Khabib Nurmagomedov is no longer interested in facing Georges St-Pierre.

Prior to his own retirement, Nurmagomedov was targeting a dream fight with his idol in St-Pierre. In the end, it never came to fruition with St-Pierre officially shutting it down by confirming his retirement in 2019.

Nurmagomedov would since retire in 2020 and is now focused on his many business ventures as well as running his Eagle FC promotion.

However, Eagle FC president Shamil Zavurov recently brought up the idea of Nurmagomedov and St-Pierre potentially facing each other in a grappling match.

Khabib Nurmagomedov: I See No Point In Facing GSP Now

That has since been quickly shut down by Nurmagomedov, who sees no point in returning to action or facing St-Pierre at this stage.

Especially in a grappling match.

“I don’t see the point in it,” Nurmagomedov said in a recent social media video. “You can, of course, add fuel to the fire but I don’t want to. I don’t want to promote this topic. ‘Oh, I could return to Eagle FC.’ I don’t want to make it. I want to make PR for league in another format. I don’t think that I’ll return, wrestle with someone. Let others wrestle, who need it.

“Question. Do I need it? In this life, we are not allowed to do everything we want. Your desire may not coincide with what you will do, you can just want it and that’s it. Does it make sense now to talk about my hunger? I do not see the point.”

It looks like we won’t be seeing Nurmagomedov in action in any form of combat sports whatsoever. And “The Eagle” certainly seems content with that.
