UFC 154 features one of the most compelling fights we've seen in some time. Just four times in the UFC's history has a champion faced an interim champion to unify the title. In this case, one of the greatest pound-for-pound fighters in the world, Georges St-Pierre, will be returning from a long rehabilitation following knee surgery to face interim champ Carlos Condit.

Will St-Pierre be the same dominant champion in his return, or will ring rust from nearly a year's layoff be a factor? I'll consider how this affects the odds and take a look at the numbers behind the fights to see if there are some value bets for Saturday night's card.
