“I heard some pretty crazy news, won’t say exactly where it’s from… It’s from a well-known coach who is apparently aware of a fight between Khabib and GSP. Don’t know if it’s confirmed… whether it’s for the 155-pound belt I don’t know, whether it’s confirmed or not I don’t know.”
Khabib vs GSP from Dreams to Reality?
So essentially, Ken Flo is saying he heard the news from a coach (who wished to stay anonymous, obviously), and not one of the fighters. Although saying “well-known” makes me wonder. Could this be one of GSP’s coaches? Kenny went on to say that GSP is “preparing for this fight”, and that he wouldn’t be training unless it was close to being a done deal. However, he goes on to clarify that it’s not confirmed, and he doesn’t know what weight it could take place at. Here enters Khabib’s manager, Ali Abdelaziz…
Hmm, very odd. I don’t actually follow Ali so I don’t know if he usually tweets like that, but the tweet seems so rushed and nonchalant… maybe he’s just denying the rumors until the fight can be signed? Who knows? Stay tuned for more fight fans! The Khabib vs GSP fight may come to fruition after all!
