Westgate Las Vegas Sportsbook Vice President Jay Kornegay described results as “not good” for the oddsmakers as low-risk, high reward bettors cashed in Saturday night. A $100 bet on Holm resulted in a $600 payoff, while bettors had to pony up $900 on Rousey to earn $100.

All eyes are on Ronda, not for her next movie or talk show appearance, but rather an inevitable rematch against an opponent who was superior Saturday night.

In an interview with Fox Sports, she admitted she wasn’t sure if she would be able to make it to the event.

Ironically, Rousey’s unblemished record makes her more valuable to WWE than UFC.
