Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight titleholder Michael Bisping will headline the upcoming UFC 217 pay-per-view (PPV) mixed martial arts (MMA) event against former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre, who returns from his lengthy layoff with some extra meat on his bones.
They’ll do the deed on Sat., Nov. 4, 2017 inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, but if the opening odds from Bovada are any indication, “The Count” will enter his latest title defense as the betting underdog.
Bisping is sitting at +125 against St-Pierre’s -155.
“Rush” is currently swimming in the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) testing pool, clearing his name (and his urine) before entering the Octagon this fall. Bisping, meanwhile, is rehabbing a knee injury that kept him sidelined since last October.
In fact, the countless delays forced promotion president Dana White to reassign St-Pierre to the winner of Tyron Woodley vs. Demian Maia; however, “The Chosen One” stunk up the joint at UFC 214 and lost his chance for a payday fit for a king.
So, any fight fans ready to jump on the Bisping vs. St-Pierre betting line?
