Undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov is widely considered the greatest fighter to ever fight in the sport. Khabib beat the daylights out of Conor McGregor in his last fight earning him new heights of fame that he’s never seen before.

Then Khabib’s Dagestan, Russia MMA team posted this to their social media account confirming the talks with Georges St. Pierre:
We reached out to St. Pierre’s camp at Tri-Star MMA who told us that the bout is indeed in the works for January / Febuary as Khabib is expected to recive a $350,000 fine and time served from the NSAC. The plan is for the bout to take place at 165lbs and Khabib to vanquish his lightweight title as he doesn’t wish to make the weight cut anymore. More coming soon.
