Dana White Hints at Khabib vs. Georges St-Pierre Super Fight!
In such competitive sport like MMA, big names come and go, but some remain forever. Up till now, Georges St-Pierre is still the most successful welterweight of all time. Furthermore, the title of the most talented fighter of his generation still belongs to him. For now, Pierre’s officially retired. However, many are still stuck on the idea of him fighting against the current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagamedov. What we would have given to get this legendary bout!
From what we know, Khabib has a match with Justin Gaethje in his 29th professional MMA fight. Previously, the champ also shares that if he remained unbeaten at 30, he would retire. If this statement is true, then the Russian fighter only needs to take on one more opponent. Without a doubt, he couldn’t be bothered with the money situation, as he already earned enough. So, the remaining question, in this case, will be who he would agree to fight.
Two names come up this time. Many fans are looking forward to a rematch between Khabib and Conor McGregor. This clash will undoubtedly be box-office. On the other hand, another alternative option is Khabib’s dream of meeting GSP in the cage. Do you think the Canadian will be temp to sign this deal? When speaking on Khabib’s future recently, Dana White has more ideas on what’s next for The Eagle: “I don’t know, obviously he has got this Gaethje fight that is a done deal. He is fighting Gaethje next. I don’t know who his last fight would be to make him 30. No clue, I mean listen, Conor McGregor fight. “I know Conor has always wanted that fight since the last one; I mean that is the fight to make and don’t know we will see how this all plays out. But, the Gaethje one is absolutely, positively the next fight for him.” It looks like we could be looking at a lightweight title unification fight soon.
Open to Georges St-Pierre
The most surprising thing this time is White’s ion to a GSP match. The UFC President claimed that he likes the champion and would repay him if that’s what he wants to make. “Sure. Yeah, it’s the last fight of his career the guy, the guys been great. He’s been great to the company; he’s been great for the sport. And, I like Khabib Nurmagomedov a lot, and I would do anything Khabib wanted to do.”
