Yes, this was one I regret also.
While I was impressed with the ease Rousey displayed in her victories, it was also obvious of her major weakness of just wading in & smothering her opponents. She was primed for an ass whippin' & got it. I was considering a sizable bet but the Missus leaned back hard on the risk so..... *sigh*
I liken it to back when Roberto Duran was fighting Ray Leonard. Huge Duran fan & always disliked Leonard but realized that the size difference, 7" reach advantage along with Leonard's speed/footwork meant a sure loss. I was ecstatic when Duran won but was stunned that Leonard's ego walked him right into the loss.
I knew in a rematch things would go as they originally should & alas..No Mas. Now it was Duran's turn for his ego to make the mistake. Should have taken the 1st win & not challenged the Boxing Gods.
A Holm/Rousey rematch will go the same way. I don't see Rousey being able to deal with the size difference no matter what she does. Big problem is those 1st fight odds were a one shot deal.
Holms looked solid in her boxing skills & with her size advantage while sticking & moving side to side made me think easy money. I just wish the Missus would have listened...
Tough to make big money like that on single events but the keen eye, and full ball sack, usually catches the worm on these kinds of wagers.
