With the news that Khabib Nurmagomedov may retire after completing the last 2 fights on his contract, Dana White has opened up the *possibility* of granting Khabib’s wish to fight Georges St. Pierre. Khabib would obviously have to get past Justin Gaethje first, in a fight expected to go down later this year (Oct-Nov).
If the UFC was able to book this fight at Lightweight (GSP has confirmed he can make the cut) how would you see it playing out and think about the greater ramifications to the MMA world.
• GSP could win a Title in a THIRD Weight Class, which would put him at the top of the class in the ? debate
• Khabib would beat a ? and in the process retire undefeated at 30-0, which would put himself in the ? debate.
• It would answer the debate of who has the better MMA wrestling from 2 of the best wrestlers in the organizations history.
It’s a fight both men have wanted for years, but the UFC has been unwilling to book.
2021, that could all change.
