Georges St-Pierre is considered by many to be the greatest MMA fighter of all time, but there are a pair of intriguing matchups against others in that GOAT conversation that we never got the chance to see.
St-Pierre, who ruled the welterweight division during his historic title reign, is often compared to the two men who ruled the divisions on either side of the scale; Khabib Nurmagomedov at lightweight and Anderson Silva at middleweight.
Recently, St-Pierre admitted these are two matchups he always wanted, but never came to fruition.
If these fantasy matchups ever occurred, how would St-Pierre have fared against both men? Would the striking of Silva be too much? Would Nurmagomedov’s wrestling still be as effective as it was during his lightweight dominance?
MMA Junkie’s “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Brian “Goze” Garcia, Mike Bohn and Nolan King discussed the topic with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia. You can watch their conversation in the video above, or check out this week’s full episode below.
