When bantamweight contender Michael McDonald (15-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) heard UFC President Dana White was considering him for a potential shot at interim champ Renan Barao (29-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC), the 21-year-old Californian didn't react exactly as you might think.

"It was a very anticlimactic reaction," McDonald admitted to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). "I looked at it, and I thought, 'Oh, that's cool,' and I exited out.

"I really stand by what I've said in previous interviews: I feel right now that I'm ready to fight anybody in the world. I really will accept whoever they put in front of me, no matter who it is. I feel like I'm ready, skill-wise, to take on anybody they put in front of me, and if that's who they're talking about, then that's cool."

uhh that has to be the least thrilled fighter ever getting a title shot, even if it is a pseudo belt.

McDonald is a tough young kid, but Renan is going to destroy him I think. I see Renan getting a finish in this fight.

Mayday vs Barao !!! YES!!!!! I wanna see this fight!
Enough of this waiting for dudes to recoup! Sure Dominators the best.. but who's best while he's laid up? Long story short... Mayday vs Barao needs to happen asap!!!

I get title fights every other day, they really aren't that big of a deal.

I like both fighters. But I think Barao will win and eventually become champ.
Mayday is my Brother's friend on Facebook though.
