Gina Carano vs Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos Betting Odds and Analysis

By Paul Wednesday, August 12, 2009


Carano (+160) vs Santos (-185 Bodog)

Female fighters are finally coming into there own with the first ever ladies headline event topped with the first ever women's title on the line.

Gina Carano (7-0) is with out a doubt the most recognized female fighter in the world but she's also a very strong fighter with a lot of heart and heavy hands. Gina has trained with many of the best in the business and produced some dominant preformances.

Her opponent "Cyborg" (7-1) trains out of the Chute Box Academy is just plain scary. Her pace and power would be daunting for anyone at 145, man or woman. She's not as technical as Carano, but her speed, power, and conditioning leave no question as to why she's coming in as the favorite.

Even in interviews Gina acknowledges that she's outgunned in this fight and she's going to have to find any nick in a stellar opponents game.

Carano is a striker by trade but, it's likely she'll look to take this to the ground to overcome Christiane's speed advantage on the feet. The odds are pretty close to the true odds. I'm picking Cyborg to punish Gina for the distance, it's not going to be a beauty pageant by the end of this one.
