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.

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.
