Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Georges St-Pierre Super-Fight Would Settle 'MMA GOAT Debate,' Says Javier Mendez

Khabib Nurmagomedov Vs Georges St-Pierre Super-Fight Would Settle 'MMA GOAT Debate,' Says Javier Mendez

Khabib Nurmagomedov's dream mega-clash with UFC legend Georges St-Pierre would allow him to establish his status as the MMA GOAT if he wins, according to his coach.

But Khabib has previously admitted that he wants a super-fight with 'GSP' and is targeting a clash with the former two-division champ in April 2021.

The Russian star's coach, Javier Mendez, believes that his fighter could be considered the "best of all time" if he defeats 'GSP.'

The American Kickboxing Academy founder told Hablemos MMA: "Yeah, I think so, and so does Khabib.

"The person that beats 'GSP' will be the best of all time; I think so."

'GSP,' who retired from MMA in 2019, hasn't fought since his sensational comeback victory over Michael Bisping at UFC 217 in 2017.

Khabib's coach added that it would be highly likely that the 'Eagle' would push for the 'GSP' fight should he defeat Gaethje later this year.

"Yeah, it's a big possibility," Mendez said.

"He might do that because all the times that I was with him and his dad, they've talked about those things: two more fights, 30-0.

"They want a legacy fight, then be done and help the other guys that are starting their fighting careers.

"There's great fighters, cousins of his who are great fighters like Umar and Usman Nurmagomedov. They're his blood. They're going to be great fighters. Islam Makhachev, too.

"So he wants to help them get to the title. I don't think he'll fight beyond that, but anything is possible.

"I was a fighter too and when you're finishing a career, you feel it in your heart, you want to fight more and it's hard not to fight. I don't think he'll continue fighting, but anything is possible."
