Khabib Nurmagomedov Urges GSP to Postpone Retirement for November Fight

Dillon Danis scheduled for NSAC hearing on UFC 229 brawl

The press conference will be held at the Bell Centre, which served as the backdrop to many of St-Pierre's biggest fights in the UFC and that is also where he will officially walk away from mixed martial arts for good. White's argument was that St-Pierre could potentially win the lightweight title and then create havoc in the division by doing the same thing again if he got past Nurmagomedov.

Nurmagomedov (27-0) is now serving a nine-month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his actions in a post-fight brawl following his UFC 229 victory last October over Conor McGregor, which set a new MMA record for pay-per-view buys at a reported 2.4 million.

Khabib Nurmagomedov has urged Georges St-Pierre to reconsider his retirement plans and fight him before he calls it quits on his career - and the veteran Canadian has responded to the offer.

Let's do it in November. "I grow up on your fights, and have nothing but respect for you, and I believe I showed that to you George when you were in Moscow".

He would ultimately run out of partners, though, as Southee returned to dismiss captain Mashrafe Mortaza and Mehidy Hasan Miraz. Nathan Astle (7090), Martin Guptill (6440) and Brendon McCullum (6083) round out the top five.

But St-Pierre, while expressing appreciation of Nurmagomedov's offer, intimated to ESPN that his decision was final.

'But, it would be honor for me to share Octagon with one of the greatest fighters of all time'. After this fight you can retire. Well, it's your choice 155 or 160, Montreal, NYC, Moscow or Abu Dhabi. "Unfortunately, these decisions aren't up to us".

The Bisping fight was St-Pierre's first since stepping away from the sport four years earlier after a memorable run as welterweight champion. "I will address everything at the press conference tomorrow".

Although GSP's name has been linked with other fighters over the past year regarding a possible return, St-Pierre has maintained publicly that he would only come back for a fight that would elevate his legacy.
