Georges St. Pierre Now 1.59 To Defeat Michael Bisping For Middleweight Title

Published on May 1st, 2017 4:29 pm EST

The UFC has two very big title fights coming up - Daniel Cormier vs Jon Jones II and Georges St. Pierre vs Michael Bisping - that don't officially have dates as of yet.

In a perfect world, Georges St. Pierre will be squaring off in the main event of UFC 213 against Michael Bisping on July 8th, while Daniel Cormier will defend his Light Heavyweight title against Jon Jones at UFC 214. This is what the UFC wants, though neither fight has been booked as of yet.

There were some eyebrows raised last week when a heavier Georges St. Pierre participated in an open workout. Many people were surprised to see the traditionally lean St. Pierre look so big. I mean, St. Pierre is still in phenomenal shape, though he has added a considerable amount of size as he jumps up to the Middleweight division. Bisping, never one to miss out on an opportunity, said that St. Pierre looked like he had been impregnated by an alien.

St. Pierre's bigger size did nothing to dissuade the people who are gambling money on him, as his odds to beat Bisping continue to strengthen. Here are the betting odds as of this moment:

Georges St. Pierre, 1.59
Michael Bisping, 2.40

These odds are still quite close, though it isn't quite the coin flip that it was when the fight was first announced.

St. Pierre, in his fight against Johny Hendricks, has shown that he possesses a good chin, and Bisping will be hard-pressed to knock St. Pierre out. In the end, gamblers expect that St. Pierre's wrestling will win him the title, as it has done so many times for him in the past.

Bisping's path to victory involves his cardio overwhelming a tired and depleted St. Pierre in the later rounds of the fight. Having said that. St. Pierre has plenty of experience in the championship rounds and will surely not step into the Octagon until he is in absolutely fabulous shape.

MMA fans continue to hope that St. Pierre and Bisping step into the Octagon sooner rather than later.
