Oddsmakers Set Cyborg vs. Rousey Betting Line, Cyborg Opens Up As Underdog


Following her successful Octagon debut at UFC 198 this past Saturday night in her hometown of Curitiba, Brazil, Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino is now back in the discussion for a super fight with Ronda Rousey, which even MMA oddsmakers are getting in on.

This week, online betting website Bookmaker.eu issued opening odds on a potential Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey UFC super fight, and surprisingly enough, Cyborg is listed as an underdog.

The online betting website currently has Cris Cyborg listed as a +220 underdog, while Rousey is a -280 favorite.

As things stand now, there is still no clear cut news regarding when and where Rousey will make her UFC return. She last fought in November of 2015, losing via devastating knockout to Holly Holm in Melbourne, Australia.

After her big UFC debut victory on Saturday, Cris Cyborg challenged Rousey to fight her at UFC 205. “Don’t be scared homie,” wrote Cyborg on social media.
