Khabib Ponders GSP Fight

Even though Conor McGregor is his next target, UFC lightweight champion is still pondering a potential superfight with former UFC middleweight and welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.

When asked about the potential superfight recently, Nurmagomedov was respectful to GSP, but feels like he’d be the one taking the victory if they did ever square off.

“Georges is greatest competitor in the UFC of all time,” Nurmagomedov said. “Even if we fight, I think it’s going to be a very tough matchup for me, and for him too. I never lose round in the UFC. I think I can give him very tough match. I know you guys love him, but when cage door close I have to smash my opponents.”

“In my mind I think nobody can beat me.”

St-Pierre returned to fighting in November, 2017, in a stoppage victory over Micheal Bisping to take the UFC middleweight title, but the move up in weight caused colitis which would put him back on the shelf.
