Betting Advice on Who Wins UFC 207 with Amanda Nunes vs Ronda Rousey
The wagering odds have come down on Rousey -160 who is the UFC 207 betting favorite versus Champion Nunes +130. The opening line had Rousey as a much bigger favorite at +300 and has moved down while Rousey has been doing much less press which is interesting.
Bet Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes (13-4 MMA, 6-1 UFC) at +130 Because…
Amanda Nunes won the UFC Bantamweight Championship 6 months ago, and Ronda Rousey hasn’t fought since losing the belt in a knockout over a year ago. That could happen again because Nunes has some serious power as a striker. She will keep her opponent in arms reach (3-inch advantage) to take advantage of Rousey’s footwork and maximize the damage with her boxing skill.
The circling, striking and getting the hell out of there skills by Nunes are top notch, top notch, and she doesn’t want to go to the mat with Rousey.
Bet Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) at -160 Because…
This is a different Ronda Rousey than we are used to, because she is not out in front of the public daily. The UFC 207 promoting machine has her out there, but she made sure she only had to do minimal promotion while training out in the woods away from the public and press.
Nunes has a very passive wrestling style and tires easily, so expect Rousey to take her down until she can submit her. The former champ is also superior in takedowns whether giving or defending them, so expect this to be figured out end of 1st round.
UFC 207 Betting Advice
“What makes me happy is winning and being the best in the world and that’s it. F*&k all the promotion and energy spent on anything that’s not me winning” Rowdy said. She said that’s her attitude and actions for this fight, which is opposite of seeing her everywhere before her only loss to Holly Holm.
If you believe that quote is real and honest (I do) then Rousey should come into this with smoke coming out of her ears, spit coming out of her mouth and fire coming out of her eyes. Her takedowns are superior to Nunes who will try to keep it at a boxing distance unsuccessfully. I expect Rousey to fight smarter and wear her down first, so I think this makes it to the 2nd round.
