Ronda Rousey will be a huge favorite to defend her UFC bantamweight belt on January 3 when she faces Cat Zingano at UFC 182.
The rumored fight was confirmed by the UFC today and online sportsbook Bodog was the first to post odds on it.
The Rousey-Zingano fight was scheduled to happen two years ago and the pair were scheduled to be coaches on The Ultimate Fighter. However, Zingano ripped up a knee and she was replaced by Miesha Tate.
After 18 months away with injuries and personal tragedy, Zingano returned and earned the title shot.
The fight will be the co-Main Event at UFC 182, which features the Jon Jones vs Daniel Cormier light heavyweight title scrap. Check out Bodog for the latest lines.
