Thread: Dana White: “I Don’t Think Rory MacDonald Ever Said He Wouldn’t Fight Georges St-Pier

    But the way Zahabi figures it, anyone who wants to start thinking about a MacDonald vs. St-Pierre title fight, the timing might just work out perfectly for a smooth transition. When St-Pierre is ready to hang up the gloves, MacDonald should be just about ready to be a champ in Zahabi's eyes – though he didn't speculate on how soon that might be.

    And the idea of MacDonald seeing just how well St-Pierre does for himself as champion, and having that make him want to put friendship aside to go for the title, doesn't hold water for Zahabi.

    "There's a lot of greed in the world, but not everybody's like that," he said. "There are more important things than money. Rory makes a lot of money, as well. He's very successful. When Georges is retiring, Rory will be nearing his peak, I think. I don't think it's worth making such a show out of it."

    Rory is possibly the only guy I'd be routing for Georges to beat... Lol...that's kind of a good fight for me actually. I dislike both fighters, so no matter who loses I'm kinda happy...

    Rory will likely have to make that desicion soon, hopefully he can be swayed. It's just plain silly to fight in a devision if you won't fight for the belt in it... And it's silly for him to wait for Georges to lose to fight someone else for the belt. Silly and risky. If he refuses to fight the current champ he should switch classes. Just my opinion.

    "I'm going to ask you a question," White told "Inside MMA" reporter Ron Kruck on Friday. "[MacDonald] basically lives in Georges St-Pierre's house, meaning he trains there in his training facility. He lives in Montreal, Canada. Georges St-Pierre says nothing but good things about this guy. What's he going to do? Is he going to run out in front of the whole world and beat his chest and say, 'I want Georges St-Pierre's title, and I'm going to take it from him' and all this stuff? No, he's not.

    "But if you don't think he wants to fight Georges St-Pierre, if you don't think he wants a shot at that 170-pound title, and if you don't think he wants to be the world champion and make the kind of money that Georges St-Pierre makes, you're crazy, my friend."

    White said it simply doesn't make sense for MacDonald, who meets Ellenberger in tonight's FOX-televised co-headliner at Seattle's KeyArena, to even discuss the possibility right now. MacDonald (14-1 MMA, 5-1 UFC) is currently ranked No. 6 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie.com MMA welterweight rankings, and he needs a win over No. 3 Ellenberger (29-6 MMA, 8-2 UFC) to solidify his case for a title shot. But White said that if he gets it, MacDonald could be singing a different tune some Sunday.

    "When you get there, I guarantee you it will be a different conversation," White said. "And I also guarantee you that in no way, shape or form does Georges St-Pierre think that Rory MacDonald doesn't want to fight him."

    Georges St. Pierre has 'secret' plan for 'super fight' future that will 'blow up' the Internet

    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/8/1/457...re-blow-up-mma
    His words (via MMA Fighting):


    "There are things I wanna do in my career and I can't tell you right now -- Rory (MacDonald) as well -- and we have plans. You'll see in time. It's better if I keep it secret then when it comes, it's gonna blow up. We'll see. I'm very interested. 'Super fight' doesn't mean I have to go ... it's 15 pounds between categories. It's a lot of options. We'll see."
