Ribas is the clear favorite at -700 and currently ranks 15th on the UFC's Strawweight rankings, having only one loss in 10 fights.

VanZant meanwhile is a well known face, having appeared on Dancing With The Stars and Chopped, although her UFC career hasn't gone quite so well, only winning 8 of 12 fights.

VanZant has been missing from the octogon for 18 months and books are clearly expecting her to be rusty, although bettors have other ideas.
