Holy Crap, You Gamblers: Ronda Rousey Is a -375 Favorite Over Miesha Tate

On March 3rd, red-hot women’s MMA prospect Ronda Rousey will drop to 135 pounds for the first time to challenge Miesha Tate for her Strikeforce women’s bantamweight title. Rousey’s pro MMA career isn’t even a year old yet, and she’s already facing the world’s top-ranked 135′er, a woman who holds victories over such big names as Marloes Coenen and Zoila Gurgel.

And according to oddsmakers, Miesha Tate is dead meat.

Props to MiddleEasy for alerting us to the current betting odds for next month’s Tate vs. Rousey showdown in Columbus, Ohio. Due to her string of armbar victories within the first minute of her fights, Ronda Rousey is as high as a -375 favorite in the matchup, with Tate slated as a +275 ‘dog. That, my friends, is insane.

Should Rousey be the favorite here at all? It’s hard to say. Miesha Tate represents such an extraordinary leap in competition level for Rousey, that it’s nearly impossible to predict how their fight will play out. This will be the match that determines if Ronda is overhyped or the real deal. And yet, the oddsmakers have already decided that this is Ronda’s fight to lose.

With a pairing this volatile, we wouldn’t actually recommend that you bet money on this fight. But if you’re a Miesha fan, you might want to jump on this line early.

Semi-related: Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey is scheduled to take place the same day as UFC on FX 2. For the last time, Zuffa — you own Strikeforce now, so you can stop trying to bury them with counter-programming.

Of course she's favored, she won the 'whose ass would you rather see in top control' contest also.

I don't think the odds are crazy. To me most of the WMMA fighters
are on a similar level except for Rousey and Cyborg, these two are the only two who dominate their competition every time they fight. I know Ronda has only had 4 fights but the level of competition she has faced in Judo outweighs any of Meishas opponents IMO. Rhonda has been competing with other girls that have been fighting their whole life not just the last few years.

I'm taking Tate.
Never heard of cock holster before - that's a good one. I'm gonna use on my chick and see if I get another punch to the face.

Thanks man! The other guitar player from my old band and I composed/performed the music. We were going to have our college orchestra perform it, but unfortunately ran out of time and had to record it all on a synth.

Well I for one want to take that bet but I can't find it on bovada. Anyone know where this line is available?
RSparrow- February 1, 2012 at 9:38 am
Haha my bad. I wonder if the Diaz brothers gave Rousey the eiffel tower... Continue..
The12ozCurls- February 1, 2012 at 9:20 am
Come on man. Not even a courtesy chuckle. Throw me a bone.
Blame it on Kid Clam Curtains - he started it and we just followed along. We are pretty simplistic. Once one dude says something about a vagina, you can pretty much forget about any form of civility.
And, I watched "A View of Burning Empires"
Well done, I enjoyed it & the music made it even better. Kudos.

12 or so comments deep and not one related to the actual odds.
*holds back tears of joy*
You make me proud, Potato Nation.

Not sure why it's so amazing, Ronda is gonna throw her ass on the mat in 20 seconds

I like the messy car, it means she's not like paris hilton where you gotta run down the street to hide your farts. this is a tom boy, & all tomboys are crazy in the sack. it means she's confident & not worried about stray hairs or peeing in the alley if she really needs too. this is the kind of chick you could have a lot of fun with. only problem would be other guy friends getting in the way. If she finds a guy she can settle with, that guy has gold in her. she's a rock.
RSparrow- February 1, 2012 at 8:47 am
12poz, I wanna laugh at your jokes... I really do...
The_Dead_Cow- February 1, 2012 at 8:44 am

Is that why you keep your car nice and clean? You know, so people don't think YOUR cunt is dirty and nasty. BTW, you should change your name to RoastBeefCurtains, you know, in honor of your clean vagina. HA!
bootystar- February 1, 2012 at 8:39 am
she'll probably be the next mma girl to actually successfully bridge into film. she is confident infront of the camera & she's a serious tease. & bet she could make you spit from across the room. who knows maybe she'll do for mma movies what JCVD did for the kumate. watch it happen. she's gonna make the run that Carano opened the door for. I believe Rousey is just rousing from her slumber & gonna kick major hollywood ass. she'll kick of the new breed of fight shows, like JCVD, but it will be updated.

I say she doesn't make weifght and blames GSP because he is so boring.
The12ozCurls- February 1, 2012 at 8:27 am
I say she doesn't make weight and blames it on the copies of the Twilight saga she bought on Amazon stuffed up her hatchet wound. I bet her cock holster smells like a god damn library.
bootystar- February 1, 2012 at 8:22 am
hope she's not trying to look like monroe, though the side step to her hair is kinds exi, she'd deffo do for a night, it's seems that's all she cares about anyway so. whatevs, chicks say the same thing to me all the time
