When Nick Diaz (Pictured) was slated to challenge reigning UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre for his crown last year, he was pegged as a 3-to-1 underdog to steal GSP’s crown. Fast forward 14 months, which includes a year-long marijuana suspension, and not much has changed for Mr. 209′s chances of beating the baddest 170-pounder on the planet. Diaz will be entering the March 16th scrap as a +325 longshot to dethrone “Rush.” St-Pierre, meanwhile, checks in as a 4.5-to-1 odds-on favorite to retain his title. FYI – St-Pierre was just over a 4-to-1 favorite when he was supposed to meet Diaz at UFC 137. Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada hosts the March 16th festivities. Here are the available wagering lines for UFC 158 (Courtesy of BetUS): Favorite (-) Underdogs (+) Carlos Condit +140 Rory MacDonald -170 Nick Diaz +325 Georges St-Pierre -450
