    Ronda Rousey packed a punch — well, at least at the Las Vegas sports books. Jay Kornegay, vice president of the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, said Rousey’s stunning loss to Holly Holm on Saturday night exceeded the handle for an average NFL game and topped numbers for any previous Rousey fight. And Rousey wasn’t the only one who lost Saturday night.

    “The results around town were not good,’’ Kornegay told USA TODAY Sports, referring to Las Vegas sports books. “Most books got crushed as typical underdog betting was popular.’’

    The consensus line: betters had to wager $900 on Rousey to win $100 and could wager $100 on Holm to win $600. Betting tickets on Holm outnumbered those on Rousey by a 5-to-1 margin at Westgate, according to Kornegay. "They love low risk, high reward on those fights,’’ Kornegay said. “The rematch should be huge.’’

    Shoot, if I were in Vegas, I would've tossed $50 on that, as well. Women's MMA is heavy hype. Would have been a nice haul.

    I don't know which site or service my buddy used, but it was paying 10:1 at the time he got in. He put in $100 so he basically ended up making an easy grand on RR getting her bell rung. Naturally, wishes he'd put in way more.

    What I don't understand is Vegas usually pretty smart and knows where the lines are. How did they not have an inkling RR was a 1-trick smoke & mirror show?
