Georges St-Pierre responds to Khabib's call to the UFC: "Unfortunately, it's not up to us to decide"

Former middle and middleweight champion of the Ultimate Combat Championships (UFC) Georges St-Pierre is preparing to announce his retirement from mixed martial arts (MMA) at a conference of Special Press to be held tomorrow in Montreal (Thursday, February 21, 2019), Quebec, Canada.

The bomb has prompted UFC's current lightweight champion, Khabib Nurmagomedov, to embark on social media to plead with "Rush" so that he delays the cashing of his 401K until November so that the two men could fight in the Octagon inside.

St-Pierre – who has expressed a real interest in dealing with "The Eagle" in the past – said Ariel Helwani from ESPN that this type of twinning decision does not ultimately fall on the fighters themselves and has sworn to reverse the situation during its press conference.

I just spoke to GSP. He did not want to go into too much detail. I asked about @TeamKhabibThe message was added: "I saw what Khabib wrote and I like it a lot. Unfortunately, these decisions do not belong to us. I will talk about everything at the press conference tomorrow. "

St-Pierre was looking to become the first-ever UFC three-division champion, but UFC President Dana White was at the root of the Canadiens' "one-of-a-kind" fight French, especially after leaving the promotion after defeating Michael Bisping for the 185- strap book at UFC 217 at the end of 2017.

As for Khabib, he is likely to worry about two lighter opponents once he's back in the thick of it.
