It hurts me to say this because I’ve always generally liked Jason MacDonald, but I’ve lost a lot of respect for him over the Joe Doerksen fight. You’ve heard that MacDonald won knockout of the night, but what you haven’t heard is that after the ref waved the fight off Jason stepped back in and dropped a few more punches on Doerksen for good measure. If that wasn’t enough, he also called Doerksen a sore loser during his post fight interview.
If you ask me, MacDonald should have been thanking Doerksen for taking what was basically a soft rebound for ‘The Athlete’ and putting some heat behind it. If it wasn’t for Doerksen’s shit talking, no one would have given a damn about the fight. So Doerksen builds the match up, puts up a very competitive fight and almost finishes Jason MacDonald off with a brutal kimura. And what does he get? Punched in the face after the ref stops the fight.
