You can now win major money with one gambling site if you can guess the potential Georges St-Pierre opponent for the former champ’s return!
This week, news surfaced that former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre would likely be returning to the Octagon sooner rather than later after reports had begun to emerge that he and the promotion had reached an agreement, and were finalizing the details on a multi-fight contract.
In the wake of those reports, oddsmakers have released the odds for who St-Pierre’s first opponent could be if he ends up returning to the Octagon.
Here are the current lines with Bovada
Michael Bisping at 5/4 (+125)
Anderson Silva at 3/1 (+300)
Stephen Thompson at 5/1 (+500)
Tyron Woodley at 5/1 (+500)
Nick Diaz at 11/2 (+550)
Robbie Lawler at 11/2 (+550)
BJ Penn at 12/1 (+1200)
CM Punk at 150/1 (+15,000)
The odds are interesting in several regards. The first being that according to odds, St-Pierre is most likely to fight UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping in a fight which will likely be for Bisping’s middleweight strap. The fight was reportedly close to being finalized last year before negotiations between St-Pierre and the UFC went south and St-Pierre was forced to delay his return once again.
With that being said, upon winning the UFC welterweight championship, UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley called for a superfight with Georges St-Pierre. While many thought the fight could potentially go down, Woodley ultimately ended up signing to fight Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson at UFC 205, which subsequently lead to a rematch at UFC 209 in March.
Of course a fight with former middleweight kingpin Anderson ‘The Spider’ Silva is listed as a potential scrap, with the odds of that scrap taking place being second. In addition, a rematch with Nick Diaz is listed at +550, meaning a $100 bet on a rematch with Diaz could potentially earn you $550 if St-Pierre returns and signs to fight Diaz.
If a fight is officially announced for St-Pierre, expect some pretty interesting odds for that fight.
