UFC betting odds will be in full play when Georges St-Pierre and BJ Penn square off in the bet on UFC 94 event on January 31st 2009.
As most UFC betting fans know this will be the second time that these two welterweights square off, this time with the UFC betting welterweight championship belt on the line. If UFC betting history is any indicator, current champ St-Pierre looks to have the advantage in this match up.
UFC 94 will be the first UFC betting event of the new year and no doubt will draw much interest from the betting public. While not as flashy a line up as the last UFC event, the bet on UFC 94 is full of great fights, especially this headliner. St-Pierre enters as the favorite in the minds of most UFC betting odds makers. Since defeating Penn, St-Pierre has become one of the most successful champions in any weight class in the UFC betting.
After defeating Penn in March 2006, St-Pierre has lost only one match going 5-1 over that time period and successfully defending the welterweight belt on several occasions. The lone set back was a loss to Matt Serra whom he defeated in their rematch to defend his belt and become UFC betting’s undisputed welterweight champ.
But BJ Penn has also done alright for himself since the pair’s original UFC betting match up and he’ll be looking to make up for his previous loss at the bet on UFC 94 event. Just as St-Pierre avenged his loss to former champ Serra, Penn will be looking to take a page from his book and emerge from the bet on UFC 94 event as UFC betting’s new welterweight champ. Penn has won three straight match ups and is a champion in his own right, as he currently holds the UFC betting light weight championship belt.
Head to head the two fighters are formidable competition for one another. Both are skilled in the ways of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and have been very successful in past UFC betting matches using their technical skills. However the main difference in this battle will be St-Pierre’s size and wrestling skills. Outweighing Penn by 15 pounds St-Pierre will have a distinct advantage if the fight goes to the mat. Penn will do all that he can to make sure he stays on his feet, but smart money says that St-Pierre retains his UFC betting title.
