Georges St-Pierre Preparing For A Massive UFC Super-Fight

Georges St-Pierre is reportedly in talks to return to the UFC and is preparing for a massive super-fight.

That's according to former UFC title challenger Kenny Florian, who says he's heard some "pretty crazy news" regarding a sensational St-Pierre comeback.

Florian shared some major information about a potential super-fight between St-Pierre and Khabib Nurmagomedov.

During an episode of the Anik and Florian podcast, 'KenFlo' claimed that a "well-known coach" said a fight pitting the two UFC legends is in the works.

"I heard some pretty crazy news over the weekend," he told UFC commentator Jon Anik.

"I won't say exactly where it's from but it's from a well-known coach who, apparently, is aware of a fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and a legend in the UFC, a former two-time champion, Georges St-Pierre.

"Supposedly that is a fight that, I don't know if it's confirmed, but it is a fight that Georges might be getting ready for and is preparing for.

"I don't think he'd be getting ready for that or be telling people that he's going to be getting ready for a big fight unless it was actually happening.

"And for me, I think the only fight Khabib Nurmagomedov would come back for would be against a legend of that kind of stature.

"A guy that did many similar things that he did. And you can kind of bill it as a fight between two of the biggest takedown monsters in UFC."

An Octagon showdown between St-Pierre and Nurmagomedov has been mooted for quite some time now.

The Canadian megastar has talked up a fight against the unbeaten UFC lightweight champion who has also expressed his desire to face him.

St-Pierre, 39, hasn't fought since dethroning Michael Bisping of the UFC middleweight championship at UFC 217 back in November 2017, but he's kept himself in phenomenal shape.

And, of course, Nurmagomedov walked away from the promotion after beating Justin Gaethje last October.

UFC president Dana White could dangle the St-Pierre carrot in front of 'The Eagle' in order to lure him out of retirement.

St-Pierre vs. Nurmagomedov would be a monstrous clash and could break a bunch of UFC records.
