Khabib Nurmagomedov, the reigning UFC lightweight champion is to retire soon and as a last match of his career he dreams to fight against Georges St-Pierre.
This is intriguing because Georges St-Pierre is not known to be an underdog. It is hardly ever that he’s lost a match. But if the match is between the reigning UFC champion and Georges St-Pierre, he might just have to bare the loss.
The UFC President, Dana White is still considering the showdown between St-Pierre and Nurmagomedov. He mentions that he is considering only because the undefeated UFC champion truly wants a fight against St-Pierre as his final match.
The Russian champion’s next fight is scheduled on October 24 against Justin Gaethje but he has already mentioned publicly that he would like to end his career with a fight against St-Pierre. But this public announcement was shot down by Dana White.
Though the fight between the two is nowhere in the vicinity but it seems that UFC, for the first time has made it seem possible.
