GSP: MacDonald will be a champion, but I have no interest in fighting him

by Dann Stupp and John Morgan | source:

"I'm not interested in fighting him," St-Pierre said. "There are a lot of welterweights. I don't think we need to do it now. In two years, who knows? I may go to middleweight. Who knows what's going to happen?"

St-Pierre and Condit both train with Greg Jackson, and they're going to fight later this year. So what makes MacDonald different?

According to St-Pierre, he and Condit haven't ever really been training partners. MacDonald, meanwhile, is both a training partner and friend. And for a guy who has a hard time disliking people, fighting a friend just isn't a possibility worth a discussing.

"I have a hard time fighting guys I like already," he said. "When I fought Jake Shields, I had a hard time fighting him. So fighting a friend? I can't do it. Right now, there are so many guys right now, it's not an issue.

"But I know one day [MacDonald] is going to be world champion."

Then GSP won't move up since his friend is at 185, so won't fight Silva?

"I might be at middleweight..." (Just as soon as Silva retires....he's 37..can't be long now...can it?)

Since Cory just moved to montreal from bc to  train at tristar didnt he say that he lives in the guest room at GSP's house? if so that would be pretty awkward if he said yeah we will fight! and then next day show him moves on how to be better heh.

gsp gotta get through condit first and the likelyhood of him coming back as good straight away after an acl is very low
