    A counter puncher with good TDD was that much of an underdog?

    I heard that the girl last night who kept saying she was counting down the days til she’s UFC champion was a 10:1 favorite to beat Roxanne the Dragon Ball nerd chick. If that’s the case, then it’s probably gotta be the biggest upset in the calendar year? Probably in 2020 as well.

    Because most people don't know either fighter well so they just bet on the one they knew more.

    If I'm not mistaken, Dave's bet on Holm was at +1100

    Ronda v Holm were unreal odds.
    Holm had just squeaked a decision n Ronda was smashing everyone. People thought Ronda would just wrestle her, arm bar her or GNP her.
