Jason MacDonald’s Trainer Criticizes UFC Officials
Posted by UFC Junkie on March 7, 2007 at 9:44 am ET
This past Saturday at Columbus, Ohio’s UFC 68 event, former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin took a major step toward in his championship comeback with a win over Jason MacDonald. The Ohio crowd cheered wildly for Franklin, a Cincinnati native. Unfortunately, UFC officials also celebrated his win — a little too heavily, according to MacDonald’s trainer, Mark Pavelich.

Pavelich, who called for a stop of the fight after he saw MacDonald “wobble” back to his corner after the second round, said he felt disrespected by the UFC’s obvious bias.

From Jonathan Huntington of Sun Media:

“I saw some of the UFC staff jumping up and down like Rich Franklin was their child or something and I took great, great offence to that,” said Pavelich. “I am going to take that into training every day now until we get back there.”

Honestly, I completely understand his frustration.

There’s no doubt that the UFC has invested a lot of time, money and resources into Franklin and his UFC career. He’s one of the organization’s most marketable names, and if he were to reclaim his championship, it could have a direct impact on ticket sales and pay-per-view revenue. Additionally, the clean-cut, All-American Franklin is a perfect ambassador for the sport.

However, MacDonald is no delinquent, and he’s got quite the following of his own — especially north of the border. Recently signed to a new four-fight contract and considered a top-five middleweight prior to this bout with Franklin, MacDonald could be every bit as marketable.

I’m sure it was no secret that the UFC was pulling for Franklin to win this fight. And when MacDonald’s camp’s suspicions were apparently confirmed, it’s obviously going to create some hard feelings.

I’m just impressed that Pavelich stepped up to be the bad guy so this his fighter didn’t have to.

* * * *

According to the above story, MacDonald also received the Edmonton Boxing and Wrestling Commission’s athlete of the year award for 2006 in the mixed martial arts category.

Congrats to MacDonald.

I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of him.



Pavolich cry's like a ***** because his boy got his azz kicked and UFC employees cheered for Franklin. Do they not have the right to cheer for whom they please

I think he's complaining that they were extremely unprofessional. They are both employees of the UFC and to show bias like that is extremely disrespectful. If someone in your work was shown as the favourite over you time and again I'm sure you would take great offense to it

As much as I like Franklin and he himself is a class act I have to agree that it was very unprofessional for his training staff to celebrate as crazy as they did:

1) Dana should never show favoritism (which he always does)
2) It was'nt like this was a title fight.
3) How would the UFC have acted if by chance McDonald had pulled off an upset???

I have seen upsets and to be honest Dana is still happy when that happens, He he always excited to see a great fight and as bad as most of you will think this is, he loves the WINNER. If MacDonald had pulled off the win I believe that Dana would have been right there hugging Jason and acting like he's the new face of the MW Division.

He's going to ride the wave, that's just Dana.
