Georges St-Pierre opens as early favorite over Robert Whittaker ... and Conor McGregor

Esther Lin/MMA Fighting

Georges St-Pierre and T.J. Dillashaw both won titles at this past weekend’s (Sat., Nov. 4, 2017) UFC 217 event in New York City, as “Rush” submitted Michael Bisping to win the Middleweight strap, while Dillashaw knocked out Cody Garbrandt to claim the Bantamweight championship. But, only one man is expected to be successful in his next fight.

According to the oddsmakers over at Bovada, St-Pierre is the heavy favorite to defeat Robert Whittaker if and when the two men tango in a title unification match sometime in 2018. Furthermore, should “Rush” ever find himself face-to-face against Conor McGregor, the odds have him winning.

Georges St-Pierre vs Robert Whittaker

Georges St-Pierre -160 (5/8)
Robert Whittaker +130 (13/10)

Georges St-Pierre vs Conor McGregor

Georges St-Pierre -150 (2/3)
Conor McGregor +120 (6/5)

Of course, that’s assuming the French-Canadian sticks around at 185-pounds. As for a fight against “Notorious,” well, the chances of a fight between the two of them going down are slim to none.

While Dillashaw will likely face the winner of the upcoming bout between Dominick Cruz and Jimmie Rivera — which is set to pop off at UFC 219 on Dec. 30, 2017 — he took the chance to call for a Flyweight championship bout against Demetrious Johnson. One UFC president Dana White seems to be on board with.

Should that super fight go down, “Mighty Mouse” is the favorite to retain to his title, further adding to his consecutive title defense record.

Demetrious Johnson vs T.J. Dillashaw

Demetrious Johnson -201 (1/2)
T.J. Dillashaw +160 (8/5)
