Normally a stretch like 3 losses in your last 4 fights gets you cut from UFC. But Jason MacDonald, who is in such a stretch after losing ot Nate Quarry at UFC 97, may be spared Das Boot. Dana White said good things about MacDonald after the event, which suggest he'll probably stick around a bit longer despite this stretch and only being 5-5 in UFC.

Macdonald should take a trip to thailand or somthing, or take a year off mma and lock him self in a boxing gym. Dude has horrible at striking, seriously im a better striker.

Im alittle suprised and then again not because he has rebounded and got wins.

Lots of finishes as well, whether he wins or loses.

He's got tons of potential IMO he just has to have a better game plan against his opponents

I suggest he works on his stand up, it's awful. God Awful.

His UFC record looks like the results from a lie detector test.

I think Mac is safe for awhile, 5-5 not the best but he has won sub of the night like 3 times and Ko of the night once so, win or lose it seems to be a memorable match

I'm glad they're not kicking him out yet. Jason's a good fighter. He could be better, but for the calibre of fighter he is, he puts in good work, has good fights, and I would hate to see him get cut. He's one of the few 185 fighters I enjoy watching every chance I can.

I will say this, Macdonald has to win his next fight that is without question.

Mcdonald is a likeable fighter (similar to Houston Alexander) but a lack of wins in the UFC will see anybody gone given due time. The UFC definately favour some fighters but ultimately its their job and they need to produce results, I hope Jason Mcdonald can pull off a win next time.

The only thing mcdonald can really do is learn boxing defense, a lot of people think he will be good if he works his striking but the reality of it is the guy just cannot take a shot, majority of his fights he staggers upon contact, which is a damn shame cuz he has a such a long reach, if he would have just stood up with damien maia and then used that submission defense when damien took him down he coulda won

Jmac might not have been cut this time but next? IMO like all of yours is his stand up needs a lot of work. His jits is good. I mean he went toe to toe with Maia and held his own on the ground. That is saying somthing. He also has 3 SOTN honors. His next fight needs to be a victory or hes gone IMO.
