St-Pierre vs Whittaker Betting Odds

What is next for Georges St-Pierre? After claiming the UFC middleweight championship at UFC 217, GSP seemed noncommittal to what the future holds.

St-Pierre could move back to his more natural weight of 170 pounds and certainly get an immediate title match with Tyron Woodley. He could decide to chase the big-money fight and test his mettle against Conor McGregor. But if GSP decides to stay at 185 pounds, he knows who awaits him.

Interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker is sitting patiently in the wings waiting for his chance to unify the belts and become the undisputed champion. And though Whittaker has been complimentary to GSP, he has also been critical.

“To be honest, he looked slower than he’s ever been,” Whittaker told news.com.au. “He’s just as crafty. You can see the intelligence is still there. His fight IQ is still there. He obviously hits harder at middleweight. But I hit hard and I hit fast — and much harder and faster than Bisping.”

There is no doubt that Whittaker offers a much more threatening opponent to GSP than Bisping. The Aussie is 10 years younger than GSP and has established an eight-fight winning streak that includes victories over some of the best fighters in the world.

That is not to say GSP would have no hope in a bout against Whittaker. It is clear that the Canadian still has all the talent and – should he choose to stay at middleweight – will be more comfortable with carrying that weight inside the Octagon.

Online sportsbook Bovada has opened odds for a potential title unification bout and they favored Whittaker. “Bobby Knuckles” hit the boards as a -165 favorite with GSP coming back at +135.
