Life's a Fitch and then you die.
Of course "The Prodigy" wouldn't have dropped to lightweight if Georges St. Pierre and Matt Hughes hadn't finished the husky Hawaiian back in 2006, which is why the oddsmakers are playing it safe in his welterweight headliner against Fitch with a +160 betting line.
The tenacious ex-Boilermaker sails in as the -200 favorite.
In the co-main event, trash-talking "Conquistador" Jorge Rivera tries to overcome his +275 line against the pitter-patter of little fists from Michael Bisping (-375), who by my "Count" may be one or two wins away from a 185-pound title fight.
But that's not all.
