFC 175, Rousey knocked out Alexis Davis as a -850 favorite just 16 seconds into the first round, and in her most recent appearance in the Octagon at UFC 184 she needed just 14 seconds to beat Cat Zingano by submission as the -800 favorite on the betting lines.
Rousey's win over Tate at UFC 168 was the only time she'd been taken past the first round in her undefeated career to that point, with Tate managing to last until the third round of the fight before losing via armbar submission.
Rousey closed as one of the biggest favorites in UFC history in her fight against Holm, with the then champion laying -1650. ‘Rowdy’ seemed off from the weigh-in ahead of that fight and was thoroughly embarrassed by Holm.
