Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.26.2014
- Georges St-Pierre recently spoke about Rory MacDonald deserving a title shot and more. Here are the highlights…
On Rory's Next Fight: "I do believe Rory deserves the next title shot. I think he deserves it, and I do believe Rory will be champion."
On Rory's Loss to Robbie Lawler: "The loss to Robbie Lawler made Rory a far more experienced and skilled martial artist," St-Pierre said. "He has all the tools to be champion. I think he actually beat Lawler, who is one of the most dangerous guys in the division."
On Not Fighting Rory: "I was not interested in fighting Rory, and Rory was not interested in fighting me," St-Pierre said. "Rory is my friend. He's like a brother to me, a training partner. I wish him the best of luck, and if he's going to fight for the belt, I'm going to be in the gym to help him."
On Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler For The Vacant Title: "I'm going to watch it," St-Pierre said. "Either of them can get a knockout, but I believe Johny is the better wrestler. If he wants to use wrestling, it will be a big advantage. Anything can happen in the fight, so we'll see who wins."
