Ronda Rousey (12-1) received the first loss of her career at UFC 193 via Ko in the second round at the hands of the new UFC Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm (10-0). The contest was a lopsided affair and Holm’s hand-speed and elusiveness proved too much for Rousey to handle.

This past weekend the UFC held UFC 193 on PPV featuring a couple key match ups ranking wise, most notably in the women’s bantamweight division where Holly Holm became the women’s bantamweight champion and debuted in the pound for pound rankings.

Former UFC champion Jon Jones was also made eligible for the rankings and was placed back in the pound for pound and light heavyweight rankings.

The line on Rousey (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) opened at -300, making her a 3-1 favorite, with Holm (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) as a +250 underdog. But those numbers quickly shifted with plenty of money coming in on Holm’s side – enough to drop Rousey to as low as about a -140 favorite as of Monday night according to numbers published at Best Fight Odds.

No date has been set for the likely rematch between the bantamweights, but on Saturday, after Rousey’s shocking knockout loss to Holm in the UFC 193 main event, UFC President Dana White said a rematch makes the most sense once Rousey completes obligations that were in place before the fight – including filming a pair of movies.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
