MFC have put on some great cards. I really hope we start including them in the Secondary league soon.

Im going to assume that he will get the winner of Macdonald and Lutter? Im sure we'll find out this weekend after the fight takes place, also I think he needs a warm up fight before he gets a title shot.

I hope to god that MacDonald wins but something tells me that Lutter will pull off some redonkulous submission. But if all goes well then J-Mac should win a decision. And this also poses a better match up for Leites.

WAR Alberta MMA. It's surprising to me that Calgary and Edmonton don't get mentioned along with T Dot, Montreal and Van City. Guaranteed sellouts in both cities, any UFC.
