Rory MacDonald Will Not Fight GSP

Rory MacDonald appears to be on the fast track in the UFC welterweight division, but he also has the current champion as a training partner and friend in his training camp.

Seeing what’s happened between Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans, MacDonald puts any questions to rest with a very clear statement – he will not fight GSP.

"We are the children of your rivals,
Holding guns while reading Bibles."

Probably because he won't fight his way to a title shot.

I was about ask you what you meant by that, but I'm assuming you mean he won't win enough fights to get a title shot?

2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

What he means is...GSP might lose the bel;t so.....he won't have to fight him.
But he will fight anyone else for the belt, and he will take the belt.

I don't think Rory's a big fan of the cameras.

I love GSP and MacDonald, but I hate that shit.

It's not a team sport, get over it. The whole Rashad-Jones thing is blown out of proportion as well.

I like Greg Jackson as a coach/trainer too, but if they really do have explicit agreements not to fight each other, thats pure fantasy land thinking, and really detrimental to the fighters, and the sport. I'm watching as a fan, watching young fighters come up, but I have to sit here and wonder who is actually allowed to fight who because of a bunch of back room deals? Bullshit.

MacDonald won't have to worry about fighting GSP for quite awhile, even as good a prospect as he is, but if he actually means it, it's really limiting to his career.

He might not be studying the tapes, but his trainers sure are.

Doesn't look or sound like a fighter with his demeanor, but kid can wreck shop!

I don't get this. If one of my friends told me he wouldn't want to fight me I'd take it as an insult. But I guess we can't force him, can we?


No, seriously. Can we?
