Georges St-Pierre Admits He Would Come Out Of Retirement For Khabib Nurmagomedov Fight
Georges St-Pierre and Khabib Nurmagomedov is the new fantasy fight in every fight fan’s mind. With “Rush” being the most dominant welterweight of all time, and Khabib quickly establishing himself as the most dominant lightweight in recent memory, the fans have been itching to see who would come out on top between the two. With GSP’s dominant top game, and Nurmagomedov’s smothering wrestling, it is indeed an interesting fantasy fight.
Gorges St-Pierre retired from UFC after winning the UFC Middleweight Championship from Michael Bisping. GSP revealed that he wasn’t in the best of health, and decided to hang up his gloves for a second time. However, he now looks better than he has done in the past, and recently said that he would indeed end his sabbatical to come back for a fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
“If the right fight came along, they know where to find me”, St-Pierre told ESPN (transcribed by MMA Fighting). “We tried to make the right fight but it didn’t work. If everything is aligned contractually, everything is good, as we speak now, yes I would.”
The interviewer specifically asked Georges St-Pierre if it would be Khabib, and GSP confirmed.
Khabib Nurmagomedov recently signed a new deal with UFC, which reportedly included a “GSP clause”, where the terms for the fight have already been decided should “Eagle” fight “Rush” in the future.
Dana White on the other hand hasn’t been sticking to one answer. As things stand, Tony Ferguson will fight Khabib Nurmagomedov next, and depending on what happens in that fight, GSP might have to get into a fight camp for Khabib.
