Ronda Rousey Favourite for Revenge Rematch Against Holly Holm
Holly Holm knocked out both Ronda Rousey and the bookmakers yesterday with her brutal head kick; however leading bookie William Hill is still backing the former champion to have her revenge in a possible rematch next year.
Leading bookmaker William Hill has installed Ronda Rousey as the $1.55 favourite in the yet-to-be confirmed rematch, while new bantamweight champion Holly Holm is the $2.45 outsider.
“Just like Rousey, we got absolutely smashed yesterday. We had more than double the amount of people place bets on the Holm upset,” William Hill spokesperson Tim Ashworth said.
“Ronda Rousey is a proven champion and future great of the sport, so it’s more a matter of when, and not if, we see her serve up some revenge in a rematch against Holly Holm.”
Ahead of UFC 194 next month, Irishman Conor McGregor is favourite to take out the featherweight unification title fight against Brazilian José Aldo.
