Mixed martial arts fans will have to adapt to this idea: Quebecman George Saint-Pierre will not face Habib Nurmagomedov.
The duel failed, and the former middleweight and middleweight champion announced that he will retire in 2019.
If this is a condition for Nurmagomedov to return to the game, President Dana White finally opened the door in January. However, for “GSP”, the leader questioned this possibility, not denying that age has begun to increase.
“When you say George Saint-Pierre, the name really motivates me. “GSP” does excite me, but the brothers are over,” Nurmagomedov told the MMA Fight Center on Monday. This situation is very disappointing.
“He has [bientôt] Let us leave it for 40 years. Of course, we love him as a human being. He is a legend. It is a decent representative of mixed martial arts. That’s it, there is GSP, there is Habib. “
Nurmagomedov also announced his retirement after defeating Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 last October.
