UFC 167: Dana White insists Rory MacDonald will eventually fight Georges St-Pierre

The UFC president insists that Rory MacDonald will fight GSP, "I know it, you know it, everybody knows it."

Dana White fielded questions from the assembled media following yesterday's UFC 167 pre-fight press conference. One topic that came up was the future of top Welterweight contender Rory MacDonald. MacDonald trains with champion Georges St-Pierre at Firas Zahabi's TriStar gym.

Dana doesn't think that will stop the fight. In fact he knows it won't:

"[MacDonald] will fight Georges St-Pierre," White said at Thursday's UFC 167 media scrum. "I know it, you know it, everybody knows it.

"This is my prediction," said White. "I think if he beats Robbie Lawler, he's going to move out of Georges' house, and I think things are going to change. I think this is the fight for him that's going to put him in the direction of fighting GSP. I think if he wins this fight, he's moving out, he's leaving his own place.


"You can't see that this kid wants to fight Georges St-Pierre?" White said. "He's living in Georges St-Pierre's house. What you don't do, is you don't say you want to fight this guy. That's like saying I don't want to punch the guy in the face whose house I'm living in.

"I know Georges St-Pierre," said White. "I know what a professional he is, and I know, when has GSP ever not fought someone who deserved to be next? GSP has never been one of those champions who says ‘I don't think this guy deserves to be fighting me.' he says ‘Who's next.'

MacDonald faces Robbie Lawler and GSP defends his title against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 tomorrow night.
