Rousey vs Cyborg Odds: Rowdy Favored

Will a Rousey vs. Cyborg matchup ever happen? There are logistical challenges to getting that MMA Superfight on the schedule, but that hasn’t stopped the oddsmakers at the sportsbooks from setting betting lines – and making Ronda Rousey the favorite.

At Bodog odds have now been posted for a future Rousey vs. Cyborg matchup, with Rousey the -375 favorite and Cristiane Justino the +285 underdog for the hypothetical fight. The one condition – the bout must take place in 2015 or 2016 for the wager to have action.

Rousey was last in the Octagon at UFC 190 in Brazil when she knocked out Bethe Correia just over 30 seconds into the first round as a big -1400 favorite on the betting lines to defend her Bantamweight championship. Rousey’s last three UFC fights have lasted a combined 64 seconds, increasing the calls for her to take on Cyborg.

However, Justino is a Featherweight, and would need to drop down to 135 pounds to be able to face Rousey in a Bantamweight fight in the UFC. The two could also meet in a catchweight bout should Cyborg not be able to drop weight and the allure of a big payday be too great to pass up for all parties.

Rousey’s next fight, though, is expected to be another rematch with Miesha Tate, with the two having fought twice already in the past. Rousey beat Tate in a Strikeforce match back in March 2012 as a -400 favorite to become the women’s Bantamweight champion, and then topped her again at UFC 168 in December 2013 as a -650 favorite.

Rousey’s win over Tate at UFC 168 is the only time she’s been taken past the first round in her undefeated career, with Tate managing to last until the third round of the fight before losing via armbar submission.

Speculation is that Rousey vs. Tate III will happen at UFC 194 in December, with Bodog setting Rousey as the -1000 favorite with Tate the +600 underdog. At 5Dimes Rousey is a -1200 favorite over the +775 Tate, with the UNDER 1.5 rounds the favorite at -265 for the matchup despite Tate’s strong resistance in their last meeting.
