St. Pierre called Beterbiev his friend

Jord St. Pierre, former UFC champion in two weight classes, called Artur Beterbiev, the WBC, WBO, IBF flyweight champion who holds Canadian citizenship, a friend.

"I have a friend - Artur Beterbiev. He was kind of born in Dagestan, but he is Chechen by nationality. All the guys from this region are strong in wrestling, in boxing. Yes in all kinds of martial arts," said St. Pierre in an interview with Tristar Gym.

We will remind, on October 12, Beterbiev will have a fight with Dmitry Bivol, WBA world champion.
