The fight was OK...nothing more.
Rory looked sharp, he didn't inflict much damage but he also didn't take any and stuffed all takedowns except one.

Did Rory and GSP agree not to fight each other if it came down to it?

Sort of. Rory has been making some very open ended statements followed by a single closed one when surrounded by his coaching staff. I think if Rory was offered a title shot he would take it. Not because I think negatively of Rory, just that as a fighter that belt has got to be everything. To turn it down and possibly never get another shot at it for whatever reason fear would have to be massive.

Right, that's what I thought too.
Rory seems like the type of guy who would not let anything stand in his way. I'm just wondering, if this were to happen, would we see a similar situation like we did with Rashad/Bones? Faras would only be able to train one guy. Either Rory or GSP would have to separate themselves from Tri Star.

I think Tri Star would tell Rory to go train somewhere else for this fight and to come back afterwards. Faras's loyalty to GSP appears to be unbreakable. Not saying he hasn't shown the same love to Rory, but I imagine he views GSP as his shining star and he will not forsake him for another.

Firas and GSP are close friends, Firas ks who got Georges into MMA.
