MMA

We are more than two months away from the highly anticipated UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title fight between champion Amanda Nunes and Ronda Rousey, but the odds have already been set.

According to Best Fight Odds, the former champion in Rousey (-199) is the favorite of the current champion in Nunes (+180). Rousey has been the favorite in all of her previous bouts in the UFC, so being in this role is familiar territory.

Rousey will be competing for the first time since November 2015 at UFC 193, where she lost her bantamweight title to Holly Holm via second round head kick knockout. It was the first loss of her professional MMA career. Nunes will be making the first defense of her championship, which she won by submitting Miesha Tate by submission at UFC 200.

These odds will shift and fluctuate until showtime, as they always do.

UFC 207 will be taking place on Friday, December 30th from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Amanda Nunes and Ronda Rousey headlining the card.
