As far as UFC president Dana White is concerned, he still hasn’t heard Rory (Ares) MacDonald say no to a potential fight with welterweight champ Georges (Rush) St. Pierre.

“I don’t think Rory ever said that he wouldn’t fight GSP,” White said on a recent UFC media call. “Rory said he doesn’t want to talk about fighting GSP. I don’t think he’s ever said he won’t fight GSP.”

Unfortunately for MacDonald, in some ways he’s his own worst enemy when it comes to the buzz surrounding a clash with his Tristar teammate.

Though the B.C. native has long said he would never face St. Pierre, he continues to turn heads in the UFC’s welterweight division. The more wins he racks up, the more fans want to see him challenge for the championship, which inevitably leads to further questioning from reporters.

MacDonald is also currently riding a four-fight win streak and holds the No. 3 spot on the UFC’s official rankings.
