Dana White don’t seem to make his mind up on Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Georges St-Pierre. “We just hired GSP — he’s the French commentator for us now. That’s more what I’d like to see GSP doing.”

‘Rush’ recently secured a UFC commentary gig for Canadian French TV channel RDS and White thinks the pound-for-pound great would be better suited for commentary in retirement. “Well, let’s see what happens with Gaethje,” White told TSN’s Aaron Bronsteter recently (h/t Abhinav Kini of The Body Lock MMA).

“That fight’s got to happen first. We just hired GSP — he’s the French commentator for us now. That’s more what I’d like to see GSP doing. You don’t see too many athletes who go out on top,” he added. “GSP has done that, done it very well. He’s got the money, he doesn’t need the money. He’s working for us now in a different capacity and I’d love to see him go out on top.”

St-Pierre retired last year after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis but the former UFC welterweight and middleweight champ has hinted at a comeback for the Khabib fight.
