Before that however, St-Pierre weighed in on the predictions for the fight. St-Pierre gives a slight edge to the lightweight champion.

“If I have to bet, if I have to put my house on it, I would have to choose Khabib over Conor,” St-Pierre said. “Khabib has never lost, he never lost. Conor has lost before, he has lost on the ground, which is where Khabib is good. That’s where Khabib is the most competent at. However, Khabib sometimes is a slow starter and it’s hard sometimes to close distance, he has a problem to close the distance but once he’s got you in the clinch, he’s very good.

“The odds go in Khabib’s favor, maybe 60 to 40 I believe.”
