Of all the potential super fights that could happen for Khabib Nurmagomedov, Ali Abdelazi believes you shouldn’t hold your breath for one with Conor McGregor.
“90 percent of the time, Dana White will put the best guys together,” Abdelaziz told Yahoo! Sports’ Kevin Iole in a recent interview. “But when it comes to one guy, Conor, I don’t think Dana’s gonna put him against the best guy.”
Abdelaziz believes that McGregor is ducking this fight to avoid putting his reputation on the line. One fighter Abdelaziz sees taking on Khabib is Georges St-Pierre, who has been looking for a legacy fight.
“The whole thing is this: If Khabib goes out there and demolishes him, and that’s what’s going to happen, this whole Conor thing is gone,” he added. “All the aura, all the prediction [expletive] is gone. There’s no more Conor. There’s no more two million pay-per-view buys. There’s no more Floyd Mayweather rematch.”
“You will see Khabib vs. Georges St-Pierre before you can see Conor vs. Khabib.”
