Javier Mendez Says Georges St. Pierre vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov Winner Would Be The G.O.A.T.

AKA coach Javier Mendez believes a potential super fight between Khabib Nurmagomedov and Georges St. Pierre would determine the true Greatest of All-Time.

UFC lightweight champion Nurmagomedov and former two-division UFC champion Georges St. Pierre have expressed interest in fighting each other. Mende says whoever wins the potential super fight would be considered the true G.O.A.T.

“Yeah, I think so, and so does Khabib,” Mendez said on Hablemos MMA (via Adam Guillen Jr. of MMA Mania). “The person that beats GSP will be the best of all time... I think so.

“Yeah, it’s a big possibility,” Mendez continued. “He might do that because all the times that I was with him and his dad, they’ve talked about those things: two more fights, 30-0. They want to a legacy fight, then be done and help the other guys that are starting their fighting careers. There’s great fighters, cousins of his who are great fighter like Umar and Usman Nurmagomedov. They're his blood. They’re going to be great fighters. Islam Makhachev too.”

Before any talk of a Nurmagomedov vs. GSP fight can be taken seriously, "The Eagle" must first get past UFC interim lightweight champion Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. A potential St. Pierre fight would mark the first time GSP has competed since defeating Michael Bisping for the UFC middlweight title in the main event of UFC 217.
