In an interview with Match TV (via Bloody Elbow, Khabib Nurmagomedov revealed that he was offered fights with Georges St-Pierre and Nate Diaz at UFC 200, but he turned both fights down.

He said: “Yesterday the UFC called me with a proposal to hold the main bout of the evening against Nate Diaz, or against Georges St-Pierre. They hope that I will take the fight. But it is four days after the month of Ramadan, and it would be hard physically to fight five rounds. I’ll be back in September and October.
