Georges St-Pierre Says Tony Ferguson ‘100 Per Cent’ Deserves Khabib Fight Ahead Of Conor McGregor
UFC legend Georges St-Pierre has snubbed Conor McGregor in favour of supporting Tony Ferguson to challenge Khabib Nurmagomedov next.
Dana White made it clear that Ferguson, 35, would have the chance to take on the lightweight champion.
But even the UFC president refused to rule out the idea of McGregor having his rematch with Khabib should Ferguson snub a title shot.
'GSP,' who retired from MMA in February, has insisted that it should "100 per cent" be Ferguson facing off against the 'Eagle.'
The 38-year-old Canadian told Helen Yee Sports: "And it's going to be a good fight. I'm a big fan. I don't know [who'll win].
"It all depends who's going to fight their fight.
"Tony likes a dirty fight with elbows and knees, that's his style.
"Khabib likes to control guys when he's on the floor with his top game.
"It all depends how it goes down, styles make fights and it's hard to predict."
The undefeated Khabib, 30, picked up a stunning victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 on 7th September and successfully unified the lightweight division.
And the Russian UFC star has openly spoken about his desire for a dream clash with 'GSP,' which included a fight set up for charity.
But 'GSP,' who said UFC turned down the chance to host a fight with Khabib, once again ruled out the idea of coming out of retirement.
"I'm retired, and retired for a reason," he said.
"If anything comes up, the UFC knows where to find me, but right now I'm good where I'm at.
"I can't complain, life is beautiful. I'm always training.
"I'm not training because I have a fight, I'm training because I love to train, I love to be in shape.
"And I keep learning as a martial artist. And I like to keep busy."
Could Ferguson end Khabib's undefeated streak?
