Undefeated since 2007, Georges St. Pierre will look to extend his win streak to nine when he defends his UFC Welterweight championship against No. 1 contender Jakes Shields at UFC 129. It’s fitting that the first ever UFC betting event to be held at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada features some homegrown talent, and Mark Hominick is actually from the Toronto area, fans in the city have already embraced the Montreal, Quebec-native St. Pierre as one of their own.

  • Georges St. Pierre vs. Jake Shields
  • Saturday April 30, 2011 – 9:00 PM ET
  • Online Sports Betting Odds: St. Pierre – 200

St. Pierre will look to add Shields to an already impressive list of names that he has beaten over the years. The former Strikeforce champion’s win streak actually extends further back than St. Pierre’s, something the titleholder will look to change by handing Shields his first loss since 2004.

UFC Betting Preview: St. Pierre

A black belt in Kyokushin, Gaidojutsu, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, St. Pierre ranks among the most dominant pound-for-pound fighters in the world, with his resume testament as to why. Eight of his 21 career wins have been clinched via knockout while another five were taken by submission, a line that becomes even more impressive when you consider the fighters that he has beaten. Former champions Matt Serra and BJ Penn are on that list, as well as Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck twice. St. Pierre’s most impressive asset is his ability to adjust to his opponent, and it seems as though his studies and training always have him ready for whoever is next in line. If the champion can successfully defend his title for a sixth consecutive time, there will be little left for him to do in the UFC Welterweight division.

UFC Betting Preview: Shields

The 32-year old is one of the few fighters considered to be near the top of the welterweight division that St. Pierre has not already taken down, and while many feel that he will soon move to the other side of those lists, Shields and his camp believe he has what it takes to score an upset. A black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and former NCAA Division II wrestler, Shields dominated both the EliteXC and Strikeforce albeit against weaker competition, but knows full well he will need to step his sports betting bonus game up to the highest level to counter St. Pierre.

UFC Betting: Matchup & Pick

Regardless of who he has fought over the years, St. Pierre has altered his style to fit his opponent and dominated in more ways then one. The champion will likely stand up and throw with Shields the same way that he did with Koscheck, and unless Shields can move this fight could be over before the bell tolls to end the second round.
