St Pierre Diaz Betting Predictions – St. Pierre, Diaz Ready For UFC 158 Title Clash

Posted by Jack "The Hammer" Howard on 3/11/2013 7:22:30 PM

Some things in life are better to late than never at all, and that is also true for the world of Mixed Martial Arts. So when it was announced that UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre will defend his title against Nick Diaz in the main event at UFC 158, sports betting fans were happy they would finally get to see a fight more than a year in the making finally go down. St. Pierre will defend his title for the second time since returning from an extended absence due to injury when he takes on Diaz, one of a handful of exciting tilts to look forward to at the UFC 158 event.

(23-2-0) Georges St. Pierre vs. Nick Diaz (26-8-1)
Welterweight Championship

St. Pierre spent more than a year away from the Octagon after tearing his ACL, and even he admitted that the time away hurt his performance when he successfully defended his title against former interim champion Carlos Condit at UFC 154 in Montreal last November. St. Pierre was caught with a couple of big blows that nearly ended the fight, but he managed to hold on and clinch another unanimous decision win, which he earned with his ability to control the fight from the outset with the exception of a couple of moments where Condit surprised him. St. Pierre talked about how important it was to get that first online sportsbook win following his return and has trained hard to make sure he will be even better when he takes on Diaz. That makes the situation even tougher for the challenger, who will have to deal with some rust of his own following a year absence after missing 12 months following a positive drug test.

UFC Betting Pick: Georges St. Pierre - 430

(28-6-0) Carlos Condit vs. Johny Hendricks (14-1-0)
Welterweight Division

The former interim champion gave St. Pierre all that he can handle in that title fight, and as much as many online betting fans felt that Hendricks was next in line for a shot at the championship, this will be an excellent test to see which fighter is more deserving. Hendricks has won five-straight fights in the UFC including two first-round knockouts in his last three tilts, but he has never fought an opponent as tough or as talented as Condit, and he could be in for a surprise if he doesn’t end things in the opening round.

UFC Betting Pick: Carlos Condit + 115

(28-6-0) Jake Ellenberger vs. Nate Marquardt (32-11-2)
Welterweight Division

The top two fights on the main card have a UFC champion and a former interim UFC champion in action, but even before those two tilts the fans will be on their feet to see a former Strikeforce champion as he looks to make a successful return. Marquardt won the Strikeforce Welterweight championship after leaving the UFC, but since he competed as a middleweight the first time around, it’s hard to know what to expect of him. Ellenberger was being touted as the next big thing in the division before he was knocked out by Kampmann, and although he did bounce back with a unanimous decision win over Jay Hieron, we have to wonder if he will ever be the same.

UFC Betting Pick: Nate Marquardt + 145

(18-5-0) Chris Camozzi vs. Nick Ring (13-1-0)
Middleweight Division

At 34-years old, Ring isn’t being touted as a future star in the UFC middleweight division, but he has won 13 of his 14 career fights including a unanimous decision over Court McGee at UFC 149. Camozzi is younger and more versatile, and he should be able to extend his streak to four-straight wins with another victory in this bout.

UFC Betting Pick: Chris Camozzi - 130

(7-3-0) Mike Ricci vs. Colin Fletcher (8-2-0)
Heavyweight Division

Even before the welterweights try and put on a show, the heavyweights will be out throwing bombs and getting the crowd on their feet. Ricci has lost two of his last three, but four of his seven wins have come via knockout, and Fletcher didn’t look particularly dominant in a unanimous decision loss to Norman Parke back in December.

UFC Betting Pick: Mike Ricci + 140
