Although the fantasy fight between UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva (Pictured) and welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre is nowhere close to becoming fact, that hasn’t stopped the Gambling Gods from dropping their two cents on the subject.
If the blockbuster bout comes to fruition, the powers that be have dubbed Silva a slight -160 odds-on favorite to snap GSP’s 10-fight winning streak.
St-Pierre, on the other hand, checks in just behind as a -150 underdog against the most decorate 185-pounder in Octagon history.
When/if the mixed martial arts icons do battle, it is believed they will collide in a catchweight contest – likely at 177 or 178 pounds.

Such is often the case with MMA though, as it’s one of the toughest sports to predict. But luckily for me there’s another UFC card in only a few short weeks and another chance to right the ship of my predictions.
