UFC Quick Quote: Jon Jones vs Rashad Evans puts Georges St. Pierre in an 'awkward situation'

"It's a pretty weird situation right now. I was in Albuquerque not too long ago and both guys were there. And unfortunately Rashad got hurt and I was there when it happened. I don't know what to say. Me, I would not fight a friend but it happens sometimes that I have two friends that are fighting each other. It's kind of an awkward situation."

Apparently random white guys aren't the only thing to come between Georges St. Pierre and Rashad Evans now that "Suga" is challenging Jon Jones for the UFC light heavyweight title later this year. Because all three fighters have an affiliation with Greg Jackson's MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, St. Pierre tells the Canadian Press he's in no "Rush" to choose sides and admits to being in a "weird situation" when it comes to the prospect of his two friends duking it out inside the Octagon. GSP says he would never fight a friend, but can he be sure a friend would never fight him? The shine from his golden belt can do a lot to hypnotize hungry welterweight contenders, but maybe not as much as the shine from a box of gold coins Dana White leaves on their doorstep. Does the Canadian have a target on his back? Or is "Jones vs. Evans" a rare exception to the rule?
