Georges St-Pierre says he wish he had the chance to fight Anderson Silva and Khabib Nurmagomedov

The legendary Georges St-Pierre has fought the best of the best, but says these two legends are opponents he wish he had the opportunity to fight in his MMA career.

The UFC Hall of Famer widely is regarded as one of the greatest fighters in history, but two superfights eluded him: former UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva and retired former UFC lightweight champ Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“I always wanted to be known as the best and be the best, and there are two fights that never materialized that could have been made – but for certain reasons did not materialize,” St-Pierre said in an interview with Helen Yee. “The first one was against Anderson Silva, and the other one was against Khabib, but for certain reasons it did not happen.”

When asked why those fights never happened, St-Pierre said all parties involved couldn’t come to an agreement.

“When you’re a fighter, you need the two fighters and the promoter to make a fight happen,” St-Pierre said. “Even if the two fighters want, but the promoter doesn’t make it happen, it’s not going to happen. Each fighter brings their terms that they want, then they negotiate, and then it’s up to the promoter to make that happen. It did not happen for these two guys.”
