Georges St. Pierre recently noted that Khabib Nurmagomedov, Kamaru Usman and Khamzat Chimaev are three fighters that could make him come out of retirement. The comment from GSP had raised a long list of discussions and now, former UFC Champion Michael Bisping has entered the mix.
Bisping recently gave his take on what will happen if GSP fights Khamzat Chimaev and noted that Khamzat could have the edge.
"There's something about Khamzat. I don't know if Georges could pull that one off because that would be at 170 [pounds]... In my mind, I cannot conjure up the image of Georges beating Khamzat,” he noted [h/t Sportskeeda].
GSP retired from MMA in 2017 after defeating Bisping for the UFC Middleweight title and has not fought since. He holds a record of 26-2 to his name and was on a 13-fight winning streak when he announced his retirement. Prior to his fight with Bisping, GSP had announced his retirement back in 2013 as well after his fight with Johny Hendricks.
GSP retired as the Welterweight champion back then and came back in 2017 to win the Middleweight title making him a double champion in the UFC.
Khamzat, on the other hand, has been on an impressive run so far and is undefeated at the moment. He is currently 11-0 in his professional MMA career and is 5-0 in the UFC with his latest win coming against former UFC Welterweight title contender Gilbert Burns. Khamzat, interestingly, has found success at both Welterweight and Middleweight.
Prior to joining UFC, Khamzat was a mainstay in BRAVE Combat Federation where he had some memorable fights and wins.
