Canada’s poor performances are starting to pick up some notice by the peeps at Yahoo Sports:
It appears the easiest way for a UFC fighter worried about job security to keep his job is by moving north of the border. After Saturday’s action, the five Canadian fighters on the non-televised undercard – Jason MacDonald, Tim Hague, Joe Doerksen, T.J. Grant and Jonathan Goulet – are a combined 2-13 in their past 15 Zuffa fights. Granted, this is a bit unfair to MacDonald, who lost due to a freak leg injury on a takedown, but only the cagey veteran Doerksen, who suckered Tom Lawlor into a rear-naked choke, left the Bell Centre cage as a winner.
Past that we’ve got Rory MacDonald, Claude Patrick, and David L’Oiseaux on the UFC 115 card to redeem our national glory and that’s it for a while. Canadian MMA isn’t doing so well.
