GSP Rory MacDonaldTeammates Georges St-Pierre and Rory MacDonald’s career paths seem to be on a collision course, but the two continue to say they will not fight each other.

St-Pierre holds the UFC welterweight title and MacDonald is currently ranked third in the division.  An eventual match-up appears to be inevitable.

“Those two will fight,” said UFC president Dana White during the UFC World Tour stop in New York on Wednesday.

“Here’s what they’re not going to do: they’re not going to publicly sit here and call each other out and go up and see each other in the gym and face each other.  They’re both professionals.  They understand that they’re both on this path to collide, and I think when the day comes, they’ll deal with it then.  I think that’s the way they’re looking at it,” added White.

MacDonald (15-1) is on a five-fight winning streak.  He defeated top-five ranked Jake Ellenberger on July 27.  The only blemish on his record is a loss to former interim welterweight titleholder Carlos Condit in 2010.

White believes the two are saying they will not fight to maintain a normal atmosphere at the Tristar Gym.

“First of all, Rory lives in his house, meaning his gym.  He lives in Montreal, trains with him, Georges says all kinds of good things about him.  How weird would it be after the fight the other night if he got on the mic and said, ‘I want Georges St-Pierre and I want his belt’? It would be a little awkward flying back to Montreal and training on Monday,” said the UFC president.

When the time comes, White has no doubts that the fight will happen.

“I think these guys are handling it like professionals, doing their thing and when the day comes when they’re there, I guarantee you they’ll fight.”
