“I don’t think that Rory ever said he wouldn’t fight GSP. Rory said he doesn’t want to talk about fighting GSP. I don’t think he’s ever said he won’t fight GSP. When that day comes, when he gets to that place where it’s time for GSP vs. Rory MacDonald, I’m sure that’s when Rory MacDonald will want to talk about fighting GSP.”
UFC President Dana White stated that whoever wins the Ellenberger vs. MacDonald fight is very close to a shot at the UFC welterweight title.
The Boss also believes that Rory may face his longtime mentor should he get the chance.
