Jason MacDonald thinks he’s well rounded

I wasn’t going to bother mentioning that Jason MacDonald and Demian Maia have been slated to fight eachother at UFC 87. I tried … I really did. But there was nothing really interesting to say about it until now. Here’s a quote from Jason MacDonald:

He’s a very high-level jiu-jitsu fighter, a five-time champion in fact. I’ve got a lot of respect for what he’s done in the jiu-jitsu world. But I think we’ve seen time and time again that good mixed martial artists have been able to defeat high-level jiu-jitsu guys. Take even the other night in London, where Kevin Burns, in his first UFC fight, was able to get a triangle choke on Roan Carneiro, who is a high-level black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Maia is not like B.J. Penn who is great in jiu-jitsu but also dominant in all other facets. He is still fairly new to the MMA side of things so I’m hoping to go out there and put on a strong mixed martial arts fight and do much like what Nate Marquardt did to Dean Lister.

The funny thing about this is that Jason MacDonald isn’t that hot of a mixed martial artist himself. Okay, to clarify: he’s got some really solid jiu jitsu but holy shit does his standup ever suck 10,000 dicks. So to say he’s better rounded than Demian Maia just seems retarded – I was actually gonna call this fight “Attack of the Clones” since both of them had the same strengths and weaknesses. Jason’s camp needs to slap him around and ship him off to Fairtex or something before he runs into someone like Rich Franklin again and gets pounded harder than Belladonna gets it in a gangbang.

    MacDonold sucks a bag of dicks. Nice Belladonna reference too!

  • garth

    jason’s got the same strengths as maia, but on a much smaller scale.

  • Lifer

    i dunno… i find his takedown tactic of ducking his head and running at someone from 6 feet away with his arms out-stretched frankenstein styles pretty fucking well-rounded.

  • Geoffr0y

    Does not knowing who Belladonna is make me a noob?

    Garth has the 411.

    Maia is going to show old MacDonald what world class jiu-jitsu really looks like.

    Demian is going to be running shit in the UFC 185 division within a couple of years (assuming Anderson goes up to 205 for mega fights with Chuck/Rampage/Wand/etc).

    “Does not knowing who Belladonna is make me a noob?”


    It means you are probably having consensual sex with an actual woman rather than jerking your man juice into a sock.

    I’m going to need this footage of Belladonna so that I know exactly how hard he’ll get pounded. Maia should be subbing him with the quickness though, (or they’ll both gas going into round 2) so he might be safe from that for now.

    McDonalds striking is about as good as 1 armed man in a boxing match

    Man I just feel bad for Belladonna after seeing that stupid 20/20 episode about her.

  • Adolf Noons

    Belladonna is fuckin hot. And some of us are fortunate enough to have consensual sex with women who enjoy watching porn together. So not only is the questioner a noob, the responder is too.

  • garth

    ^porn defender! neat.

  • Reverend Clint

    i have non consensual sex with women and enjoy porn ;)

  • Burtonchik

    Enough w/ the Star Wars references already…is this fightlinker or geeklinker today, seriously!

    “(or they’ll both gas going into round 2)” if there’s one thing that weak-ass macdonald seems to have it’s gas, IMO he’s more likely to get beaten/subbed to a bloody mess than to just run out of gas

    That picture cracks me up.

  • Nepal

    Hi have consentual sex with prostitutes every week. :-)

    And loving it.

  • Lifer

    dont mind if i do!
