Georges St-Pierre tells UFC to get in contact with him if they're serious about making blockbuster Khabib fight

GEORGES ST-PIERRE has urged the UFC to get in contact with him if they're serious about making a super-fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov has been campaigning for a legacy fight with the former two-division champion ever since claiming the lightweight throne in April 2018.

But UFC supremo Dana White recently claimed the Russian is no longer interested in facing GSP, a suggestion the recently-retired 155lb king has since dismissed.

And St-Pierre has told the promotion to stop playing games if they want to book the mega-fight.

During an appearance on Michael Bisping's Believe You Me podcast, he said: “If the UFC would want me back, it’s not me that would go and try to beg for a fight.

“‘Hey please, can I come back?’ They’re gonna lowball the sh-t out of me. It would be the most stupid thing I can do. And you understand that as a fighter.

“If they have an offer to make to me, an offer I cannot refuse, they know where to reach me."

St-Pierre's stance on taking a blockbuster fight with the undefeated Nurmagomedov – which he tried to land before retiring from MMA in February 2019 – appeared to wane last year.


The Canadian was shocked by the criticism he received for his apparent U-turn, adding: “I hear a lot of fans, ‘Oh, GSP, why doesn’t he…’

"It’s because I don’t need this stress in my life anymore. I’m good where I am.

"But contemplating the idea of fighting against who’s the greatest right now, it’s Khabib, things would need to be lined up right in order for me to consider it.”

A fight with St-Pierre is likely the only bout that would tempt Nurmagomedov to end his retirement from MMA, which he announced last October after beating Justin Gaethje at UFC 254.

St-Pierre would contemplate accepting the fight if he were presented to him, although he wouldn't agree to it being a lightweight affair.

He said: "I could think about it seriously if the conditions are right in terms of the weight class and all that, but there’s no way I’m gonna go down to 155 now.

"I’m 39 years old and this is out of the window."
