Last Saturday at UFC 242 in Abu Dhabi, UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov successfully defended his title by submitting interim champion Dustin Poirier in the third-round via rear-naked choke.
With this win, Khabib extended his winning record to 28-0 and during the post-fight press conference, he talked about a super-fight with former middleweight and welterweight champion Georges St-Piere and said that if GSP feels the need to improve his legacy, then he is ready to fight him in a charity match in Africa.

"Even if they make $30 million, that's $30 million for one night and give all this money for people."

“George St Pierre is great. A great guy, great champion, and a great athlete. he is very good example for young kids. I know he is retired, but if he wanna come back and if he feel hungry and if he feel he can improve his legacy with fight with me and he can make 155, I am waiting for him.
“…Maybe I can fight with GSP. George St Pierre is very very big star. They can build this arena in next three months. And we can fight somewhere in Congo. And all money we make we can use on charity.” (H/T – SportBible)
GSP last fought in UFC at UFC 217 where he defeated Michael Bisping. Even though Khabib has called out GSP, the weight class at which they fight each other remains an issue as Khabib has previously stated he will only fight him at lightweight.
