In a new interview with ACA fighter Magomed Ismailov, Khabib Nurmagomedov spoke about many of the names carefully affiliated with his career. He doubted Conor McGregor’s possibilities of making a real comeback, as “a gentleman simply cannot have two primes.” He also expressed doubt about Tony Ferguson, who Khabib painted as much too aged to be an elite Light-weight.
Individuals are two names from his earlier, however. Much more a short while ago, the only chance of seeing Nurmagomedov return to the Octagon appears to be to lie in Georges St. Pierre. Nurmagomedov has prolonged admired “GSP,” and the two have publicly chased a super combat various situations in excess of the several years.
Finally, Nurmagomedov appears to have totally provided up on that bout. “When you say Georges St-Pierre, that identify genuinely motivates me,” Khabib claimed (transcription via MMAFighting). “GSP definitely makes me psyched and so on but it is all above, brother. He’s 40 several years old. Let’s just depart it. For absolutely sure we like him as a human becoming. He is the legend. He is the good representation of blended martial arts. Let it be like this, there is GSP and Khabib.”
With Nurmagomedov himself admitting the St. Pierre fight is useless in the water, the odds of Nurmagomedov returning seem lower than at any time. Despite Dana White’s most effective tries and quite a few callouts from leading contenders, Nurmagomedov is content with his profession and accomplishments.
