“Khabib is the best fighter on the planet at the moment. He fights in the 155 pound division, but I think he is heavier than me. His normal weight is more than my usual weight. He's younger and more successful at losing weight, ”Saint-Pierre told BT Sport.

According to him, he himself has never been a fan of weight-lifting, as he has long departed from its consequences.

“Outside of combat, he goes beyond lightweight, weighing almost 200 pounds. I've never weighed 200 pounds, ”added Saint-Pierre.

Khabib Nurmagomedov's next fight will take place on October 24 at UFC 254. In the title fight, the Russian will meet with American Justin Gaji. In total, Nurmagomedov has 28 victories and not a single defeat in MMA.

Earlier, Saint-Pierre said that he had not received an offer to fight with Nurmagomedov.
