UFC Considering Khabib Nurmagomedov Versus Georges St-Pierre Super-Fight

By Mike Parrott

Khabib Nurmagomedov has revealed that UFC have agreed with his wishes of a future fight with Georges St-Pierre if he beats Justin Gaethje.

A bout between lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and MMA legend Georges St-Pierre has been something both fighters have wanted for a while now, but UFC has been more than reluctant on putting it on.

GSP was previously shut down in his numerous attempts to negotiate, and it was part of the reason he officially retired in 2019.

However, Nurmagomedov has revealed that the UFC would start negotiations with GSP if he is able to beat Justin Gaethje.

"If I beat Gaethje, then in April I could fight St-Pierre," Khabib told Russian media (via MMA Junkie).

"(The UFC) told me that they will negotiate with St-Pierre."

"This is a fight between my dreams and my father," he explained. "Time is ticking, St-Pierre is 40 years old next year, he has to decide whether we will fight or not."

Khabib did also say that if the GSP fight couldn't happen then he'd either fight Tony Ferguson or "whoever beats Dustin Poirier".

"If I don't fight St-Pierre, I'd fight anyone who beats Dustin Poirier next," Khabib said (via RT Sport). "If (St-Pierre) comes back to the UFC and agrees to fight me, I'm fighting him."

St-Pierre, 39, hasn't fought since his 2017 win that made him a two division champion. Prior to that he also had a lengthy four-year layoff.
