Upon revealing his intention to confront George St Pierre, Khabib received great support from the betting community when rated higher.
The return of Khabib Nurmagomedov in late October was confirmed by UFC president Dana White. However, besides the match of course must take place with Justin Gaethje to protect the throne, another opponent is also expected to be the last name encountered “Eagle Dagestan”. That is the legend, former two-weight champion George St Pierre.

George St Pierre is the name Khabib wants to face in the last match
As soon as Khabib had news of his return to the will of confronting George St Pierre, bookmakers around the world announced the odds for this match.
Accordingly, Khabib is superior to (-200) compared to (+170) of George St Pierre. According to this calculation, a mermaid needs to put $ 200 in order to get $ 100 in case Khabib wins. Conversely, if you just bet $ 100, the bet will earn $ 170 if the winner calls the name GSP.
It can be said that Khabib is more appreciated because he is at his peak of form and in the continuous playing time from 2018 to the present. In return, after a long break from 2017, age has prevented George St Pierre from receiving too much confidence for a victory.

More interestingly, also in Joe Rogan’s post, Conor McGregor – Khabib’s rival did not show interest in this match. He only leaves a sentence referring to the cause of his previous defeat against the champion.
