Eagle FC president Shamil Zavurov, in his recent interaction with RT Sport, weighed in on a possible grappling match between former UFC Champions Khabib Nurmagomedov and Georges St. Pierre.
Though both the fighters are retired from MMA at the moment, Zavurov is optimistic about a potential grappling contest between the two.
"Khabib is always in shape. I also follow Georges St-Pierre on Instagram and I can see he's always in shape too. Always training. Same for Khabib... He is such a big fan of the sport that he is still in great shape. He's in the United States now and he's working hard with other guys twice a day. It will be exciting but you better ask Khabib,” he told RT Sports.
Khabib announced his retirement from MMA after UFC 254 back in 2020. He retired with a professional MMA record of 29-0 to his name and was the UFC Lightweight champion when he retired.
As for GSP, he retired back in 2017 after winning the UFC Middleweight title from Michael Bisping. Prior to this, GSP had retired in 2013 while he was reigning on top of the UFC Welterweight division. GSP had a professional record of 26-2 at the time he retired.
