Georges St-Pierre concedes that Rory MacDonald is a friend, but says that the criticism of 'Ares' following his fight with Jake Ellenberger is unwarranted.

"I believe it was a great fight," St-Pierre said at the UFC World Tour 2013's Monday stop in Las Vegas. "I texted Rory and said it was a great fight. He stuffed a very, very dangerous opponent in Jake Ellenberger. A lot of people give him criticism, but the truth is – and it's not only because Rory is my friend and training partner – the truth is we all knew by watching the fight Rory was winning that fight.

"He was doing well. He was beating Jake Ellenberger. It was up to Jake to take a risk to change the momentum of that fight. If you're winning the fight, if you're doing well and winning, it is up to your opponent to change the momentum and to capitalize. Everyone knew he was losing the fight."

"For someone that knows fighting, I believe it was a great fight. On the other side, for Jake, I don't believe it was a great fight for Jake. I believe Jake should have done something to try to change the momentum. he did at the end, but it was too late.

"I think Rory did a great fight. You don't brawl with a brawler, and I think he did a very good fight, very smart. He shut down Jake Ellenberger. Not only did he shut down a very, very dangerous opponent, he made it look relatively easy."

"I don't care what people say. That's what I believe."

He's right...not Rory's fault that Jake couldn't throw a punch or attempt a takedown. Well, i guess it is Rory's fault, but you get my drift right Crooklyn?!

George sounds like he is defending his lover. He comes across like they used to live together or something.

And you know what else is true? The opposite of true isn't necessarily false. It can be another truth. Amazing, eh? GSP can fluff Rory while the rest of the world - including the paying fans and the president of the UFC - continue to shake their heads and look forward to watching someone else fight.

This is why boxers laugh at us.. He displayed an incomplete skillset. Good enough for MMA, good enough to get to the top 10 as a matter of fact. But MMA fighters have a long way to go making full use of the boxing skillset.

Shocking coming from the human finishing machine, known for ending fights and only begrudgingly (no spell check SON!) going the distance when faced with a world class opponent.

Does GSP not even remember what he was like as a hungry fighter?

I think GSP could just err on the side of: that fight fuckin sucked. If it was actually somewhat entertaining, he obviously wouldn't feel the need to make a public statement about it lol Phone Post 3.0

Yeh, Rory's really boring fights against BJ, Condit, Guymon, Diaz, Che and Pyle should have made you a hater a long time ago.

One fight where his opponent didn't try anything dictates what Rory's going to do for the rest of his career.

The fuck is wrong with you moron?

I can't believe people still cheer for GSP. No one deserves to lose their title more at this point with his pointfighting attitude. I'm ashamed that I was once a nuthugger of this guy who spits on the whole point of martial arts and further perpetuates it's distortion with his pointfighting attitude.

Aren't most martial arts forms of self defense?

Anyway, ask Condit if GSP is just a point fighter...ask most of the people he's dominated ( almost everyone he's fought ) .

Yes, dominated almost everyone he's fought.
