Georges St-Pierre has officially moved on from the possible Khabib Nurmagomedov fight.

The two were linked to a possible fight for quite a while, yet the UFC was never interested in the fight. Now, ‘GSP’ says the fight will not happen.

“We worked very hard, my agent knocked at the door, we asked many times. But, the UFC did not want to do it,” St-Pierre said to Chael Sonnen. “My goal was to be the first to champ-champ-champ, that is what we wanted to do. Unfortunately, it fell through and (we) asked if we could do it at a catchweight and the UFC didn’t want it.”

Although it is a fight Georges St-Pierre really wanted, he says he is not focusing on that anymore and is happy being retired.

“Now, it is over. I missed the train and the train is gone. I don’t think it will happen,” he explained.

St-Pierre last fought back at UFC 217 where he won the middleweight title against Michael Bisping. With the win, he became a champion in two different weight classes and wanted the Nurmagomedov fight to make it three.

Khabib Nurmagomedov, meanwhile, will look to defend his title against Dustin Poirier in the main event of UFC 242. He will be looking for his second title defense in what will be his first fight since he beat Conor McGregor at UFC 229.

What do you make of Georges St-Pierre saying the Khabib Nurmagomedov fight will not happen?

Daniel Cormier was looking to defend his heavyweight title for the second time in the main event of UFC 241. There, he was rematching Stipe Miocic in their fight from last summer at UFC 226 where ‘DC’ won by first-round knockout.

Early on, Cormier was winning the fight and was up 30-27 on many media scores. He was landing the harder shots, took Miocic down and was having his way with him.

But, in the fourth round, Miocic switched game plans and started to attack the body which really started to hurt Cormier. Then, after multiple body shots, it was all over as Miocic attacked the head, wobbled ‘DC’ and then finished him on the ground. Just like that, Stipe Miocic was the new heavyweight champ while Daniel Cormier is not.

Following the loss, many pros reacted to the fight, but one of Cormier’s closest friends and training partners in Khabib Nurmagomedov took to Instagram to give his thoughts.

“The winner has many friends, but a person who lost has real ones.
Keep your head up, you already proved that you are one of the best who ever compete in this sport @ufc” — Nurmagomedov on Instagram.

What is next for Daniel Cormier is unknown. But, as Nurmagomedov writes, ‘DC’ is one of the best to ever do it.

What do you think will be next for Daniel Cormier after UFC 241?

Everyone is talking about Conor McGregor’s recent bar incident after footage of the events leaked online yesterday (Thurs. August 15, 2019).

McGregor apparently got into a dispute with an elderly man in an Irish pub back in April. The man allegedly refused to share a drink of McGregor’s Irish Proper 12 whiskey. McGregor responded by punching the man in the face before quickly being escorted out of the facility.

TMZ caught up with McGregor rival and UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov to get his reaction to the news. Khabib said he believes McGregor, who was not arrested after the incident, needs to be held accountable by the Irish government.

“You guys caught this today?,” Khabib asked. “Because, like crazy, like, all media stay quiet, nobody post about this. I can’t imagine if I punch this guy how many media going to post and talk about this bad about me. This is really really bad thing. Even if old guy, like this guy on video, even if this guy punch your face 10 times, you can’t punch this guy face. You can’t. This is, like, impossible, we have to respect old people. I no understand.

One friend send me message. He said, ‘Hey, you remember when he tried to give you his whiskey, like, alcohol, and you don’t take this. But why he don’t punch you? Now he go crazy with old people?’ I don’t understand this. I think these people have to go jail. Have to go jail. I think – this happened in Ireland? What happened about Ireland government?

Hey, we guys from Russia, everyone have problem with visa. We guys have problem but why, like, these bullshit guy don’t have problem with visa in USA? How come USA can give him visa or something like this, respect, or job, or something like this. Like these people have to go jail. I told you guys, this guy has no class, no respect, this is very bad for sport. Some things he do good for sport, but right now he’s without his mind, he lose his mind. It’s crazy.

Government have to smash him, this is my opinion, because I’m really really mad about this video. I don’t understand how you can punch old man, how you can punch him? Even if he punch your face 10 time, 20 time, hey this is big disrespect. Not only for this old guy, this is big disrespectful for all people.”

When asked if he has anything to say to McGregor, Khabib refused. However, “The Eagle” did have a message for the Irish government, saying, “send him location.”

“I don’t want to say nothing to him, I just want to say, Ireland government, where are you guys?,” Khabib asked. “Send him location, and that’s it.”

Khabib was pressed with the question of whether or not McGregor should be jailed for his actions, to which the Russian responded, “100 percent.”

“100 percent [Irish government should arrest Conor],” Khabib said. “Okay, today he punches old guy. What’s going to happen tomorrow? Nobody know this.”
