If you're a fan of former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, then run -- don't walk -- to the betting window to grab this current deal while it's still fresh off the assembly line.

I'm talking, of course, about his -150 betting line for a potential return fight against new division kingpin Tyron Woodley, the +120 underdog after pasting Robbie Lawler at the UFC 201 pay-per-view (PPV) event last weekend in Atlanta, Georgia, according to Bovada.

On the flip side, I'm sure that's a tasty number for Woodley and his millions of bloodthirsty fans.

In order to secure a fight against an agreeable St-Pierre, the champ would have to convince UFC matchmakers that Stephen Thompson, the current 170-pound No. 1 contender, needs to Woodley himself sit on the bench for the next few months so that "Chosen One" can chase that cheddar.

Probabaly not a tough sell when you consider this.

Nothing is official at this time and there are plenty of other names in the welterweight mix (like this "idiot"), but it took nearly three years away from mixed martial arts (MMA) to get St-Pierre the closest betting line he's seen in over a decade.

Who's ready to plunk down some coin just in case these two throw hands?
