Was looking at the UFC 190 odds. As usual, they are 30-40 cent lines.

However, it is remarkable at least to me, that a woman fighter can be a 15 to 1 favorite. Is real money really wagered on these fights, especially at this type of lay(no pun)?

I think a "lock" would be more so with women, since many don't have the ability to KO and very few can do it with one punch, so that element of chance is diminished. Also, RR is legitimately a high level athlete. As popular as she is, there's no real foundation for womens MMA and a very shallow talent pool. That means she's often fighting women who really have almost no shot because they are practically amateurs. Like a college football team playing an NFL team. This happens a lot in boxing too, though for different reasons.

I've bet on UFC a bit. It was one of the few sports a layman could beat just by good handicapping for a long time, though I think it's getting harder now.

I have never seen her fight before but someone just posted it on Facebook so I figured why not. Why was the fight called? She hit her a few times and she fell. I thought ufc was punch and kick until they die. Did the other girl give up?

Actually, they stop the fights rather quickly, both men and women. In this case however I did agree with the stoppage. The loser was obviously knocked out and to remind, there is no "standing eight count". The fighter can pounce on the person they have just knocked down and seriously hurt them if the fight isn't halted.

She wasn't fighting back so thats why it was stopped but it was good stoppage. This ain't boxing she could have gotten seriously hurt from a ffew more seconds of Rhondas beatdown.
I wish I could have bet on Rhonda! She's a beast in the ring. maybe the only person to give her a good fight is cyborg

Anytime a fighter lands face first without putting hands down to break the fall, the fight is over. She was knocked out cold.

Probably woke up and wondered if the fight had started yet.
