Jason MacDonald vs. Rich Franklin

You guys know Jason Macdonald lost to Cote via submission right?

You guys know he also lost to Shonie carter...


I just can't seem him winning this fight unless Rich somehow decides to attempt GnP only strategy and gets caught in a sub.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

Everybody has a chance but I personally think Jason's is pretty slim. I pick Franklin to win this one by KO

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?



Favorite Fighters:

Chuck Liddell
Rich Franklin
Diego Sanchez

Why don't you simple people seem to understand people can get BETTER as they go on???
He is on a 6 fight winning streak. Give the guy a little credit.

I mean he lost to Cote last year, you know how much someone can bring thier game up in a year?
Look at GSP's standup game over the last year.

I just wasnt really impressed over his win over Leben. He was pretty much getting worked on the stand up and gassed really early into the fight. Anyone can amass a 6 win streak when youre fighting a bunch of scrubs. I can kick the shit out of 20 retarded midgets in a row but that doesnt make me a great fighter.

Jason MacDonald shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Rich Franklin. MacDonald's best win was over Chris Leben, for God sakes.

MacDonald has a decent chin, and he was totaly not gassed in the Leben fight. I'm a Macdonald fan, but give the odds to Franklin. Rich Just has better stand-up than Jason...but if things go to the ground...

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


Joe Rogan NutHugger...and proud of it
