UFC 170 Odds: MMA Queen Rousey Heavily Favored in Saturday Night Match
With a pair of emphatic victories already under her belt, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will look to add a third this Saturday, when the 27-year-old hops back in the octagon for a date with veteran Sara McMann. Early UFC odds favor Rousey, but can she live up to the expectations that come with being the constant favorite?
With her women’s bantamweight title on the line, Ronda Rousey will look to pick up where she left off last December when she takes on Sara McMann at UFC 170. The undefeated Rousey has a -400 advantage over her veteran opponent. Might McMann – a former Olympian herself, just like Rousey – find a way to avoid her opponent’s notorious armbar submission?
Favored with -400 odds for UFC 170, Rousey is the more recognizable betting option heading into her first scrap since December. In that bout it took just three rounds for the California native to submit Miesha Tate with what’s fast becoming a notorious armbar.
This time out Rousey will take on an experienced McMann who’s established herself as a versatile threat capable of either going the distance or submitting opponents in a variety of different ways. Will the older, wiser McMann be able to avoid the revered submission that Rousey has applied in each of her previous eight bouts?
Though just 2-0 since becoming the first female fighter to sign on with UFC back in November, 2012, Rousey’s fight portfolio stretches back to her days with Strikeforce and beyond. In every single victory it’s been that armbar delivering the final blow. Now it’s time to find out if the trend continues.
