It’s tough to place your best on any type of martial arts. However, making good bets on the martial arts means doing your homework and taking a risk. For example St-Pierre is heavily favored in the welterweight title bout, by just about 2-1 odds at the moment, but Hendricks is a solid contender.
One thing about the reigning champion is that he has been injured lately. These injuries have kept him out of competitions against some of the best of the current crop of contenders. We know that Georges has the heart to win, but it remains to be seen if his body is in condition to allow him a record-breaking title win.
The main chances that Hendricks has are his reliance on his great left hand and the fact that he’s a great wrestler. There is some slight chance that he can simply keep pounding St-Pierre down to win the fight. Bug the big money is still on St-Pierre.
If you’re with the crowd, betting on Georges St-Pierre, or if you’re betting on the underdog, Hendricks, make sure you order the paid event. It’s a great chance to watch history in the making no matter which one of these tough contenders wins.
George has enjoy an unprecedented welterweight title reign as champion, but Hendricks seems to bring all the right stuff to the ring to keep the French Canadian on his toes. However, if George St-Pierre does manage to keep his total, he will have set plenty of records.
Records Set If St-Pierre Beats Hendricks
– The most total victories
– The most title-bout victories
