UFC 207 odds wouldn’t probably be of much interest to us if it weren’t for the return of Ronda Rousey. The one time undefeated UFC Bantamweight Champion lost her title in an upset knockout to Holly Holms. Rousey then took an extended absence from the ring and now returns to take on the current titleholder Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes.
This is a fight that many wanted to see for a long time but was postponed due to weight class and promotion issues. However, this Friday will see the much anticipated match and Nunes will most likely be the toughest competitor that Rousey has ever face in the Octagon. Let’s take a look at UFC 207 odds for the fight.
UFC 207 Odds – Ronda Rousey vs. Amanda Nunes
The T-Mobile arena in Las Vegas will be the site of the fight and current odds have “Rowdy” Rousey as the -145 favorite and Nunes as the +115 underdog. The UFC 207 odds will most likely remain the same right up until the fight, and I think Rousey’s odds are really about all the public money coming in on her as the media favorite. Since the bookmakers have Amanda Nunes as only a +115 dog they are telling us that they think this fight is most likely pretty even.

So what do I think of the UFC 207 odds and who do I think will win? Well like many I like the idea of a charismatic champion like Rousey- it’s good for the sport and almost certainly sets up Nunes vs. Rousey II. As I mentioned above, I also think the true odds here are probably a pick’em. You could make a case for saying that the UFC and Rousey’s camp put up a lot of roadblocks to an earlier match with Nunes as they groomed the phenomenal career and rise of Rousey. Make no mistake, Nunes is an elite level threat.

At the end of the day I think there is a slight edge as a bettor to taking Nunes. Not so much for the line as for the fact that this could go the distance and a decision usually goes to the champ- which would be Nunes in this case. However, if Rousey is in old form then watch out as this could be over quick particular with a submission. I would call this an entertainment bet- get $25 on the fighter you want to win and enjoy the fight.
