Dana White Lied to GSP About Khabib Nurmagoemdov Fight

Khabib Nurmagomedov vs GSP is one of the biggest fights the fans were not able to witness.

Both GSP and Khabib wanted to fight each other a few years ago.

However, Khabib Nurmagomedov announced retirement after his win over Justin Gaethje.

Surprisingly, Dana White offered GSP a potential fight against Khabib Nurmagomedov after Khabib's retirement.

But, GSP believes Dana White lied to him about the Khabib Nurmagomedov fight.

"The way Dana talked to me it was like Khabib already accepted. But it wasn't true. He was just going to fish with me to make the fight happen. So they knew now we were both retired, so for them, it was an opportunity to make a big money fight."- GSP said during his appearance on the PBD podcast.

"Dana kind of lied to me. They didn't approach Khabib first. They approached me first."- GSP stated.

However, GSP does understand that Dana White did so to bring Khabib out of retirement and make a huge legacy fight happen.

GSP also said that Dana White offered him the Khabib fight in order to justify UFC not allowing GSP to box against Oscar De La Hoya.

At the moment, GSP has no aspirations to compete in combat sports.
