Vegas odds on Penn-St-Pierre fight
Georges St-Pierre weighed in Friday at the welterweight limit of 170 pounds for his Saturday night Ultimate Fighting Championship title defense at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
St-Pierre, 27, is a -165 favorite to defeat opponent B.J. Penn, the UFC's lightweight champion.
Bettors can earn $145 on a $100 bet if Penn wins, an MGM Grand spokesman told me Friday.
A shot worth taking?
No gambling advice here, but when I was text messaging former UFC champion Chuck Liddell earlier this week, he told me he likes Penn to wear down St-Pierre.
