UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva

While UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre was busy selling 55,000ish seats inside Toronto’s Rogers Centre, the Gambling Gods were fantasizing over what’s in store after he disposes of Jake Shields – as they have professed.

The powers that be peg GSP a colossal 6-to-1 favorite to beat Shields at UFC 129, relinquish the 170-pound crown and move on to challenge middleweight king Anderson Silva in the championship fight to end all championship fights.

If that comes to fruition, which is far from a guarantee (Please see: Fedor Emelianenko), for the first time in forever, St-Pierre will enter the Octagon as an underdog. “The Spider” is an early -185 odds-on favorite to make his ninth consecutive title defense should he and St-Pierre square off.

GSP would make his middleweight debut as a +155 dark horse.

Who are you gonna to lay your money on, Mr. Jake Shields?
