When it comes to welterweight warriors within the sport of mixed martial arts, there are two names that perhaps first surface to the minds of fight fans. Georges St-Pierre and Ben Askren are two of the most decorated welterweights around at the moment, leading some hopeful for a super fight between the two.
Georges St-Pierre quickly made his way to be being one of the UFC’s most dominant welterweight champions to date, with victories over some of the sports toughest and most talented fighters over the years. St-Pierre recently went down in history as being one of the few fighters to ever earn two UFC titles.
Of course, Askren has a decorated fight resume of his own. While the fighter never made his way to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), Askren has also never been defeated in his career.
With 18 victories to his name, Askren would go on to become the ONE welterweight champion. The fighter recently retired after another successful defense of his title.
Retired or not, Askren has been targeting a super fight against Georges St-Pierre as a test of their welterweight might. Now gambling odds for the possible match up have been revealed.
As provided by oddsshark, the odds of Askren and St-Pierre ever meeting inside the cage has been met with -6000 for “no” as an overwhelming favorite. At +1200, the odds have opened up for “yes.”
Only time will tell if these two welterweight warriors will ever meet inside the cage.
