There were rumors for more than a year about a potential superfight between reigning UFC lightweight champion??Khabib”The Eagle” Nurmagomedov??and arguably the greatest of all time, Georges”Rush” St-Pierre. Although??Khabib is most probably going to resist No. 1 contender Tony Ferguson next, though he gets through that challenge, GSP could be in the not too distant future.
These rumors appear to be coming to a head and internet sportsbook BetOnline has released chances for this bout Nurmagomedov, with the champ, coming in as also the champ and a large -400 favored , GSP, coming straight back at +300.
This line doesn’t make any sense. Yes, even Nurmagomedov has become a heavy favorite in each of the last 10 fights with an average line of -412.5, and makes sense. He will compete against a few of the best ever in Georges St-Pierre, that has not suffered a loss because 2007, a span of 13 fights. In his look, he even won the title, and he is currently fighting at lightweight! Since he was a +115 puppy a bout he won through knockout, in a rematch in 2006 with Matt Hughes at UFC 65 GSP has never been an underdog.
Nurmagomedov assault is his grappling if he smashes them, drags them and then puts his hands onto his rivals. The Russia native may make the most of a submission when it sounds, or includes pound and an floor, trying to find the end in that fashion. His remarkable proceeds to increase, but a few times have been hurt in exchanges that are dramatic. The Eagle has exceptional conditioning which enables him still smash his foes and to bring the battle to the canvas in the struggle.
As the Canadian he is an excellent wrestler but also has powerful striking. Hurry was the welterweight champion for six years, defending the belt 10 occasions, before returning by submitting Michael Bisping in 2017 to win the middleweight belt and taking off. He’s got a huge jab that sets up heavier strikes or his double-leg takedown and he averages??4.16 takedowns a 15 minutes.
GSP will be 39 in May 2020, which may be a small concern as 32 doesn’t turn . Age aside, though,??the struggle in was in a near unanimous-decision success against Gleison Tibau in 2012. If it stays a game, the edge must go to St-Pierre, but it will be quite interesting to see if his wrestling ability can be imposed by one across another.
