MacDonald vs Gouveia at TUF 8 Finale

The fight will be a part of the televised broadcast featuring the finalists in the light heavyweight and lightweight divisions of the eighth season of the Spike TV reality show.

MacDonald’s manager, Mark Pavelich, confirmed the fight during an appearance on MMAWeekly Radio on Wednesday night.

Currently sporting a 5-3 record in the Octagon, MacDonald has always been seen as one of the toughest match-ups in the all of the 185-pound division. With a very dangerous ground game and a rapidly developing stand-up arsenal, the Canadian has been in the cage with some of the best fighters the division has to offer.

On the other side of the fight, Wilson Gouveia comes into the bout with MacDonald after making his move to the middleweight division in his most recent outing against Ryan Jensen. Gouveia submitted Jensen in the second round of their fight at UFC Fight Night in September.

The fight could be pivotal to an ever-expanding middleweight division as both fighters are trying to get closer to contender status and will be gunning for an exciting win on a highly publicized card.

The Ultimate Fighter 8 finale show will take place on Dec. 13 and will be telecast live on Spike TV.
I am most likely going to go with Gouveia on this one.

Not only that, this is Gouveia's first fight at MW, always get a mixed bag of performances when a fighter drops a weight class.

Really good fight - Gouveia has the standup - but i can see macdonald more then holding his own on the ground and he would have better cardio.
macdonald has really been impressive in his last 2 fights - i can see him grinding out a win

I'll pick Gouveia because the guys talent IMO is way up there.

But Macdonald is no joke he's going to come prepared and if Gouveia blows it again like he has in the past he will lose.
