Carlos Condit, who defeated Nick Diaz via unanimous decision at UFC 143 last Saturday night (Feb. 4, 2012) in Las Vegas, Nevada, cleared his final hurdle en route to a Georges St. Pierre title fight later this year.
"The Natural Born Killer" secured the Welterweight Interim Championship with his five-rounder in "Sin City," and is now expected to face the Canadian kingpin in November of this year, assuming St. Pierre can stick to his tentative recovery schedule.
Regardless of when and where he returns, St. Pierre will do it as a -350 favorite, according to our fiscal friends over at Best Fight Odds. Condit will join him as the +270 underdog.
A lot can affect those lines as we move forward. Much of it depends on the stability of St. Pierre's knee, which was recently reconstructed after Georges ruptured his ACL in training camp.
Time will tell.
In the meantime, let's hear your initial reactions to these preliminary odds. Too high? Too low? Let's talk turkey in the comments section below.
