UFC Quick Quote: Rory MacDonald and Georges St. Pierre are not going to fight

Didn't Rashad Evans once say that about Jon Jones?

"No, me and Georges aren't fighting. When we get to that point, me and Georges and our coaches, we'll come to a solution. When we get to the road, we'll cross it. We're not gonna fight."

In case you didn't believe him when he said it back in 2012, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Rory MacDonald tells the NY Post he's (still) not going to fight his TriStar teammate Georges St. Pierre, even if "Rush" maintains his stranglehold on the division title through his Johny Hendricks fight at UFC 167 and beyond (this person disagrees). Of course, "Ares" first has to put himself in a position to challenge for the 170-pound strap, starting with his Jake Ellenberger fight at the UFC on FOX 8 event tomorrow night (July 27, 2013) at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington. As we learned from Anderson Silva's last fight, there is really no point in fantasizing about super-duper showdowns until all obstacles have been cleared and as of this writing, "The Juggernaut" and "Bigg Rigg" are not going to just roll over. Let's revisit this one later this year, assuming we haven't already put it to bed on Sunday morning.
