It's not all that surprising that one of the first questions asked of him in a recent AMA on Reddit was in r read news >>

For Rory MacDonald, fighting longtime friend and training partner Georges St-Pierre would be the same as stabbing him in the back. On paper, a potential UFC title fight between St-Pierre and MacDonald screams dollar signs. How could fans not obsess over seeing one of MMA’s all-time greats compete against his longtime pupil in a battle of generations?

While much has changed in MMA over the past few years, at least we can take comfort in knowing that fewer things still liven up a Nick Diaz interview faster than the mention of Georges St-Pierre's name. In classic Diaz fashion, Stockton's favorite son meandered through a myriad of topics during Monday's appearance The MMA Hour, from his near two-year layoff to his upcoming return fight against Anderson Silva UFC 183.
