Oddsmakers give GSP 3-1 edge over Carlos Condit
Carlos Condit earned the right to face Georges St-Pierre in a title unification bout after dismantling Nick Diaz in a five-round contest this past weekend at UFC 143.
His performance however, was not good enough to convince odds makers that he can get the job done against division champ, GSP.
GSP is expected to return to action in November, at that time his layoff will be approximately 18 months, add a possible rusty champ with a recent knee surgery and rehab, and GSP’s ability to return to his previous form is in question, yet the line still yields in his favor.
Smart on the part of odds makers or are they underestimating “The Natural Born Killer?”Source: bjpenn.com

Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans set for UFC 145
Feb 7, 2012 - The Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans showdown is finally official for UFC 145 on April 21 in Atlanta.
UFC president Dana White on Monday confirmed the bout and tickets for the event at the Phillips Arena will go on sale Feb. 17.
Evans won the light heavyweight title shot by beating Phil Davis two weeks ago at UFC on FOX 2, setting up the much-delayed meeting with his rival, the UFC champion Jones. Jones will be returning from a brief vacation after defeating Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 in December.
On Monday, Jones' coach Greg Jackson said he was still unsure if he would corner Jones against Evans due to Jackson's personal connection with Evans. Evans made his rise in MMA through Jackson's gym, but eventually left when it became clear he and Jones would inevitably meet inside the UFC cage.Source: www.mmafighting.com
