At that stage, he didn't feel like a win over "the Notorious" would improve his resume that much.
While appearing on Submission Radio, Georges St. Pierre discussed the upcoming Khabib & McGregor fight and indicated that he would be interested in challenging the victor of that bout but doesn't believe UFC will allow it.

However, GSP has dramatically changed his tune about facing the Dubliner. The undefeated Russian won the vacant UFC lightweight title against Al Iaquinta at UFC 223 after then-lightweight champion Tony Ferguson pulled out of a scheduled bout with Nurmagomedov due to an injury suffered days before the event. After that bout, St-Pierre relinquished the belt, citing a digestive issue called ulcerative colitis as his reason for being unable to defend it.
Israel Adesanya didn't seem phased by Brunson's attempt of body shaming, and the up-and-comer has impressed UFC fans with his last three fights, which brought him victories over Rob Wilkinson, Marvin Vettori, and Brad Tavares. These two have a heated rivalry, and that feud will be settled on November 3, 2018, at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Interestingly, the NY card does not now have a headline act. It's a legacy upgrade, and it's good money. Fight fans were waiting from so long for this fight to be official, and in fact, it will generate massive PPV record, which is now held by Mcgregor vs. Nate Diaz rematch at UFC 202. Graham Kenny posted to his Instagram story plane tickets to Las Vegas flying out October 5, with a return date to London Gatwick on October 10 along with the caption: "It's on".

In a recent interview, GSP went on record by stating that he believes fighting the victor of this fight would be a win-win situation. Derek Brunson had some momentum going for him in the UFC after claiming a two-fight win streak, but that momentum was stopped when he was knocked out in the first round by Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza last January.
McGregor is returning to UFC, and White said that they were waiting for his legal proceedings to conclude before moving forward. However, I fought at 170, I relinquished the title and I fought at 185, I relinquished the title. When asked about his opinion of the Khabib and Conor fight, he insulted the two fighters. That's where Khabib is the most competent at.More news: Secretary of State Pompeo Meets with Turkey's Foreign Minister in Singapore
