    No offense to Loiseau but MacDonald definitely deserves this fight a little more! Three straight wins over solid opponents and UFC Veterans! Loiseau only has a win over Chester Post since his last UFC bout!

    MacDonald will put the place to sleep. Lost to Lutter, Split against Hutcherson and a sleeper against Matt Horwich.

    I think MacDonald has been fighting in a safe manner to ensure victory so that he can get back to the UFC.

    Buck don’t forget the snoozefest against Vernon White.

    Thankfully only about 200 people saw that one.

    I’m happy for J Mac. I’ve only seen one of the Crow’s fights and that was the lopsided loss to Franklin. His last stint in the UFC lasted 1 fight, and from what I read, he did not put on a good performance in that loss. I think Macdonald will put on a good fight. I just wonder if his body will be up to the challenge.
