GSP: Rory MacDonald ready for title shot

February 27, 2014

Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre recently appeared on Sportsnet and said Rorry MacDonald is ready for a title shot.

"I think so, I think he is, said GSP. "I think Rory will be champion soon. His loss to Lawler make him much better, I believe. I believe he's got all the tools to become world champion, and I think he will."

GSP was asked if he would be attending UFC 171 on March 15 to watch Johny Hendricks and Robbie Lawler fight for the UFC welterweight championship.

"I'm not going to go live to the fight because I'm taking a break right right now about this. But I'm going to watch it. They both have the power to knock each other out standing up. I see Johny as having a little advantage in the wrestling and grappling department, because of his experience.

"They're both southpaws but it's going to be interesting. Sometimes we can speculate how the fight will go and everything, but it all comes down to the night of the fight. You never know what's going to happen 100%. You don't know what's going in these guy's life. Sometimes things can affect a fight. You don't know. You have to go behind the scenes and see but we'll find all that out the night of the fight."
