Amanda Nunes

Amanda Nunes will defend her bantamweight title when she faces Holly Holm. The two division UFC champion, Amanda Nunes is definitely the favourite here, both on form and on paper and the so called Preacher’s Daughter will find it hard to dethrone the Brazilian who is also known as the Lioness.

This fight is what UFC girls fights are all about as it will pit one of the biggest names in female UFC fighting with an inconsistent fighter such as Holly Holm, but with all outcomes of the fight still remaining open. This is especially true as Holm comes with huge potential to surprise here because her chequered form recently is more the result of bad luck than anything else.

However, Amanda Nunes is expected to hold her ground firmly and continue her amazing form which has seen her last lose a fight back in September 2014, when she lost to Cat Zingano.

Betting operators have already come out with a comprehensive list of UFC betting odds for the fight and it is not a surprise that they all favour the Brazilian. In fact, if you type Amanda Nunes UFC on your browser, you will see that all bookmakers have her as a strong favourite to win here.

Current Odds


sportpesaAmanda Nunes is definitely the favourite with SportPesa. The renowned sports betting operator gives the Brazilian odds of 5/19 to notch her 22 victory in her MMA career which includes only four losses.

In her recent matches Nunes managed to absolutely destroy fighters such as Cyborg, Rousey, and Tate. In all of these fights the Brazilian triumphed in the first round and all of them were crucial title matches.

Holm cannot say the same for her recent form and the people at SportPesa seem to agree. They give the American odds of 47/20 to cause an upset, but neither they nor Holm seem to feel that this is possible. This is because Holm has failed to record back-to-back victories since 2015 and it is difficult to imagine how this trend could change in this fight.

SportPesa gives its clients the chance to make full use of their acca boost promotion and this is probably where your chance lies if you want to back Nunes. At odds of 5/19 she is not a very enticing proposition, but if you include her in your SportPesa accumulator, you can get a boost of up to 50% on your regular winnings.


unibetIf you are a member of the Holly Holm camp, you probably don’t feel too optimistic about her prospects for this fight. However, as you are her regular backer, you probably want to place some money on her, but are afraid that you might lose them before the second round has even begun.

The odds which are given to the Preacher’s Daughter are quite enticing as well and you won’t find many places which give higher odds that the odds of 49/20 that Unibet assigns to Holm.

If, on the other hand, you firmly believe that Nunes will win despite your allegiances then backing her at odds of 3/10 is definitely not a bad idea as those odds are also slightly higher than the competition’s.
