Have bookmakers ever changed their odds after a staredown?

    Im not a betting man so I'm not sure how much odds fluxuate, if at all. There's always shercologists claiming certain fighters are mentally broken after staredowns, I even saw a thread recently claiming Ellenburger is already done. Do odds makers pay attention to this? I think if a guy comes in looking really out of shape or like they've had an extreme cut it might have an affect?

    The bookmakers set the odds.

    The public changes the odds.

    The odds change according to the amount of money coming in on each fighter.

    The goal is to have an even amount of money wagered on both fighters.

    Holly's odds dropped in half after the Ronda staredown.

    There was a lot of betting on Aldo after his staredown with McGregor

    I remember the odds changing quickly after Werdum came in fat and out of shape vs. JDS and rightfully so.

    happens all the time but its not really the staredown its the weigh ins as a whole it normally only moves a small bit but sometimes it moves big like the cormier odds v jones after the brawl and mcgregor aldo also thats just the first two that come to mind
