    Rory MacDonald Insists GSP Fight Won’t Happen But Gunning for Carlos Condit Rematch

    “Me and Georges are not going to fight. I mean we are friends and we’re very close training partners, it’s just not going to happen.”

    “I don’t want to sacrifice a friendship and my spot training at Tri-Star, I really feel like being there is making me develop leaps and bounds as a fighter. I wouldn’t disrespect Georges or the gym in that way. I know he has seniority as the title holder, so I just really feel like I’m going to see what happens one step at a time.”
    “I’m fighting B.J. (Penn), I plan on beating him, and we’ll see how the fight with Georges and Carlos goes, either way I plan on getting my rematch with Carlos in 2013, win or lose tomorrow night,” said MacDonald.

    In his first fight with Condit in 2010 after controlling the biggest part of the first two rounds, MacDonald found out exactly what his opponent was made of that night. Condit came out firing in the third and final round, absolutely blasting MacDonald with shots until he finished the fight with only 7 seconds remaining in the round.

    “He beat the (expletive) out of me. That was hard,” MacDonald said about the bout against Condit.

    Well played Sir well played.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.

    He can't help the fact he was put up against Mills. And at least he's not coming off a loss to Che

    He also beat the piss out of Condit for the better part of 2 1/2 rounds. I fully expected Condit to destroy him in less one round and we all know that didn't happen. I'm not taking anything away from either fighter because they're both animals but I really think Rory would beat Condit now.

    I think he can help the fact that he was matched up with Mills.

    Him and his trainer don't want him winning fights that put the title talk into play.

    Also Zahabi doesn't want Rory fighting the Fitch and Kos's of the division yet they wanna spend is much time developing him on the smaller names as they can so hopefully GSP is on his way out the door as Rory's reign is about to begin.

    Smaller names like Diaz Condit and Penn?

    I am not convinced that Fitch or Koschek would be able to keep Rory down and I would bet its Rory that would be on top most of the time if he fought either of them.

    Here is the difference:

    Rory and GSP are training partners. They are also far apart in the rankings. The possibilty of a fight between them has still long ways to go.

    Silva and Jones are not training partners. They are 2 guys who have a man crush on each other and are basing that as their excuse to avoid a match against each other.

    A better analogy would be asking Silva and Machida to fight each other, as they train together and Machida quoted saying a drop to MW is foreseeable.
