Bullshit, this sucks. McDonald hasnt looked that good in his 2 fights, and Soto is being brought in on short notice. Lawlor always brings it and has heavy hands, as does Weidman. This sucks.



I will agree that it sucks that Lawlor/Weidman gets bumped, but highly disagree saying McDonald hasn't looked that good in his last two fights. His debut fight with Figueroa was great. People were going nuts after that fight talking about both guys. He did stumble some in the Cariaso fight. So at least say he didn't look that good for his last fight.



He didnt look good at all in the Figueroa fight, at all. Hand it to Figueroa for not being an easy opponent but McDonald wasnt very good that night.



Yeah ok, 1st round of that fight McDonald beat Fig. up in the stand up, 2nd had how many sub attempts, not his fault Fig. his amazing sub defense. 3rd he was gassed a little. Can't blame him for being gassed some after all the sub attempts he was trying in the 2nd, but still managed to win the round with the takedowns. Not to mention the fight was also FOTN.

FOTN has no meaning to me, Dana always picks dumb bonus fights.

You keep saying he didn't look good, back it up!! I at least quickly broke down the fight telling why I thought he looked good.

I dont have to back shit up. He had a good first round with his striking, I was more impressed with Figueroa in the 2nd and McDonald was gassed in the 3rd. Big deal, I wasnt really impressed, my opinion, not yours.

Wow, my bad for trying to get a reasoning for your opinion on him. This is a forum after all where were supposed to engage in debate about things.

How much control does spike have over this vs the UFC?

Do you think Spike is trying to sabotage the UFC as part of this war they're in?

If this is SPIKE's attempt to sabotage the UFC, it is an enormous fail.
