Perhaps Carlos Condit knew what he was doing when he requested a tango with former multi-division UFC champion BJ Penn. According to the Gambling Gods, “The Natural Born Killer” is a slight -125 favorite to extend his winning streak to five when they collide at UFC 137.
Penn comes in just a tad behind as a -115 underdog.
Penn and Jon Fitch fought to a highly controversial draw at UFC 127 this past February. It was the Hawaiian’s second 170-pound contest since getting trounced in back-to-back outings by reigning lightweight king Frankie Edgar.
Condit became one of the hottest names in the weight class after shoving his knee in Dong Hyun Kim’s face at UFC 132. The former WEC champion has won 12 of his last 13 contests.
UFC 137 takes place October 29th inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
