The GSP- Khabib fight rumours are getting stronger and stronger in 2021.
Retired UFC fighter Kenny Florian has stated that a reliable source has told him that GSp has started preparing for the Khabib Nurmagomedov fight.
Florian on the Anik & Florian Podcast on Monday.
“I heard some pretty crazy news over the weekend. I won’t say exactly where it’s from, but it’s from a well-known coach who apparently is aware of a fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and a legend in the UFC, a former two-time champion, Georges St-Pierre.
“Supposedly that is a fight, I don’t know if it’s confirmed, but it is a fight that Georges might be getting ready for and is preparing for. I don’t think he would be getting ready for that or be telling people that he’s going to be getting ready for a big fight unless it was actually happening.”

Nurmagomedov retired from MMA late last year after his dominant defense of his lightweight belt against the very game Justin Gaethje.
Nurmagomedov’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz, has so far denied the rumors on Twitter.
