UFC Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov Wants To Fight Georges St-Pierre In November

"He has one or two fights left, Georges St-Pierre is the greatest fighter ever to step in the octagon. That's my opinion," he said.

St-Pierre, whose campaigned at both welterweight and middleweight, appears to be slimming down in view to a move down to 155 lbs, and Khabib feels he can make the weight cut.

"I think he can drop to my weight [155lbs]. It would be interesting to fight him," he added.

"My return will be planned for around November, in New York [in Madison Square Garden]. He's fought there before, and there's a big [Russian] diaspora."

"It's been a few months that my agents are in communication with the UFC to try to make a fight happen [Khabib Nurmagomedov]," he said.

"I know Khabib wanted to fight me and I wanted to fight him. It's not about feeling, it's just about respect, and for me as an athlete, what drives me the most - what is the most exciting for an athlete in combat sports - is to be able to beat someone who seems invincible."

Khabib isn't the only fighter St-Pierre has his eyes on. Speaking on his behalf, famed boxing trainer Freddie Roach has claimed he wants a bout opposite Conor McGregor.

"I think one more. Just one," he told Brendan Schaub when asked if he thinks St-Pierre fights again via Bloody Elbow.

"The Irish boy. He's got a big mouth," Roach added.
