As the two former champs look to clash at UFC 137, the betting lines open showing BJ Penn (-125) as a slight favorite over Carlos Condit (-105). Penn known for being the heavy favorite in most of his bouts, only St-Pierre and Fitch have made ‘The Prodigy‘ an underdog.

With Condit riding a four-fight winstreak in the UFC with three being by brutal finishes, it’s no surprise that Condit is a close betting line. As any sports better will tell you, a close line is not a smart gamble. Much risk, and little payouts when we see these two  battle it out for a possible top contender titleshot in the welterweight division Oct. 29.
