Franklin has a pretty good wrestling background.

obviously macdonald is going to lose, did you watch him vs leben? he lost the first round, and his standup is poor. franklin is 20 times better than leben and macdonald had a tough time taking leben to the ground and beating him. franklin will win this in the 1st round guaranteed




What a stud

Franklin will find the large holes in MacDonald's stand-up defense long before he gets submitted.

If Franklin loses will you delete your account and swear on your mothers eyes never to post in this forum again? I mean if you're so sure that you know exactly whats going to happen...if it's so "obvious"

no because anything can happen in a MMA fight, the only way macdonald will win is by a lucky punch or a fluke, mark my words

MacDonald could pull off an upset if he stays focus for his fight and has a strong game plan against Franklin.

There are a lot of intangibles in this fight that could give him the win (e.g. octagon rust, face getting rearranged by Silva, etc.)

Although it is clear that Franklin is much more well-rounded and has fought more quality fighters than MacDonald has.

Anyone has a chance in a fight, MacDonald may win if he gets the fight to the ground.

The same people who "GUARANTEED" Hughes' win over GSP are probably the same ones who think MacDonald has no chance. Not pointing out anyone specific, but it's a high-level fight...anything can happen. Every fighter has stregths and weakness's and can be caught off guard, or in a solid offensive gameplan. Like I said I see how Franklin is the favorite, but to count out J-Mac is just closed-minded.

Fighters I enjoy watching:
Fedor
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson
Martin Kampman
Jake Shields
Thiago Tavares
Urijah Faber


Joe Rogan NutHugger...and proud of it
