This is really good news, even if he is boring. He makes a great gatekeeper for the MW division.

LOL !!

the only problem is that McDonald believe that he his a top fighter and he is not, so it is hard to believe him when he was having no clue in his fight against franklin and in his fight against Okami !! LOL

he also have been destroy by Cote in his front of his own crowd i think and he will never, i mean NEVER be a ufc champ or title contender !!!

so, he can speak but he can not deliver so ...

good to hear, he may be a bit of a slow starter, but he poses a challenge against any MW in the UFC (excpet Hendo and SIlva imo)...

I think Okami vs Leben would be cool....winner faces the winner of Franklin and Herman....and then they fight for #1 contender (to face winner of Henderson and Silva)

I thought that Okami had already signed a contract with K-1?

first of all it was a DQ win, second silva was smashing him before it hit the ground. not dissing the guy but he got off easy, if they fight again silva via KO round 2 or 3, however the hendo/silva fight will be electric

i agree with you on mcdonald, except okami is boring hes like watching arlovski/sylvia 3 over and over again, but he is a good fighter dont get me wrong, but theres no way he beats silva, if you call okami's victory over silva a legit defeat than you didnt watch the fight. silva was dominate and would probably do the same, he wouldnt be stupid enough to get a DQ while he has the belt. no freakin way,
