Georges St. Pierre is on good terms with both UFC 145 competitors, Jon Jones and Rashad Evans. He has said in the past that the rivalry was a bit of an "awkward situation" for him, and today, the UFC welterweight champion talked about the highly anticipated bout on twitter. He was careful to remain neutral though, as he didn't exactly pick sides:

So, @UFC 145's main event: Who's your favourite to win it?

I've trained with Rashad and Jon and all I can say is that any small mistake will carry a hefty price, either way.

Here's what GSP said several months ago when the relationship between Evans and Jones started to get sour:

"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."

Since he's stuck in the middle of a feud between both fighters who he's on good terms with, I can't really blame St. Pierre for feeling a bit awkward and being reserved on his UFC 145 prediction.
