Georges St-Pierre Would Return For Blockbuster Clash With Khabib Nurmagomedov If 'The Deal Is Right'

Georges St-Pierre Would Return For Blockbuster Clash With Khabib Nurmagomedov If 'The Deal Is Right'

Georges St-Pierre has dropped his biggest hint about making a stunning U-turn on his MMA retirement and returning to the UFC octagon to face Khabib Nurmagomedov.

The 38-year-old UFC legend announced his retirement from MMA in February, but he has continuously been linked with a blockbuster clash with UFC lightweight champ Khabib.

When he was asked if he would come out of retirement, the Canadian star told ESPN: "If the right fight came along, they know where to find me.

"We tried to make the right fight, but it didn't work."

'GSP' has previously said that UFC was unable to reach an agreement about booking a dream match with Khabib.

But that didn't stop the MMA legend from teasing UFC president Dana White about ending his retirement and coming back to fight the 31-year-old Russian superstar.

When he was asked about a comeback fight against Khabib, 'GSP' responded: "It depends.

"If everything is aligned contractually, everything is good, as we speak now, yes I would."

Khabib has been vocal about his desire to face 'GSP' and previously called for a fight with him before he announced his retirement.

And the undefeated UFC superstar's manager, Ali Abdelaziz, has also said that he wants the clash to happen in 2020.

Following his dominant victory over Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 last month, the 'Eagle' reignited his interest to fight 'GSP' by saying that he would welcome his return to the octagon.

"Georges St-Pierre is a great guy, a great champion, a great athlete," he explained at his UFC 242 post-fight press conference.

"He's a very good example for young kids.

"I know he retired, if he wants to come back, if he feels hungry, if he feels he can improve his legacy with a fight with me and he can make 155, I'm waiting for him.

"Maybe he likes the new belt. If he likes, I can give him just only for one photo. If he wants to fight, [he's] welcome."
