With Georges St. Pierre reigning high above the rest in the UFC’s welterweight division, it’s plausible that teammate and training partner Rory MacDonald could find himself in a spot where he is the number one contender to the title.
GSP touched on the matter this week during a UFC tour stop in Las Vegas and gave his thoughts on a potential bout:
“Rory and I are friends, I don’t know what to say. I’m friends with Rory you know? We text, we call each other, we’re friends.”
“This is that hypothetical world, the reporters you guys want a story to make a conflict happening between me and Rory,” parried St-Pierre. “It’s not going to happen. Rory and I are tight, we’re friends. There’s many ways of doing this.
“Maybe I might go up, maybe he might go up, there’s many other options. I have plans for my career. I cannot tell you everything, guys. There are other things. I don’t want to fight Rory.”
