“You didn’t hear Georges jump in and say, ‘I will not fight Rory MacDonald.’ The way I look at that situation is, Georges is the king, he’s got the belt, he’s known as one of the greatest welterweights ever. The guy is a superstar worldwide, makes a shit-load of money (and) he’s got major massive endorsements. Does Rory MacDonald want to be that guy? Or, does he want to say, ‘I like Georges. He’s a nice guy and I’ve trained with him and stuff, so, I’ll just sit around and never see how great I really am.'”
During yesterday’s post-press conference media scrum, the UFC boss touched on a possible teammate vs teammate match up between Rory MacDonald and GSP.
But will this fight ever truly happen? e
