Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight and middleweight champion Georges St-Pierre is set to announce his official retirement form mixed martial arts (MMA) during a special press conference to be held tomorrow (Thurs., Feb. 21, 2019) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The bombshell prompted current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov to take to social media in order to plead with “Rush” to hold off on cashing his 401K until November so the two men can engage in fisticuffs inside the Octagon.

St-Pierre — who did express real interest in facing “The Eagle” in the past — told ESPN’s Ariel Helwani that those types of matchmaking decision aren’t ultimately up to the combatants themselves and vowed to spill the beans during his press conference.
