The odds on who will win the UFC welterweight belt may not be finalized yet, but you can bet the former champ, Georges St. Pierre, will be watching.

St. Pierre beat Johny Hendricks in what most say was a questionable decision at UFC 167 in November before announcing his indefinite leave from the octagon in December. Hendricks faces Robbie Lawler in UFC 171 in Dallas on Saturday and GSP has already made his pick.

“I believe Hendricks will have a slight advantage in this because of his background in wrestling,” St. Pierre told QMI Agency while in Toronto recently promoting his role as Bacardi's Social Responsibility Ambassador.

“I’m a fan of the sport and I like to see some guys fight, these two guys are very good.”
