Ronda Rousey Holly Holm

UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm and Ronda Rousey are likely going to square off again in an immediate rematch of their “UFC 193” bout. Holm took the world by surprise when she picked Rousey apart in the opening round before brutally knocking her out with a headkick in the second.

Bookies never gave Holm a chance, labeling her as one of the biggest underdogs in UFC title-fight history and they paid for it big time. Gamblers all around the world rejoiced when Holm held her championship up high and bookies aren’t looking to make that mistake again with the rematch.

While Rousey is once again the favorite walking into the bout, it isn’t by much. 5Dimes slapped a -150 on Ronda Rousey, meaning bettors would need to wager $150 in order to win $100. Holm is walking into the fight at +130 meaning bettors need to wager $100 in order to win $130.

Who do you think will walk out of the octagon with their hands raised the second go-around? Will Rousey adapt her gameplan so she takes the fight to the ground quicker or will Holm dictate where the action goes and knock the former champion out again?
