The fight is the most eagerly-anticipated UFC welterweight title fight in years, with Las Vegas oddsmakers giving the Ada, Oklahoma-born Hendricks the best shot to take the title away from “GSP” in years. The No.1 ranked challenger is currently listed as +205 (or a little over 2-1) to snatch the title away, the narrowest odds offered on any GSP opponent since BJ Penn challenged the Canadian half a decade ago at UFC 94.
The fighters will take to the scales ahead of tomorrow night’s event in Las Vegas. Georges St-Pierre will try to defend his welterweight title once again but must face what some say is his toughest opponent to date in Johny Hendricks. Rashad Evans and Chael Sonnen will handle the co-main event duties in a night of stellar fights.
