Firas zahabi hopes the fight between his players and Habib Nurmagomedov.

Firas zahabi, the coach of ex-champion of UFC in two weight categories of Georges St-Pierre expressed the hope that the fight between his players and the owner of the title in the lightweight Habib Nurmagomedov.

“Georges St-Pierre returned to training as usual. I think and hope that in 2019 he will return to fighting. Now, as far as I know, there is a super weight in the UFC (74,84 kg). All say a lot about the emergence of a new division. It’s a rumor, but if so, then Georges will be interesting to carry out there fights. Hope it turns out to be true.

I think the best opponent for his debut will be Khabib Nurmagomedov. It would be logical if Habib and St-Pierre played the title in his new weight class. It would be a very tough battle. Both are unbeaten over the years. George Habib more dangerous in the front, and his ability to carry out the unexpected takedown could surprise and Habib”, – quotes the words zahabi BJPenn.

We will remind, in April 2018, a Russian, said he was not against to make the fight with St-Pierre.
