Watch: Khabib Nurmagomedov Surprised By Georges St-Pierre, Met On Stage At Arnold Sports Festival

Two of the sports’ most decorated fighters Khabib Nurmagomedov and Georges St-Pierre met each other this past week during Arnold Sports Festival in the UK.

Nurmagomedov attended a festival event in the UK and was interacting with the host on the stage when St-Pierre emerged from backstage and put a friendly rear-naked choke on the Russian.

Nurmagomedov was a bit startled by this act initially, but when he turned around and saw GSP, he couldn’t help but laugh.

Previously, Nurmagomedov who retired almost a year ago with a perfect record of a 29-0 and UFC lightweight title had expressed his desire to fight St-Pierre, but the two never crossed each other paths in the UFC octagon.

Both legends are regarded as one of the greatest fighters to ever step to ever fight in their respective division and share a great respect for each other.

Prior to UFC 266 last month, St-Pierre was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame and it’s very likely that Nurmagomedov will soon follow his path.
