Revealing the will to fight GSP, Khabib takes advantage of the betting table

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.

It was a declaration of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s Canadian fight in April 2021 in the 30th match of his career. Comments received over 14,000 likes and hundreds of responses after only a few hours of posting.

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.

Khabib is on the upper hand compared to GSP in the betting world

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.

Earlier, when asked about the 30th match at Khabib’s wish, chairman Dana White fully supported the champion’s opinion. Even though the fighter was George St Pierre, a retired player from early 2019, not a superstar like Conor.

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs Justin Gaethje return at the end of October

Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s return schedule in the Justin Gaethje match was confirmed by UFC president Dana White in late October this year.

Stopping rumors of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s return after his father died earlier this month, UFC President Dana White confirmed that “Dagestan Eagles” will return to the ring on October 24 this year.

Accordingly, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s rival is still the person who currently holds the temporary belt – American boxer “Highlight” Justin Gaethje. The match will be the light unification championship as expected. Currently, the location and event of this match have not been determined. However, according to the timeline, Khabib vs. Vs. Gaethje will lead UFC 254 or UFC 255.

Earlier, sources familiar with the matter said Khabib had returned to training towards a 30-0 goal and met legendary George St Pierre before retiring. However, Khabib has not confirmed anything about this information.

Khabib has started to return to training to prepare for the match

Initially, Khabib vs. Gathje is expected to lead UFC 253 on 20 September. However, family events have greatly affected the preparation of the match for the Dagestan fighters. Perhaps this is the main reason why UFC decided to reschedule Khabib to fully focus on this match.

The UFC executive, Dana White, insists that the lightweight champion will have the right to choose his opponent in the last match of his career.

Currently, Khabib Nurmagomedov has returned to training after his father’s mourning period. However, his manager revealed very negative news – “Eagle” intends to play only two more games at UFC before retiring.

Of course, this decision partly comes from the influence of Father Khabib when he wants his children to finish their career with 30 victories, the ideal number for an MMA fighter.

According to UFC’s original plan, Khabib Nurmagomedov’s 29th match will be the confrontation with Justin Gaethje in September. As for the 30th opponent, according to Father Khabib’s wishes, it should be the legendary George St Pierre (GSP).

Dana White gave Khabib full control over the final opponent

This is not the first time Dana White has endorsed the Khabib vs. battle plan. George St Pierre. However, the success of the match schedule still came from the Canadian puncher when he had not clearly revealed his intention to return to the ring.

Along with the issue of age, weight is also something that hinders the match. When playing in Lightweight (155lbs) or Welterweight (170lbs), the disadvantage is obviously one of the two boxers before they hit the floor.
