Quarry vs MacDonald at UFC 97

Sources close to both fighters indicated that bout agreements were signed and the fight was a go. At the time of this writing, it is unknown whether the bout will grace the main card of the event.

Quarry last appeared at UFC 91, where he lost to submission specialist Demian Maia via rear naked choke. It was his first fight since an freak eye injury kept him on the sidelines for six months following his fan-favorite performance against Kalib Starnes at UFC 83. The 36 year-old season one alum of "The Ultimate Fighter" carries an overall record of 10-3, with a 5-2 UFC record.

Jason MacDonald was last seen at the season eight finale of "The Ultimate Fighter," where he submitted to a ferocious ground and pound assault at the hands of American Top Team product Wilson Gouveia. As a small consolation, the Edmonton, Alberta resident was awarded twenty percent of the Gouveia's purse when the Brazilian was unable to make weight. MacDonald carries an overall record of 21-11 with a UFC record of 5-4.

I am leaning towards Quarry in this one.

It should be an interesting fight, dont know who to pick since really where this fight takes place decides who wins, if it stays standing Quarry has it easy but if J-Mac gets Quarry down he should be able to make short work of him.

Nice matchup. Nate's last fight was such a disappointment...there's no shame in getting subbed by Maia, but it was just so fast!

Quarry is one dimensional...then again so is J-Mac.

Fight stays standing, Quarry wins.

If it goes to the ground, J-Mac will sub Quarry easily.

I'm leaning more towards McDonald here. Quarry doesn't have the best TDD.

J mac wins this fight pretty easily I think. All he's got to do is watch tape on how Maia pulled guard, swept, and completely dominated Nate. I can see Quarry winning on the feet, but he's no Rich Franklin so I think J mac will get him down and sub him.

J mac gets slept on because he loses to very skilled MW's but he is basically the perfect gatekeeper and he is better then Quarry.

Quarry should beat the piss out of him standing up.

MacDonalds ground game is okay so I think Quarry can neutralize him on the ground.

J-Mac's takedowns aren't the greatest, but he only needs one or two and he can win this fight.

How about a poll?
