The Only Fight That Could Entice Khabib Nurmagoemdov To Return To UFC, According To His Manager

The Only Fight That Could Entice Khabib Nurmagoemdov To Return To UFC, According To His Manager

Khabib Nurmagomedov's manager thinks 'The Eagle' would reverse his UFC retirement decision for a chance to fight Georges St-Pierre.

He remains headstrong in his decision, but Ali Abdelaziz told TMZ Sports that his client would likely 'get himself up' for a clash with fellow legend St-Pierre.

"Honestly, I think if Georges St-Pierre is serious about coming back to fight, I could see it happening, that would get Khabib up," he explained.

Nurmagomedov's father, Abdulmanap, sadly died in July and he always wanted to see his son mix it up with the 39-year-old.

St-Pierre's last fight came in 2017 when he defeated Michael Bisping, before announcing his official retirement in 2019.

'GSP' recently posted photos of his incredible physique on social media, captioned: "After a three-day water fast I always feel like a new man. Have you guys ever tried something like that?"

"I think that when we look at these things and Dana as a promoter and the head of the UFC, that's what he's supposed to do," 'DC' said.

"He's supposed to be hopeful that he gets another Khabib Nurmagomedov fight. Why wouldn't he? I think that's where we are today. I don't know for certain that Khabib is going to fight.

"I don't know if he's not going to fight. I try to keep our relationship a friendship. I don't want to always be talking to him about things about his career because he's a star.

"But if you're Dana White, I think he's playing it the exact way he needs to and I don't know where Khabib is personally. But if you ask me still, I know this guy is a man of his word so I don't know what he's going to do.

"It would have to be Georges St-Pierre. I believe that a big fight is what he would want in order to just prove himself.

"Like you said, Khabib Nurmagomedov is just trying to make history and a win over Georges St-Pierre would do exactly that for him.

"When your resume becomes so big, not many things can add value to it. If he can go and [fight] 'GSP' and beat 'GSP,' that adds value."
