Team Khabib: “We Can Make Georges St. Pierre Fight Happen”

If we talk about the legends of the MMA world, how can we miss out on mentioning Georges St. Pierre? Without a doubt, the guy is the best fighter in the welterweight department. Furthermore, the two-division champ returned to action and claimed the middleweight crown after defeating Michael Bisping in 2017. Previously, he was on a four-year hiatus. 

However, he entered the second hiatus again due to ulcerative colitis. It took the division and promotion two more years to recover from his departure. Now, Georges St. Pierre claimed that he’s interested in a clash with the current lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagamedov. According to Khabib and his team, this is also their dream fight!

Khabib’s coach Ali Abdelaziz said that they could make it work, but St. Pierre will need to take care of three things first. “Pick up the phone and call me, he can call Dana directly. Dana White respects Georges St-Pierre; he likes him a lot. Dana White doesn’t like too many people. Then he has to make 155 pounds, and he has to communicate”. Moreover, it looks like St. Pierre has confirmed that he would be up for the fight.

Communication

On another side, the problem could also lie in UFC themselves. They probably don’t want to make the matchup. However, Khabib’s unbeaten record and those shiny zeros might help to change their mind. Abdelaziz said: “He has a good team, but he always can call me. Everybody can ask what happened in 2017. I communicate people, that’s it. But all the time talking about Georges wants to fight this guy – hey, send a location like Khabib said. Send a phone number; we can make it happen.”
