Ronda Rousey (-1600) vs Bethe Correia (+900)
Whenever Ronda Rousey hits the octagon, the entire UFC world stops to see the most dominant female fighter perform. Rousey will have another shot to justify all the hype surrounding her when she takes on Bethe Correia, at the HSBC Arena, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in the main event of UFC 190.
Rousey opens as a clear favorite to win this fight, and betting on the money line has no meaning, unless you take the underdog. Since there is no way conceivable way Rousey will lose, the best thing to bet is how quickly she’ll end the contest.
The odds have the round total at 1.5;:Rousey is 11-0 on her UFC career with just one fight going into the third round, back in 2013 when she beat Miesha Tate. ‘Rowdy’ even took care of Cat Zingano in a lightning fast 14 seconds in her last fight.
“Bethe says the belt belongs here, and I’m like: ‘That’s all you can say?'” said Rousey at a prefight press conference. “Ok, then, I’m leaving the belt here in Brazil after I beat you. I’m serious, I mean, why not? I’ve received so much love these last few days, and I just want to give something back to my Brazilian fans. I believe that’s the greatest gesture.”
This is the first time Ronda Rousey will fight in Brazil and against a hometown challenger, but that doesn’t matter for the oddsmakers.
Bethe Correia is 9-0 on her UFC career, however, 78-percent of her wins has come on decisions: that won’t cut it for this meeting. She needs to dominate Rousey from the start and try to end it with her fast punches. Of course, that’s easier said than done.
“They’ve built her up to be this invincible fighter from the United States that no one is going to be able to beat,” Correia, the 32-year-old Brazilian challenger, tells USA TODAY Sports. “I’m going to show that’s a farce, and I’m going to beat her.”
Correia is a good fighter, but all the hype around Rousey’s name has been earned. Even though betting the underdog looks like a valuable bet, the play is going with a win by Rowdy under 1.5 rounds.
Pick: Rousey under 1.5.
