Cross your fingers, because there’s a rumor circulating that Khabib Nurmagomedov may be facing off against Georges St. Pierre in an upcoming UFC fight.
⚡️ KHABIB vs. GSP in the works. This is all that is known at the moment.

The report comes from MMA Team Dagestan, which is a Twitter account that frequently and accurately reports on big MMA matchups (especially that which concerns Nurmagomedov). The rumor would also coincide with Nurmagomedov’s manager Abi Abdelaziz’s tweet earlier yesterday that “big news” would be coming concerning Nurmagomedov.
We will blow your mind big news coming @TeamKhabib 🔥🔥🔥🙏🏻

Nurmagomedov has been the talk of the MMA world since he submitted Conor McGregor at UFC 229 earlier this month. While nothing has been officially confirmed regarding his supposed fight with St. Pierre, the Jiu-Jitsu Times will provide updates as they become available.
